2022 WNBA playoffs: Scores, bracket, schedule, TV channel, watch on-line, begin occasions with Recreation 3s on Sunday

The 2022 WNBA playoffs returned on Wednesday with a pair of Recreation 2s — one thrilling, the opposite not a lot. Within the second recreation of the doubleheader, the Las Vegas Aces squeaked previous the Seattle Storm, 78-73, to even their semi-final sequence at 1-1. Previous to that recreation, the Chicago Sky tied their sequence with Connecticut Solar at 1-1 as properly, cruising to an 85-77 victory that was not as aggressive as the ultimate rating signifies. 

One other new playoff format has debuted this 12 months, because the league has scrapped the first- and second-round byes in favor of a regular three-round bracket format. The primary spherical was best-of-three, and the semifinals and Finals might be best-of-five. The semifinals and Finals will use a regular 2-2-1 format, with the upper seed internet hosting Video games 1, 2 and 5, if mandatory, and the decrease seed internet hosting Video games 3 and 4, if mandatory.
