Last saturday (4/14) the NBA playoffs started.


The teams qualified to the playoffs in the Eastern Conference are: Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards.


In the Western Conference the teams qualified are: Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors, Portland Trail Blazers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Utah Jazz, New Orleans Pelicans, San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves.


As everyone knows the 1st of each conference will face the 8th, the 2nd will play against the 7th, the 3rd against the 6th and the 5th will face the 6th.
