The playoffs continue on the NBA hardwood (Game 5 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets) and on the NHL ice (Game 2 between the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Islanders). Meanwhile, a full 15-game schedule in Major League Baseball is highlighted by an ESPN showdown between the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs.
