With the end of the regular season comes the playoffs, where teams hope to win it all and get the trophy and ring.

The first-seeded Golden State Warriors are hoping for that chance to get to the Finals, where the Eastern Conference first-seeded Atlanta Hawks are hoping to get there as well.

Last year’s Champion, the Spurs, are looking to defend their title, and last year’s Eastern Conference champions, the Heat, won’t be in the playoffs after losing LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Spurs and the Clippers are the hottest teams in the NBA, winning nine of their last ten games.

Some teams that were in last year’s playoffs will not be in this year’s playoffs, including the Miami Heat, Charlotte Hornets, Indiana Pacers, and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

There are also some teams that are new to the playoffs this year– the Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics, and the New Orleans Pelicans.

The first round of the playoffs begin Saturday, April 18. The first game of the Finals will start June 4.
