NBA Playoff Schedule, Mavericks Vs. Blazers: Dallas Opens Series Saturday

The Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers will match up in the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs, with Game 1 tipping off on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. on ESPN. The series figures to be a close one, with both teams possessing some great talent but huge question marks down the rotation. Unsurprisingly, none of the first four games in the series are scheduled to be broadcast on the less-than-fully-available NBA TV.

Here's the series schedule:

Game 1: Sat., April 16 in Dallas, 9:30 p.m., ESPN
Game 2: Tue., April 19 in Dallas, 9:30 p.m., TNT
Game 3: Thu., April 21 in Portland, 10:30 p.m., TNT
Game 4:  Sat., April 23 in Portland, 5 p.m., TNT
Game 5: Mon., April 25 in Dallas, TBD
Game 6: Thu., April 28 in Portland, TBD
Game 7: Sat., April 30 in Dallas, TBD, TNT
