The 2021 NBA Playoffs are moving through the first round and we are starting to see teams advance into the second round. The Milwaukee Bucks rolled through the Miami Heat with a sweep and a few other teams are not far behind.
The biggest news as the first round approaches its conclusion is Anthony Davis’ groin injury. He’s day-to-day and his status could swing the Lakers-Suns series, which is knotted at two as June opens. The Hawks are the most notable lower seed with a lead, but with a few series knotted at two through four games, we could still see some upsets heading into the second round.
The second round is expected to begin with the Nets vs. Bucks on Saturday, June 5th. In the meantime, here’s a look at how the bracket is shaking out for the second round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
