2019 NBA Playoffs: Bracket, series scores, schedules, results and road to Finals for every postseason team

Fallback Image

The second round of the NBA playoffs is in full swing, as three of the four semifinal series got underway over the weekend. 

In the East, the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics both pulled out convincing series-opening wins over the Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks, respectively. The wins gave both teams the early 1-0 advantage and sent a clear message to the opposition that they would have their hands full.

In the West, the Warriors and Rockets kicked off their rematch of last season’s Western Conference finals, and it didn’t disappoint. The game was a closely contested one all the way until the final buzzer, but ultimately the defending champions were able to walk away with a win and an early lead in the series. 

On Monday night, the Sixers will look to bounce back in Toronto and avoid falling into an early 2-0 hole. In order to do so, the Sixers will need a bounce-back performance from All-Star center Joel Embiid, who was was held in check in Game 1 and limited to just 16 points and eight rebounds in 30 minutes of action. Then, the fourth and final semifinal series will kick off as the Denver Nuggets will host the Portland Trail Blazers. With a conference finals appearance just four wins away either way, both teams have come a long way as the Blazers were swept in the first round last season, and the Nuggets failed to qualify for the postseason. 

Here is a look at the bracket, and each team’s path to the Larry O’Brien trophy.
