NBA playoffs: Bracket, games today, TV schedule, live stream, dates, start times as first round tips off – CBS Sports


The 2022 NBA playoffs are here. Twenty teams made the postseason, but that number has been trimmed to 16 with the conclusion of the play-in tournament. The first round of the playoffs gets underway Saturday afternoon, and the Mavericks host the Jazz in the first game. After a season full of surprises, the title fight appears to be wide open in both conferences, and there will be plenty of tasty first-round matchups.

The Nets and Celtics will do battle in a highly anticipated 2 vs. 7 matchup in the Eastern Conference. And the fifth-seeded Raptors will also try to pull off an upset of the fourth-seeded 76ers. In the West, the upstart Grizzlies will square off against the also-young-and-hungry Timberwolves, while the Warriors will welcome Stephen Curry back to the mix against Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets.
