No bubble. The Play-In Tournament is over. It’s time for the 2021 NBA Playoffs, and we have the schedule plus all the other information you need.

The NBA postseason is back — and back to its traditional format with seven-game series and teams traveling from city to city. The league hopes that with nearly 80% of players vaccinated the coronavirus will not disrupt the NBA postseason the way it did the first half of the season itself.
