The NBA playoffs are set and the Phoenix Suns will play the New Orleans Pelicans in the first round.

The first two home games at Footprint Center have been scheduled for Sunday and Tuesday, with respective tip times of 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. MST.

Here’s a look at the full series schedule.

Game 1: Sunday, April 17 at 6 p.m. MST (Bally Sports Arizona/TNT) — Footprint Center

As the top seed in the NBA, Phoenix hosts the first two playoff games of each series. The Pelicans reached the playoffs after besting the Los Angeles Clippers in the final play-in game on Friday.

The Clippers fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night, with the T-Wolves securing the No. 7 seed and a matchup against the No. 2 seed Memphis Grizzlies.

As for the Suns’ home games, Phoenix fans who do not purchase tickets in the arena can still celebrate at Rally Beach, which debuted in the regular-season finale.

Tickets will be $10 per person and are on sale here.

At Rally Beach, fans will be in a 12,000 square-foot area that features a 20-foot LED screen, food trucks, drink stations and rotating DJs — plus seven tons of sand.

The area is a ticketed fan zone that will have limited capacity, and Rally Beach tickets do not allow fans inside Footprint Center.

Fans can bring in one sealed water bottle each, but Rally Beach is a no-bag zone.

Rally Beach is ADA accessible.
