The second round is underway in the 2023 NBA playoffs, and Wednesday night will scrap the second-seeded Celtics to avoid losing the first two games of their series at home to a 76ers squad, who may again be without Joel Embiid, Philadelphia’s new MVPas he continues his comeback after a knee injury.

Meanwhile, the series that many hoped the basketball gods would deliver — Stephen Curry’s Warriors vs. LeBron James’ Lakers — started Tuesday in San Francisco, and it was Anthony Davis who led Los Angeles on both ends of the floor stealing home field advantage. Thursday is Game 2. Previously, the Knicks tied their series with the Heat, though it wasn’t nearly as easy to win, as New York had its two best players in Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle, while Miami was without All-Star Jimmy Bulter due to an ankle injury. Game 3 is Saturday afternoon in Miami.

As the series changes and the second round schedule gets underway, we’re keeping up with everything you need to know about the 2023 NBA playoffs. Below is the daily playoff schedule, as well as previous results, playoff series, dates, times and TV/streaming information.
