NBA Playoffs 2021 – Who Will Take It All?
Last year, in the “Bubble”, the Los Angeles Lakers won the championship which you can review here. However, this year, the Brooklyn Nets are favored to win the Eastern Conference and to take the trophy for NBA Playoffs 2021.
NBA Play-In Tournament
There will be a total of six games involving eight teams as part of the play-in tournament. The regular season had been cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, the completion of a full 82-game schedule wasn’t possible.
Therefore, the NBA came up with the “play-in” idea to give a team, outside the top eight, a chance at making it to the playoffs. For more on the play-in tournament click here.
