Round 2 of the NBA postseason is finally here. Each playoff series has its own unique set of storylines that will surely make for an interesting week in the NBA. 

Out in the West, the four teams left have yet to get their hands on each other. This is the most star-packed, high-profile group of teams in recent years to make the second round. There are the two old-timers, the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs, and there are the two new guys, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers.

However these series turn out, the Western Conference Finals will be fantastic.

In the East, both series have played at least one game. The Eastern Conference is not as high profile as the West, but both series will be a joy to watch if you're a fan of NBA basketball.

The Miami Heat will have their hands tied against a young Indiana Pacers team that is not afraid of them. The Boston Celtics just need to stay healthy. If they can, they should be able to hold off the young, upstart Philadelphia 76ers.

Here is a glimpse into this week of NBA postseason basketball.
