NBA Playoff Picture: Who's playin' play-in tournament, E-W Teams

NBA postseason 2021 matchups: Lakers v Warriors in play-in tournament; Clippers-Mavericks, Heat-Bucks rematches. 

The 2020-21 NBA regular season, shortened to 72 games, is in the books. Next up: The play-in tournament, which begins on Tuesday, May 18, followed by the first round of the playoffs on Saturday, May 22. 

A quick reminder on the NBA's new play-in format: The top six seeds in each conference are in, with the final two seeds up for grabs via the new play-in tournament. In each conference, No. 7 will play No. 8 with the winner getting the No. 7 seed. The loser will then play the winner of 9 vs. 10 for the No. 8 seed.
