Today marks the start of 2018 NBA playoffs and 16 teams will be competing against one another for a spot in the SemiFinals and then the Conference Finals with the best-of-seven playoff scheduled to begin on May 31.

Whether you’re a fan of the Rockets or the Raptors we’ve got you covered.
Here is our quick and easy guide for how to watch NBA playoffs online from anywhere in the world. Whether you’re in the US, UK, Canada, Japan, Australia or anywhere else with an Internet connection, we’ll help you tune in to all the action this postseason.
The 2015-2016 season was a treat for NBA fans. In the final weeks alone, we marveled at the Warriors breaking the all-time regular season win record, held our breath through countless playoff nail-biters, and lost our minds when LeBron “King” James reminded us why he got his particular nickname. I’ve been watching the NBA for several decades and can’t remember a more thrilling (and, as a Bay Area guy, saddening) end to a season.
But it wasn’t an especially good year for the best basketball video game series on the planet. While NBA 2K16 My Career review still ranked head and shoulders above the competition, the franchise had a rare misfire thanks to a dud of a Career mode and some uncharacteristic technical woes. What would it do in the offseason to improve?
What any superstar would do, naturally: practice, practice, practice. And that’s exactly what you’ll be doing in the gorgeous, grinding “NBA 2K17.” Righting several mistakes from last year’s game, this is a stunning, robust basketball sim that smooths out rough spots, is replete with modes, and delivers a painstakingly authentic experience from start to finish.
If hockey movies have taught us anything, it’s that our favorite game is incredibly fast and shockingly violent, that goaltenders are high strung targets who get little help from their defense, and that creative cussing is a skill set as vital as skating and stickhandling.
No wonder we love watching these things, eh?
They’ve also introduced us to a plethora of rich and colorful characters, some of whom seem to play the game pretty well. So that got us to thinking: Which of these guys would make up the best hockey movies team?
We pored over our favorite films and narrowed it down to our list of celluloid First-Team All-Stars. The rules? Only fictional players were eligible (so, no Rocket Richard or Jim Craig). And to spread out the love, we limited our favorite films to four representatives, max.
And just because we felt like it, we expanded our list to include the best cinematic coach, GM and broadcaster.
