SI.com has all the dates, times, TV schedules and analysis for your 2014 NBA playoffs needs.

The first round of the postseason marked one of the best in NBA history, with 23 games decided by five points or less, eight overtime games and five Game 7s, tying the league record for most in any playoffs.

In the semifinal round, the Miami Heat took down the Brooklyn Nets in five games and the Indiana Pacers outlasted the Washington Wizards in six, setting up an Eastern Conference finals rematch from last season. Out west, the San Antonio Spurs dispatched the Portland Trail Blazers in five games, while the Oklahoma City Thunder edged the Los Angeles Clippers in six.

In the conference finals, the Heat staved off the Pacers in the East for the second straight year, beating Indiana in six games. In the West, the Spurs and Thunder traded blowouts before San Antonio prevailed in a Game 6 OT clash.

That sets us up for an NBA Finals rematch between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Miami outlasted San Antonio in seven games last season to capture its second straight title.

Below are the dates for the 2014 NBA Finals. For results and analysis from the first, second and third rounds, follow the jump.
