Before the postseason officially began on May 22, the league went through a thrilling play-in tournament, after doing a trial run of a play-in game down in the Orlando bubble. With the play-in tournament in the books, all 16 playoff seeds are now set. In the West, the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies claimed the Nos. 7 and 8 seeds, respectively. In the East, it was the Boston Celtics landing No. 7 and the Washington Wizards claiming No. 8.
The 2020-21 NBA regular season is all wrapped up and so has the play-in tournament, meaning all seedings for the playoffs have been decided. All 16 teams are ready to take action this weekend when the postseason tips off.
In the Western Conference, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers held off Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night to clinch the No. 7 seed in their play-in game. Ja Morant and the No. 9 Memphis Grizzlies, who ousted the San Antonio Spurs from playoff contention, went on to defeat Golden State in Friday’s elimination play-in game to secure the No. 8 seed.
In the East, Jayson Tatum successfully led his Boston Celtics past Bradley Beal, Russell Westbrook and the Washington Wizards, on Tuesday night to secure the No. 7 seed. They’ll move on to play the No. 2 Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs. The Wizards then ended the No. 10 Indiana Pacers’s season, after Indiana advanced past the No. 9 Charlotte Hornets in a dominant first play-in game. The Wizards claim the No. 8 seed and get the top-ranked 76ers in the opening round of the playoffs.
Here’s all the scheduling information you need to know about the play-in tournament. Every game on NBATV, ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC can be streamed via fuboTV (Try for free).
Now, those teams will have to upset the top two seeds in the East and West, respectively, if they want their postseason run to continue. While there are plenty of big names on the teams that qualified through the play-in, they were in that position for a reason and now they will have to up their games in a big way if they want to knock off the likes of the Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets, Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns. In addition, we have a pair of playoff rematches from the bubble as the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat renew their rivalry while Luka Doncic and the Mavericks attempt to upset the Los Angeles Clippers.
There will be no shortage of entertainment on tap this postseason as several title contenders try to end the year with the Larry O’Brien Trophy in their hands. To stay up to date on the postseason schedule here’s a breakdown of when each game will take place over the next month and a half as the NBA continues its journey to crown a champion for the 2020-21 season.
Saturday was heaven for those of us who enjoy sitting on the couch and watching NBA playoff basketball for 12 consecutive hours. All four games were exciting and close, for the most part, as the tone was set in the first game in half of the league’s postseason series.
The best part about the playoffs is that the stars come out in full force. There’s no more minutes limits or holding back — just my best against your best and let’s see what happens. That was certainly the case on Saturday, but while some stars shined, others struggled. Here’s are the results from the first set of Game 1s, along with some winners and losers from the day.
Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving combined to go 11-for-32 from the field in the first half against the Celtics, and the Nets trailed by six heading into the locker room. Then the league’s newest Big Three proved how quickly they can turn things around, going 15-for-26 while outscoring the Celtics by 17 in the second half to cruise to a Game 1 win.
The Nets’ stars also deserve credit on defense, particularly Durant and Harden, who combined for four steals and a block in the second half to help stifle the Celtics attack. It was just a glimpse of how dangerous this team can be when all three of those guys are clicking.
