Another unprecedented NBA regular season has come to a close, and now we turn our attention to the postseason and the play-in tournament. After doing a trial run of a play-in game down in the Orlando bubble, the league decided to adopt a play-in tournament to decide the final two seeds in each conference before the playoffs begin. Click here if want to know how the play-in works.

Once the No. 7 and No. 8 seeds are decided in each conference, the playoffs will officially start on May 22, and while there will still be some noticeable changes, like the reduction in fan attendance due to health and safety protocols, there will be no shortage of entertainment as several title contenders try to end the season with the Larry O’Brien trophy in their hands. To stay up to date on the postseason schedule here’s a breakdown of when each game will take place over the next month and a half as the NBA continues its journey to crown a champion for the 2020-21 season.

Every game on NBATV, ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC can be streamed via fuboTV (Try for free).
