Jimmy Butler and Giannis Antetokounmpo

Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers  

With the series tied at 1-1, this matchup is going to be very interesting as the battle travels to the Staples Center in California.   

Milwaukee Bucks vs Miami Heat  

With the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led side all set to take their revenge from the last playoff series, this could very well be the deciding game of this series if the Bucks emerge victorious over the Heat.  

Denver Nuggets vs Portland Trail Blazers  

With Damian Lillard stamping his authority on the first game, the potential MVP, Nikola Jokic, left no stone unturned in leading his team to a resounding comeback. 

Friday, May 28  

New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks  

With the latest controversy of a Knicks’ fan spitting on Trae Young, the Hawks have already stated their intention to attack New York Knicks mentally as well as physically in the remainder of the series. Could very well turn out to be a mouth-watering spectacle.  

Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks  

If the LA Clippers lose Game 3 against Mavericks in the American Airlines Centre, the road for many of their marquee superstars can be over.  

Saturday, May 29  

Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies  

With Donovan Mitchell’s return to the Utah Jazz roster, the leading team in the 2021 regular season were back to their best in Game 2. But will Grizzlies be able to counter their strategy in Game 3? only time will tell.  

Philadelphia 76ers vs Washington Wizards  

Joel Embiid looks in no mood to surrender against arch rival-Russell Westbrook-led Washington Wizards. This could very well be the end of the latter team from the playoffs or the rise of the ultimate comeback.  

Sunday, May 30 

Brooklyn Nets vs Boston Celtics  

With the Big 3 in Brooklyn Nets finally getting aggressive to accomplish the ultimate goal, Game 4 at TD Garden between the Nets and Celtics could very well be the statement by the away team.  

Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks  

This could very well be the most entertaining series of Round 1 of the 2021 NBA Playoffs, with the stakes being raised so high by both the players as well as by the fans.
