The Phoenix Suns' season may be over, which is among the reasons we're discussing whether or not the Suns should trade Steve Nash, but the NBA rolls on as the Playoffs begin Saturday. Here's a look at the weekend's NBA Playoffs schedule. Please note that all times listed are Pacific.
Saturday, Apr. 16:
Chicago Bulls (East no. 1) vs. Indiana Pacers (8), 10 a.m., ESPN
Miami Heat (East no. 2) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (7), 12:30 p.m., ABC
Orlando Magic (East no. 4) vs. Atlanta Hawks (5), 4 p.m., ABC
Dallas Mavericks (West no. 3) vs. Portland Trail Blazers (6), 6:30 p.m., ESPN
Please make the jump to read Sunday's schedule.
Sun, Apr. 17:
San Antonio Spurs (West no. 1) vs. Memphis Grizzlies (8), 10 a.m., TNT
Los Angeles Lakers (West no. 2) vs. New Orleans Hornets (7), 12:30 p.m., ABC
Boston Celtics (East no. 3) vs. New York Knicks (6), 7 p.m., TNT
Oklahoma City Thunder (West no. 4) vs. Denver Nuggets (5), 6:30 p.m., TNT
Phoenix fans may want to take note how the rival Spurs and Lakers fare in their respective series, and perhaps keep an eye on former Suns Jason Richardson, Earl Clark, and Hedo Turkoglu in the Magic's series against the Hawks. And, of course, Amar'e Stoudemire and Mike D'Antoni led the Knicks to their first playoff appearance in nine seasons, so that battle with Boston will be hard to ignore.
