The 2023 NBA playoffs rolled on Tuesday, with the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets both advancing to the second round in the Western Conference. The No. 4 Suns and No. 5 Nuggets will face off in the next round after knocking out the Clippers and Timberwolves in five games, respectively. The Suns won four in a row against the Clippers, who were without Paul George the entire series and lacked Kawhi Leonard after Game 2. The Nuggets ousted Minnesota in Game 5 after missing the chance to beat the Wolves over the weekend.

In the Eastern Conference, the Celtics missed a chance to shut out the Hawks on Tuesday night, squandering a fourth quarter lead in Game 5. The series shifts back to Atlanta for Game 6 with the 76ers – the only team to date has continued in the East — awaiting the winner.

On Wednesday-evening, there are four games with three possible closeouts. The Knicks are 3-1 ahead of the Cavaliers, the Lakers have a 3-1 lead over the Grizzlies, and the Heat could displace the top-seeded Bucks. The nightcap is the Warriors versus the Kings in Sacramento. Game 6 of that series is Friday.

Below is the daily playoff schedule, as well as the results so far, the playoff bracket, dates, times and TV info.
