AP – It lasted 174 days, required the usage of more players than any season in history primarily because of the ongoing challenge of playing through a pandemic, and saw playoff-positioning chases go all the way down to the final moments.

Now, move over, regular season.

The NBA’s postseason is finally here.

The Eastern Conference play-in games were set on Sunday.

Brooklyn will play host to Cleveland and Atlanta will entertain Charlotte.

The Nets-Cavs winner goes to the playoffs; the loser plays the Hawks-Hornets winner for the No. 8 seed.
