The 2024 NBA playoffs schedule continues Sunday with four more Game 1s in the first round. Celtics-Heat, Clippers-Mavericks, Bucks-Pacers and Thunder-Pelicans all get started on Sunday after the other four playoff series started on Saturday. It was a good day for home teams on Saturday, as the Cavs, Wolves, Knicks and Nuggets protected their home courts to take 1-0 series leads. The Celtics, Clippers, Bucks and Thunder will try to continue that trends on Sunday.

CBS Sports experts made their first-round picks ahead of the series tipping off, and the writing staff thinks the top-seeded Celtics and Thunder won’t have trouble advancing to the second round. It also appears the Bucks could be on upset alert against the sixth-seeded Pacers.

The first round could run through Sunday, May 5 with eight best-of-seven series. The NBA has announced dates for every potential first-round game, as well as times and TV info for the first four games in each series. The up-to-date NBA playoff schedule is below.
