USA TODAY Sports

The Miami HEAT don't know who their second round opponent is yet but we now know when they will play their first two home games of the series.

The winner of the Brooklyn Nets vs Chicago Bulls series will earn the right to face the world champion Heat, winners of 41 of their last 43 games (or to put it in perspective, a little more than half of an NBA regular season) beginning Monday. The NBA has now released the schedule for the pair of games that will open the series at the AmericanAirlines Arena.

Game 1 will take place Monday, May 6 at 7:00 PM while Game 2 is 48 hours later on Wednesday, May 8 at 7:00 PM.

Both games will be followed by Game 1 and 2 between the San Antonio Spurs and the winner of the Denver Nuggets vs Golden State Warriors series and they will tip-off at 9:30 PM EST.

All four of these games will be televised by TNT. In the conference semifinals, all games are exclusive national telecasts. Additional scheduling information will be passed along as soon as we get them from the NBA.

UPDATE: The NBA has also released the schedule for Game 3. The full schedule for the second round series as of Saturday afternoon is as follows:

Miami vs. Brooklyn Nets /OR/ Chicago Bulls

Game 1 - Mon May 6: Brooklyn/OR/Chicago at Miami 7:00PM - TNT
