NBA Playoff schedule 2013: All day playoff action, starting in Chicago and ending in Houston


Playoff action begins Saturday afternoon and includesh four games total. The night ends with the Thunder trying to adjust to playing without Russell Westbrook.

The second weekend of the 2013 NBA Playoffs has arrived, kicking off with a packed schedule on Saturday. Four games are on tap, beginning with the Chicago Bulls looking to take a 3-1 series lead over the Brooklyn Nets, and ending with Oklahoma City Thunder continuing their playoff run without Russell Westbrook in Houston.

The Bulls have won two straight games against the Nets after Brooklyn opened the series with a win. Brooklyn's offense has gone stagnant, as has been documented by Mike Prada. Can the Nets adjust and generate offense, or is the Bulls' active defense too much for Deron Williams to adjust to? Williams started off the series strong, getting to the rim and finishing, but has been settling for perimeter shots in both Game 2 and Game 3.

Game time: 2 p.m. (ET)

Following that, the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers lock up for Game 4 in Memphis. After losing two games in Los Angeles, the Grizzlies went home and picked up a big victory over the Clippers as Zach Randolph made his presence felt. Randolph put the Grizzlies' offense on his back, scoring 27 points while also grabbing 11 rebounds. Will Memphis tie the series at 2-2, winning both games at home, or will the Clippers take a commanding 3-1 lead back to L.A.?

Game time: 4:30 p.m. (ET)

The Indiana Pacers hold a 2-0 lead will attempt to push the Atlanta Hawks to the brink of elimination in Game 3. Paul George took over Game 2 for Indiana, scoring 27 points while pulling down eight rebounds. The Hawks will need more than the 13 points Al Horford put in to avoid a 3-0 hole.

Game time: 7 p.m. (ET)

Capping off the night is Game 3 between the Thunder and Rockets. The Thunder will play their first game since Russell Westbrook's knee injury and will have to adjust against a Rockets team playing their first playoff game in Houston since 2009. Reggie Jackson can't be expected to replace Westbrook, but must play solid minutes. Kevin Durant will have the basketball world's eyes on him as he adjusts to playing in an offense without Westbrook.

Game time: 9:30 p.m. (ET)
