The first round of 2021 NBA Playoffs is officially a wrap. We take a look at when the second round is set to kick off.

The 2021 NBA Playoffs is just about finished with the first round and will open the second round on Saturday, June 5. The Brooklyn Nets host the Milwaukee Bucks in the first series of the second round, with Game 1 tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The rest of the second round will take some time to get started. The Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks open their second round series in Philly on Sunday, with Game 1 tip-off set for 1 p.m. The Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns open their second round series in Phoenix on Monday, with Game 1 tip-off set for 10 p.m.

As of Friday morning, that leaves one remaining second round series still to be finalized. The Utah Jazz advanced with a five-game series win over the Memphis Grizzlies and will face either the Los Angeles Clippers or the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks lead the series 3-2 with Game 6 scheduled for 9 p.m. on Friday in Dallas. If that series wraps on Friday, Jazz-Mavericks would likely tip on Monday or Tuesday. If the series requires a Game 7 on Sunday, Jazz vs. the winner would likely start Tuesday or Wednesday.
