The second-seeded Phoenix Suns will open their first-round playoff series against the seventh-seeded Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns Arena.

Game 1 is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on Sunday on ABC.

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors in the play-in game on Wednesday, 103-100.

Playoff tickets for Games 1 and 2 of the Phoenix Suns’ Western Conference first-round series went on sale at 11 a.m. Monday morning and were quickly bought up by a fan base that hasn’t had an NBA playoff team in more than a decade.

The upper-level tickets were sold out for the first two playoff games at Phoenix Suns Arena within a half-hour of them going on sale via Ticketmaster. Some reappeared at higher prices on the secondary market after the team released its allotment.

Here’s the full time and TV schedule for the first-round series with home games for the Suns in bold.
