NBA Playoff Schedule 2020: Up to date bracket, dates, occasions and TV channels for every second spherical collection

Time flies by the NBA. More than a month after the season restart brought 22 teams to Orlando, Florida, we are facing an “Elite Eight”.

The Eastern Conference’s top candidates quickly took care of business in the first round of the 2020 NBA playoffs. The Raptors, Celtics and Heat each beat their opponents, and it only took the Bucks five games to eliminate the magic.

There was a lot of drama at the Western Conference, however, as three of the four series in the first round played at least six games. Now the Lakers, Clippers, Nuggets and Rockets are fighting for a chance to play in the conference finals.

Below is everything you need to know about watching the 2020 NBA Playoffs, including TV series shows.
