Here Is Your 2015 NBA Playoffs Schedule And First-Round Match-Ups

The 2015 NBA Playoffs are set after a whirlwind final night of regular season action. The Pelicans upset the Spurs in New Orleans, 108-103, which saw San Antonio drop from a possible No. 2 seed to No. 6 and catapulted New Orleans into the playoffs as the No. 8 seed in the West. No Russ though [sad emoticon].

Then there was Brooklyn squeezing into the final spot in the Eastern Conference after the Pacers lost to the Grizzlies. Paul George’s comeback doesn’t include any playoff heroics against Indiana’s first-round opponent last year.

Plus, Houston earned the No. 2 spot in the West with a blowout win over the Jazz; The Bulls captured the No. 3 seed with a six-point victory over Atlanta; the Grizzlies ended Indiana’s chances of making the playoffs and moved into a first-round date with Portland, where they’ll have home-court advantage (divisions are redundant, so lets do away with them soon).

First-round schedule for every series below, and make sure to stay tuned for all our preview coverage over the next two days.
