2021 NBA playoff bracket: Second-round dates, times, live stream, TV info, updating scores, results

Sport

The NBA playoffs are rolling along, and the first round is almost entirely in the books as the series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks is the only one that has yet to be completed. There’s already been several surprises in these playoffs, including the defending Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat getting swept in the first round by the Milwaukee Bucks. Also, LeBron James suffered the first opening-round loss of his entire NBA career, as the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers fell to the upstart Phoenix Suns in six games. That means a new champion will be crowned at the end of the season. 

After sweeping the Heat, the Milwaukee Bucks will square off against Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving and the high-powered Brooklyn Nets, while the Suns will take on MVP favorite Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets. Also, the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks will go at it, and the Utah Jazz will take on the victor of the series between the Clippers and Mavericks.
