Eastern Conference playoff schedule. Set your DVR now.

May 11, 2012, 8:35 PM EDT

Miami Heat's James and Wade look on during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Chicago Reuters

Because we know you plan your lives around the NBA playoffs just like we do, here is the schedule for the two Eastern Conference semifinals. At least as it stands right now. There is a whole lot of TBD in there for times.

If you want to talk about the series, we have previewed both Miami vs. Indiana and Boston vs. Philadelphia. Also, note that there are no back-to-backs as had been considered for this round (and could happen in the West).

Obviously, games 5, 6 and 7 are if necessary. All times are Eastern. Even the TBD.

Miami vs. Indiana

Game 1 – Sunday, at Miami 3:30PM (ABC)
Game 2 – Tuesday, at Miami 7:00PM (TNT)
Game 3 – Thursday, at Indiana TBD (ESPN)
Game 4 – May 20, at Indiana 3:30PM (ABC)
Game 5 – May 22 at Miami TBD (TNT)
Game 6 – May 24 at Indiana TBD
Game 7 – May 26 at Miami TBD

Boston vs. Philadelphia

Game 1 – Saturday, at Boston, 8:00PM (TNT)
Game 2 – Monday, at Boston 7:00PM (TNT)
Game 3 – Wednesday, at Philadelphia 7:00PM (TNT)
Game 4 – Friday, at Philadelphia TBD (ESPN)
Game 5 – May 21 at Boston (TBD) TNT
Game 6 – May 23 at Philadelphia TBD (ESPN)
Game 7 – May 26 at Boston TBD

      Lol. I agree; playoffs must be watched live. I still DVR the good series in case something amazing happens and I have to see it again. Glad I got that Clippers 27-point comeback on DVR.

    Anyone know why the No. 5 Celtics are playing the No. 8 76ers? Shouldn’t the No. 2 Heat play the No. 8 76ers? (Highest seed plays lowest seed)

      The NBA does not re-seed during the playoffs. So it was 1/8 vs. 4/5 in the first round and because both were upsets we get 5/8 (rather than 1/4) on this side and 2/3 on the other.

    The pacers are the only remotely likable team in that pile of turds. Thank God for Kevin Durant. Deliver us from the turds OKC!

    DVR? Really? Does anyone actually do that for a basketball game?
