In case you were under a rock last night, or Damian Lillard’s heroics gave you short-term amnesia, both the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers closed out their first round series — and are now set to meet in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.

The NBA has now released the schedule for the best-of-seven series; the action starts Saturday, April 27 in Toronto, and wraps up no later than Sunday, May 12. That’s when an if-needed Game 7 would take place, also here in Toronto.

Not all tip-off times are not set yet, as we await results of the Western Conference side of the bracket; we also await Canadian broadcast info. Look for updates to the schedule below as we learn more.

And naturally, we’ll have all kinds of preview material in the coming days! Go ahead and clear your calendars now.

The first-round series against Orlando gave Raptors fans something new — namely, a quick and easy victory over an inferior opponent. Philadelphia will be different; sure, the Raptors finished the regular season with pretty big cushion between them and the 76ers, and they won the season series 3-1. But all of those games came before the 76ers added Tobias Harris to create a starting five that may equal Toronto’s, on both ends of the floor.

It promises to be a good series, so let’s tune in starting Saturday!
