NBA Playoffs 2020 scores, live stream, watch online, TV channel

Over 10 months after the 2019-20 NBA season began, the playoff field is finally set, with the action set to get underway on the afternoon of Monday, Aug. 17. For the first time in league history, the final spot in the postseason picture was determined by a play-in game between the eighth and ninth seeds in the Western Conference. The Portland Trail Blazers came out victorious over the Memphis Grizzlies in that game, and as a result they will face off against the top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers in the first round. 

Due to the need to play inside of the bubble at Disney World, home-court advantage has been largely eliminated this year, since there is no travel, no fans in attendance, and no true home or away teams. Otherwise, the format remains the largely same, with the top eight teams in each conference playing best-of-seven series, and the winner of each conference meeting in the Finals, which are scheduled to begin on Sept. 30. 

Here’s a look at the schedule for every day of the first round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs.
