2024 NBA playoffs bracket, schedule, scores: Every second-round matchup set as Cavs advance to face Celtics

The first round of the 2024 NBA playoffs wrapped up Sunday afternoon as the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off a big comeback in Game 7 against the Orlando Magic to advance to the second round. The Cavs, who were led by Donovan Mitchell in the series against the Magic, will face the top-seeded Boston Celtics in the second round.

Before Sunday, seven other teams had already advanced to the second round — the Mavericks, Knicks, Pacers, Celtics, Thunder, Nuggets, Timberwolves — and one of them already has a 1-0 lead in the conference semifinals. The Timberwolves took down the reigning champion Nuggets in Denver in Game 1 of their second-round matchup on Saturday.

Game 2 of Nuggets-Wolves is set for Monday night, the same day the Knicks and Pacers kick off their second-round series. Thunder-Mavericks and Celtics vs. either the Cavs or Magic will get started on Tuesday. The second round could run through Monday, May 20.
