The 2021-22 NBA traditional season has come to a shut, and most attention-grabbing one personnel moved up in the standings from where it started the day: the Boston Celtics, who jumped to No. 2 in the East by manner of their victory over the Memphis Grizzlies and the Milwaukee Bucks’ loss to the Cavaliers. 

The play-in match begins on Tuesday. First-round games start on Saturday. 

Reminder on how the play-in match works: No. 7 performs No. 8 and No. 9 performs No. 10. The winner of the 7-8 sport gets the No. 7 seed, while the loser performs the winner of the 9-10 sport for the  No. 8 seed.
