The Regular Season is after 82 games to end and two of the four playoff matchups per conference are already fixed. The remaining duels are only fixed through the play-in tournament during the week. Bulls provides a first overview.

NBA Playoffs: The Matchups in the Eastern Conference

In the east, Miami was already for more than 1-seed and is waiting for his opponent now. The same applies to the Celtics, which in contrast to Milwaukee and Philly at the season finale does not spare the whole chapel and thus run as a 2-seed danger, to do it with the dreaded Nets to do. But these must first prevail in the play-in.

(1) Miami Heat vs. Nets / Cavs / Hawks / Hornets

(2) Boston Celtics vs. Nets / Hawks

(3) Milwaukee Bucks vs. (6) Chicago Bulls

The reigning champion is as a clear favorite in this matchup. The Bucks have decided all duels in the regular season for themselves, Chicago goes among other things through the violation of Lonzo Ball struck into the PostSeason. However, Bulls may nevertheless be happy about the first PostSeason participation since 2017.

(4) Philadelphia 76ers vs. (5) Toronto Raptors

Joel Embiid and James Harden get it with an extremely unpleasant opponent to do – and will sometimes have to do without steriful matisse thybulls. The Guard is not vaccinated and therefore can not incur in the away games in Toronto.

Eastern Conference – Play-In-Tournament

(7) Brooklyn Nets vs. (8) Cleveland Cavaliers

The Brooklyn Nets actually went as one of the top favorites in the season, but injuries, the vaccination status of Kyrie Irving and the drama around James Harden whirled the season of Nets confused. Now Brooklyn must fight the playoff ticket in the play-in tournament. The first chance is there against the Cavs, the winner of the duel gets the 7-seed.

NBA Playoffs: The Matchups in the Western Conference

In the west, both the 1- and the 2-SEED were already fixed. Phoenix has powdered its own franchise record on victories and is the only 60+ victory team of this season, Memphis has at least set his record. Both are waiting for those who will prevail in the play-in.

(1) Phoenix Suns vs. Wolves / Clippers / Pelicans / Spurs

(2) Memphis Grizzlies vs. Winner from Timberwolves / Clippers

(3) Golden State Warriors vs. (6) Denver Nuggets

Although the Warriors have home in the first round, but get it with a team that causes them in Regular Season problems and won twice in Golden State. Do the rather little dolls get the MVP favorite Nikola Jokic? And get this support from Jamal Murray? Even at Stephen Curry is currently uncertain whether it can participate from the beginning.

10.3.2022 Nuggets Warriors 102: 113

(4) Dallas Mavericks vs. (5) Utah Jazz

The MAVs received a team with the Jazz, which probably has probably not the best answer to Luka Doncic and left no fabricated impression over the past few weeks. Behind his health is currently a pretty big question mark, after injuring the season finale. We fit in time?

(7) Minnesota Timberwolves vs. (8) L.a. Clippers

(9) New Orleans Pelicans vs. (10) San Antonio Spurs
