The NBA Playoffs continue with three Game 5's taking center stage. Find out where to watch these matchups as we bring you television schedules for all games as the NBA Playoffs roll along. Here are the times and matchups for Wednesday. 

First up: the New York Knicks vs. Boston Celtics at 7 p.m. ET
Watch Live: TNT 

This series is 3-1 in favor of the Knicks. J.R. Smith is back in action and as he regrets stupidly committing a Flagrant 2 on Jason Terry. Smith said, had he played, the Knicks would have clinched in four games and he would have been playing golf instead of fielding questions from journalists. 

The Knicks needed extra help from Raymond Felton who scored 27 points as no other player stepped up to help Carmelo Anthony. The game eventually went into overtime, but the Celtics pulled away with the win. 

At 8 p.m. ET, watch the Atlanta Hawks vs. Indiana Pacers in their Game 5 of a tied series. The Pacers are at home where they went 2-0 in the first two games of the series. The Hawks were unable to even match the Pacers intensity when playing in Indiana. However, rolls reversed once the Hawks landed in their nest. They beat up on the Pacers and made it an interesting series. 

Now, it seems like anything can happen. The Hawks will try to steal one at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, similar to how the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Los Angeles Clippers on the  road.

The final game on Wednesday's schedule: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets as the NBA Playoff action wraps up for the evening. Similar to the Knicks, the Thunder can wrap up their series. Similar to the Knicks, the Thunder dropped their Game 4 and couldn't finish things off in a sweep. 

However, the Thunder weren't lacking a key player because of a suspension, but because Russell Westbrook was injured. This is forcing Kevin Durant to step his game up and compensate for what offense the Thunder would have received from their All-Star point guard.  

You can watch this game on TNT immediately following the Knicks vs. Celtics game. 

Check out the standings following the conclusion of these games as we give you a series by series play out of what has occurred in the NBA Playoffs.
