Southeast Division

It appears that the Southeast Division will be the most competitive in the NBA.  Miami (5-1) currently sits atop the division, while Hawks are trailing at 4-1 with the Magic immediately behind them at 4-2.  The Hawks and Magic were afterthoughts before and many people have handed the Heat the NBA title.  If Atlanta’s 100-92 win versus the Heat is any indication of the things to come, things may take a sharp turn very soon

Play-in Match

The NBA 2020-2021 season has several changes, apart from one of them being a shortened 72-game season, another is the new play-in rule. Instead of the traditional 1 – 8 seed making it to the playoffs, the 1 – 6 seed will get a guaranteed seeding in the playoffs while the 7 – 10 seed on both conferences will duke it out for two remaining spots in each conferences.

This means that if the playoffs were to start today, the matchups will be four sets best-of-one between these teams:

  • Boston Celtics (26 – 26) vs Chicago Bulls (21 – 28)
  • New York Knicks (25 – 27) vs Indiana Pacers (23 – 27)
  • Dallas Mavericks (28 – 22) vs Golden State Warriors (24 – 27)
  • Memphis Grizzlies (26 – 23) vs San Antonio Spurs (24 – 25)
