NBA Playoffs – 2018, Live Stream, Schedule, TV Coverage

Another year, another NBA postseason underway: NBA Playoffs 2018 although this time around there isn’t the certainty about the Finals that we’ve seen recently. The Warriors are banged up and the Cavs struggled to find their identity in the regular season, leaving the door wide open for a new champion to emerge.

NBA Playoffs

But first, we get started on Saturday.

All the games will be carried on four TV channels TNT, ESPN, ABC and NBA TV but there are also plenty of streaming options for you cord-cutters out there (or those of you who just aren’t near a TV). Below we’ve listed each series, along with the schedule and how to watch every game online.
