The 2021 NBA Playoffs open the second round on Saturday when the Nets and Bucks tip off in Brooklyn. The game tips at 7:30 p.m. ET and from there we could have a second round series tipping off each day.

The first round is still wrapping up as of Friday, June 4, with the Clippers and Mavericks playing at least one more game in their series. The Mavericks lead the series 3-2 and host Game 6 on Friday night. The winner of that series advances to face the Jazz in the second round.

The NBA has not announced the complete television schedule for the second round, and in fact has not even announced a full list of game dates. Once Clippers-Mavericks is a wrap, we’ll get a full list of dates and times for at leas the first four games of each second round series. The remaining three for each series are if necessary and the schedule will be adjusted based on which of those games end up getting played.

The second round will air on ABC, ESPN, and TNT. If you’re unable to watch the games on TV, you have the option to live stream. You can stream games airing on TNT on Watch TNT or via their mobile app and the ESPN and ABC broadcasts via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. All streaming options will require a cable log-in, however. If you don’t have a cable log-in, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the games.

We’ll update this with more schedule information as the league unveils it.
