The NBA Playoffs continue on April 17th with four teams battling it out on the court. Kicking off the night is Game 2 of the Brooklyn Nets against the Philadelphia 76ers, following a decisive win by the 76ers in the series opener. Later, the Golden State Warriors look to even their series with the Sacramento Kings after an intense Game 1 showdown.
TNT will broadcast both games nationally, with coverage starting at 7:30 PM ET for the Nets vs. 76ers matchup. Local fans can tune into NBC Sports Philadelphia and YES for regional coverage. The Warriors vs. Kings game will air at 10:00 PM ET, with local broadcasts available on NBC Sports Bay Area and NBC Sports California.
Former MVP James Harden, now playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, will look to replicate his outstanding performance from Game 1 against his former team, the Brooklyn Nets. Harden, who forced his exit from Brooklyn earlier this season, demonstrated his prowess with 23 points, 13 assists, and four rebounds in the first game of the series.
Despite Joel Embiid’s relatively quiet 26-point, five-rebound, and three-assist showing, the 76ers still managed to secure victory. The Nets may continue their strategy of focusing on Embiid, hoping the rest of the 76ers lineup, including Harden, won’t capitalize on the attention given to their star center.
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings are eager to extend their lead in the series against the Golden State Warriors. In their first playoff appearance since 2006, the Kings showed resilience and determination, with De’Aaron Fox delivering an impressive 38-point performance. Domantas Sabonis provided solid support, contributing 12 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, and three steals in Game 1.
