2011 NBA Playoffs: Bulls Second Round Schedule

The Bulls are off until Monday when they'll begin their second round series against either the Orlando Magic or the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks currently lead that series three games to two, and can close the Magic out in a game at Atlanta Thursday night (6:30 p.m. CDT, NBA-TV). If there's a Game 7 needed in that series, it would be Saturday at Orlando.

So the Bulls wait -- and get some much needed rest for Derrick Rose and others who got banged up in the tough series against the Pacers.

No game times have yet been set, but here are the dates and locations for the second-round series. Hopefully, the NBA will see fit to put the Bulls in prime time, instead of the early-afternoon Saturday games they had twice against the Pacers.
