The Kentucky Wildcats had more players on the NBA opening-day rosters than any other school to start this season. So to no surprise, the Wildcats lead the way with 13 former players in the 2020 NBA Playoffs, which are as follows:

Of the 13 Wildcats on NBA restart rosters, UK head coach John Calipari has coached 12 of them.

The playoffs begin today with four games, including Jamal Murray and the Nuggets taking on the Utah Jazz at 1:30 pm on ESPN. All games will be televised by ABC, ESPN, TNT or NBATV.

Also in action today are Enes Kanter and the Celtics taking on the 76ers at 6:30 pm, while Patrick Patterson and the Clippers take on Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and the Mavericks at 9 pm. It’s worth noting that Willie Cauley-Stein helped the Mavericks to the playoffs but opted out of the NBA restart because of the birth of a child.
