I keep saying it because I believe it — one of the top four seeds in the West is going to get knocked off in the first round.

Not sure who, but the Dallas/Portland and Oklahoma City/Denver matchups are going to be tough ones. (Sorry Cuban, but you know us Internet reporters…) Well, tough for them, fun for you as a fan because you just get to watch some close, entertaining games.

When do you get to watch? We can help you out with that. Here is the Western Conference playoff schedule. The asterisk (*) means if the game is necessary. Ironically, all times listed are Eastern and we’ve told you the broadcaster where we know it.
