In sports, it’s hard to find something more riveting than a Game 7. The NBA gave us two to enjoy on Sunday, and both didn’t disappoint. 

Up first, the Portland Trail Blazers survived an absolute thriller against the Denver Nuggets to pick up a 100-96 victory and advance to the Western Conference finals where they will meet the Golden State Warriors. Portland received contributions up and down the lineup, but it was CJ McCollum who shined the brightest as he poured in a game-high 37 points to lead his team to victory. Game 1 of the Western Conference is Tuesday at Oracle.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors followed with a thrilling Game 7 of their own. Toronto pulled out a wild 92-90 win, thanks to Kawhi Leonard’s buzzer-beater, which propelled his team to a berth in the Eastern Conference finals where they will meet the No. 1 Milwaukee Bucks. Game 1 is Wednesday at Milwaukee.

Below is a look at the NBA playoff bracket and the complete schedule for second-round games, along with viewing information.
