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


The first round of the 2020-21 NBA playoffs is officially complete, and with three rounds left to go, we’ve already seen a number of surprises. The defending champion Los Angeles Lakers were bounced by the Phoenix Suns after losing Anthony Davis to injury, and last season’s runner-up, the Miami Heat, were swept out of the first round by the Milwaukee Bucks. The Los Angeles Clippers nearly shared their fate after falling down 2-0 at home to the Dallas Mavericks, but fought back to win in seven games.

We now move on to the second round, where those Clippers will take on the No. 1 Utah Jazz in what should be an even tougher test. The No. 2 seeded Suns will play against the Denver Nuggets, who have managed to stay afloat even without the injured Jamal Murray. In the East, the Atlanta Hawks take on the East’s top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers, while the Brooklyn Nets, who lost James Harden to an injury early in Game 2, is facing the Milwaukee Bucks.
