SB Nation Network Playoff Thread for Monday night

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

A couple of Conference semifinal Games 1's tonight, with the Heat hosting the Bulls and the Spurs hosting the Warriors

I know we were hoping/expecting for the Clippers to still be playing, but the show must go on. The NBA Playoffs continue tonight with two more second round series getting started. Oklahoma City and Indiana got things started with wins yesterday -- who will get that crucial Game 1 victory tonight.

I gets started with the Heat and the Bulls in Miami at 7 p.m. Eastern, 4 Pacific. LeBron will receive his MVP trophy before the game. Unfortunately for Chicago, they'll be playing without Luol Deng, and without Deng they won't have much chance. They game is on TNT.

The late game has the surprising Golden State Warriors visiting the Spurs in San Antonio. The Warriors shocked the Nuggets in the first round with a small ball lineup that took every open shot it got. Can Stephen Curry and company do the same thing to the mighty Spurs? Even if they can't, it figures to be wildly entertaining.
