Not long after the Denver Nuggets got done beating the Minnesota Timberwolves in game five of their first round playoff series last night, the Phoenix Suns also finished off the LA Clippers in five games to move onto the second round, confirming that the Nuggets and Suns will matchup.

Because the opponent is already set, the NBA released the schedule for that second round series today.

The Suns and Nuggets begin Round 2 on Saturday at Ball Arena in Denver in a 2021 rematch.

Phoenix swept that series, but the Nuggets entered these playoffs as the top seed in the Western Conference led by two-time defending MVP Nikola Jokic.

The start time for Game 1 will depend on the Boston Celtics-Atlanta Hawks series, which heads to Game 6 on Thursday.

If Atlanta forces Game 7, Suns-Nuggets will tip off at 7 p.m.

If the Celtics close out the Hawks in Game 6, game time at Ball Arena will be set for 5:30 p.m.

Game 1 – Saturday, April 29 (Ball Arena) – Time: TBD

Game 2 – Monday, May 1 (Ball Arena) – Time: TBD

Game 3 – Friday, May 5 (Footprint Center) – Time: TBD

Game 4 – Sunday, May 7 (Footprint Center) – Time: TBD

Game 6* – Thursday, May 11 (Footprint Center) – Time: TBD

Game 7* – Sunday, May 14 (Ball Arena) – Time: TBD
