The Oklahoma City Thunder (57-25) return to the postseason -- in Oklahoma City -- for the first time since the 2018-19 season. With the OKC Thunder grabbing the No. 1 Seed in the Western Conference, they will tip off their playoff voyage on Sunday, April 21 against a to-be-determined opponent.

While the Thunder will not know their matchup until after Friday's Western Conference Play-In game between the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans, the NBA has released the schedule for the 2024 first-round series of the NBA Playoffs.

Oklahoma City will begin the postseason in the Paycom Center on Sunday, April 21 at 8:30 pm CT on TNT. The Thunder will then enjoy two days off before hosting Game 2 of the series on April 24 at 8:30 pm CT on TNT.

The Oklahoma City Thunder then hit the road for Games 3 and 4 on April 27 and 29 at 8:30 pm CT and 3:30 pm CT respectively.

If Game 5 is necessary, the Thunder will host that contest on May 1 on a to-be-determined channel and at a to-be-determined time. Game 6 will take place May 3 if needed on the road without a time or television network set yet and a decisive game 7 will take place on May 5 in Oklahoma City if necessary with tip-time and television to be decided.

On top of these games being found on National TV, all games besides ABC-owned contests will be on Bally Sports Oklahoma in the first round of the playoffs. Throughout the entire postseason Thunder games can be found on the radio via WWLS the Sports Animal (98.1FM).
