The 2021 NBA Playoffs are just a few weeks away, and while the playoff fields are hardly set in stone for either conference, most teams only have 10 or so games remaining.
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics
Aside from the obvious, longstanding playoff history between these two teams, there’s also very recent history to consider.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat
Like the 76ers, the Bucks would be hoping to exact some revenge on a weaker version of the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year.
Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers
Even without taking last year’s conference finals into account, there’s still recent playoff history between these two teams.
