The NBA has released its latest schedule update with the Lakers and Nuggets set to play Game 7 at Staples Center Saturday at 10:30 p.m. ET and the 76ers and Celtics to play Game 1 of the Eastern Semifinals 8:00 p.m. ET.

Both games will be broadcast on TNT.

The Nuggets forced a Game 7 by pounding the Lakers 113-96 in Denver, coming back from a 3-1 series deficit. Ty Lawson led the way with 32 points for the Nuggets.

Oklahoma City will play the winner of the Lakers-Nuggets Game 7 on Monday at 9:30 p.m. ET. The Thunder will have gone nine days without playing after sweeping Dallas.

The Sixers advanced by beating the top-seeded Bulls in six games, escaping with a dramatic win in Philadelphia. The Celtics beat the Hawks in six, finishing them off in a close game as well. The Sixers took the season series over Boston 2-1.
