The full 2011 NBA Playoff Schedule will not be finalized until after the final day of the regular season on Wednesday, but we do know when the first game of the four series in the East bracket will be played. All four of those series are already set regardless of what happens Wednesday night, so the NBA went ahead and announced the times and TV information for Game 1 of each of those four matchups.
The Bulls Vs. Pacers will get things started Saturday at 1 p.m. on ESPN, followed by the Heat Vs. 76ers Game 1 at 3:30 p.m. on ABC. Game 1 of the Magic Vs. Hawks series is scheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m. on ESPN, while Game 1 of the much-anticipated Celtics vs. Knicks series will be Sunday at 7 p.m. on TNT.
Here is the complete schedule to date. The rest of the matchups will be announced after Wednesday night's action.
