NBA Playoffs Live TV, Online Coverage for Round 2

The NBA Playoffs live TV schedule rolls on this week as Round 2 action gets underway. Round 1 has its share of upsets, however none may have been bigger than the defending champion San Antonio Spurs losing in 7 games to the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Spurs had a chance to win the series in 6 games after winning Game 5 in LA to take a 3-2 series lead, but the Clippers went on to win games 6 and 7 and advancing to the semifinals where hey will take on the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Semifinals. Now CP3, Blake Griffin and company will try to shut down James Harden, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard with a trip to the Western Conference Finals on the line.

Although the Atlanta Hawks finished in first place overall in the East, it seems that the series getting all the hype in the East is the Bulls vs Cavaliers. A healthy Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Joakim Noah will sure make it hard for LeBron and the Cavs to waltz into the Eastern Finals. Add to that the Cavs will be without Kevin Love and the dream of a title in Cleveland may be put on hold until next season.

While Chicago and Cleveland both have the star power to make it to the NBA Finals, don’t underestimate the Hawks or Wizards. The Hawks may have struggled a bit in Round 1 vs. Brooklyn, but they didn’t finish with a 35-6 record at home by accident.

Below is a look at the upcoming Round 2 schedule along with where and when to find all the action on television and online. Games will be aired on ABC, ESPN, TNT and will also be carried live online through TNTdrama.com and various ESPN live feeds.
