With apologies to the teams that finished Nos. 5-8 in the standings, it’s time for the East playoffs to really get started — and to find out which East team will be the first in the last nine years to reach The Finals without LeBron James. After this round, two franchises will be one step closer, and two teams will have seen their season end in disappointment. https://www.nba.com/playoffs/2019/eastseries5/preview

About Last Night: Nurse face says it all
