With the Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves winning the final two NBA Play-In Tournament games Friday night, the field is set for the 2023 NBA Playoffs. First-round action gets underway with four games on Saturday and four more on Sunday.

The NBA’s post season promises to be an exciting one

At this point, it should be fairly safe to assume that we’re in for a wild ride in the NBA’s postseason. From the Suns and their new star Kevin Durant, to the defending champion Golden State Warriors who have struggled at times, there are a number of intriguing stories to follow. Take the top-seeded Denver Nuggets for example. Can their MVP candidate, Nikola Jokic, lead them to glory? Can the Celtics make it all the way back to finals and what about Giannis and the Bucks? Suffice to say, it’s going to be lit which is why it’s important to know all of the key dates and games. So, with no further delays let’s take a look at the schedule
