NBA PLAYOFFS START SATURDAY: HERE’S ENTIRE 1ST ROUND SKED!

By Harris Warner

In the Eastern Conference, the Sixers are the top seed for the first time in 20 years with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons leading the way.

The second-seeded Brooklyn Nets and their star trio of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving are strong contenders, as are two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the third-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.

The Utah Jazz are the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, with the Phoenix Suns second after a breakthrough season with Chris Paul steering the ship. The West is as stacked as ever, with LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers in the seventh spot after winning a play-in game.
