Heat Vs. Celtics Schedule, NBA Playoffs 2011: Highly Anticipated Series To Begin Sunday In Miami

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will meet in the second round of the East bracket of the 2011 NBA Playoffs in perhaps the most highly anticipated conference semifinals in modern NBA history. The Celtics have made the NBA Finals in two of the past three seasons, winning the title in 2008. The Heat, who added two-time reigning MVP LeBron James and perennial All-Star Chris Bosh to 2006 Finals MVP Dwayne Wade in the offseason, have been the league's most discussed, written-about and watched team this season, boasting record ratings during their national TV games.

The series will tip off on Sunday on ABC. Here's the full schedule, with all times Eastern:

Game 1: Sun., May 1 in Miami, 3:30 p.m., ABC
