At almost this time last year, we were watching the Warriors crush the Cavs in an epic 2017 NBA Finals. With the regular season wrapping up this year already, we’re looking forward to another action-packed postseason basketball. The final rosters are set for April 13, with the 2018 NBA Playoffs officially starting on April 14. Some other key dates to know for the postseason include:
- Conference Semifinals on April 30 or May 1 (but could be moved up to April 28 or 29)
- Conference Finals on May 15 or 16 (but could be moved up to May 13 or 14)
- The Finals on May 31, running as late as June 17
Figuring out who will be going head to head is driving some folks crazy; there are so many different scenarios that could play out, it’s no wonder that NBA fans are trying to understand from every angle. Bleacher Report put it best in their recent Playoff Picture when they said:
“From the San Antonio Spurs clinching their 21st straight trip to the playoffs despite Kawhi Leonard not playing, Russell Westbrook clinching a spot for the Oklahoma City Thunder on the strength of his triple-double or Anthony Davis literally putting the New Orleans Pelicans on his back and dragging them into the postseason, these last few days of the regular season have been amazing.”
Things are starting to become more clear, though. As it stands today, these are our highlighted brackets…
Raptors (1) vs. Wizards (8)
Cavaliers (4) vs. Pacers (5)
Sixers (3) vs. Heat (6)
Celtics (2) vs. Bucks (7)
Rockets (1) vs. Timberwolves (8)
Jazz (4) vs. Pelicans (5)
Blazers (3) vs. Spurs (6)
Warriors (2) vs. Thunder (7)
