2014 NBA Playoffs: The complete first round schedule


Sixteen teams, 8 series, round one of the NBA Playoffs is upon us, finally.

It’s time to settle in, buckle up and enjoy the best players on the planet duke it out for a shot at making history. Will the Miami Heat make it to a fourth straight NBA Finals? Will they complete the rare three-peat?

Or will the San Antonio Spurs atone for their near-win last season? Perhaps Kevin Durant is finally ready to take his throne on top of the basketball world?

Is Doc Rivers the missing piece for the Los Angeles Clippers? Will the Indiana Pacers rebound from an atrocious regular season stretch run?

We’re about to answer all of those questions, and more, starting Saturday. Here’re the complete playoff schedule:
