The NBA playoffs are fast approaching.

The regular season ends April 10 with the top six teams from each conference earning playoff berths. Seventh through 10th place teams will have a chance to earn their place in the playoffs through the Play-In Tournament.

The ninth-place team will host the 10th-place team from their respective conference in a playoff game with the loser going home and the winner remaining alive. The seventh-place team will host the eighth-place team, also in a single game, with the winner claiming the No. 7 seed in the conference.

The losing team will then host the winner of the “9-10 matchup” in a playoff game for the No. 8 seed in the conference.
