The NBA and WNBA Playoffs are happening simultaneously. Here are the games on for tonight.

WNBA Playoffs continue without the Mystics

The second round is on tonight starting at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The Mystics were eliminated last Tuesday, so a new champion will be crowned this year. For now, the single elimination games continue.

  • Phoenix Mercury vs. Minnesota Lynx, 7 p.m. ET
  • Connecticut Sun vs. Los Angeles Sparks, 9 p.m. ET.

NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs

The Eastern Conference Playoffs continue tonight at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. The Boston Celtics will face off against a Miami Heat team in Game 2 of their series. The Heat have been the “Cinderellas” of sorts in this year’s playoffs, but at this point, they may very well win the conference championship.

Enjoy the games tonight.
