NBA Playoffs Schedule 2021: Dates, times, odds, where to watch

0 Comments

Dramatic upsets, game-winning shots, and the defending NBA champions bounced — we will crown a new NBA champion this season.

The NBA postseason is in full swing and there is no bubble this time around: It’s traditional seven-game series and teams traveling from city to city — and a lot of arenas full of fans. The league hopes that with nearly 80% of players vaccinated the coronavirus will not disrupt the NBA postseason the way it did the first half of the season itself.

Here is the 2021 NBA playoffs schedule (all times are Eastern), with odds courtesy our partner PointsBet:
