How to watch 2024 NBA playoffs: Games today, TV channel with Bucks, Wolves, Clippers going for 2-0 leads

The 2024 NBA playoffs schedule continues Tuesday with three more Game 2s. It’s Timberwolves-Suns, Bucks-Pacers and Clippers-Mavericks on Tuesday, and Minnesota, Milwaukee and Los Angeles are all trying to take 2-0 series leads. It’s been a good first round for higher seeds so far, as the home teams are off to an 11-0 start. That record stayed perfect after a chaotic Monday night which saw both the Knicks and Nuggets rally for last-minute wins.

The first round could run through Sunday, May 5 with eight best-of-seven series, and we’ll have multi-game nights for at least the first week of the first round. The NBA has announced dates for every potential first-round game, as well as times and TV info through April 28. The up-to-date NBA playoff schedule is below.
