The 2023 NBA playoffs continue Tuesday with Knicks and Clippers looking to take two straight road games against the Cavaliers and Kings, respectively. New York and Los Angeles have solid squads and a depth that could spell trouble for the higher seeds if Cleveland and Phoenix have to go on the road down 0-2. And without significant adjustments and a strong game from Trae Young, trailing 0-2 is likely where the Hawks will find themselves after facing the Celtics on Tuesday.

Surprisingly, offense was harder to come by in Sacramento Monday night as the Kings pushed the Warriors into an 0-2 hole, a place defend champion Golden State has never been in during the previous 27 playoff series played during the Splash Brothers era. However, it was the ejection of Draymond Green following his chest stomp of Domantas Sabonis after the Kings’ big man foot grab in the fourth quarter that will likely go down as the defining incident of this series. In a stomp of a different kind, Monday night also saw MVP finalist Joel Embiid post a double-double in Philadelphia’s comeback win over Brooklyn for a 2-0 series lead.

Below is the daily playoff schedule as well as the results that are in so far, the playoff bracket, dates, times and TV info.
