2024 NBA playoffs bracket, schedule, scores: Mavs knock out Clippers, advance to face Thunder in second round

The 2024 NBA playoffs are in full swing, and the Knicks and Pacers both advanced to the second round on Thursday night. The Knicks finished off their wild series with the 76ers, winning Game 6 in Philly by three points to move on to the Eastern Conference semifinals for the second year in a row. The Pacers, meanwhile, ousted the Bucks on Thursday night, winning Game 6 at home for a 4-2 series win. The Bucks did not have Giannis Antetokounmpo for any of their brief playoff run, as their two-time MVP was sidelined with a calf injury. 

The Knicks and Pacers will square off in the second round, and just 10 teams remain in the postseason bracket. The Celtics became the first East team to punch their ticket to the second round on Wednesday night. The Celtics eliminated the Heat, blowing out Miami in Game 5 for a 4-1 series victory. The top-seeded Celtics will face either the Cavaliers or Magic in the next round. 

The Timberwolves, Nuggets and Thunder are all moving on in the West. Minnesota and Oklahoma City swept the Suns and Pelicans, respectively, while Denver took out the Lakers in five games.

On Friday, the Mavericks punched their ticket to the next round with a lopsided win over the Clippers. Dallas will go on to face the Thunder.
