2021 NBA playoff bracket: Finals results, times, live stream, TV info, series matchups, scores

The 2021 NBA playoffs are a wrap. The Milwaukee Bucks are champions after ousting the Phoenix Suns in six games in the NBA Finals. It marks the franchise’s first title in exactly 50 years. Milwaukee hoisted the Larry O’Brien Trophy after a legendary Finals performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo, where he put up 50 points, 14 rebounds, five blocks and two assists en route to winning Finals MVP. 

After falling behind 2-0 to star the series, Milwaukee went on to win four straight games to topple the Suns, and became just the fifth team in NBA Finals history to win it all after losing the first two games of the series. The last team to do that was the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. 

It’s been one of the most exciting and unpredictable NBA playoff runs in recent memory. Check below to recap all the action throughout the postseason.
