While the format for the rest of the 2020 NBA season will be a little different because of COVID-19, the playoffs will be the same: 16 teams — eight in the East and eight in the West — with seven-game series.

Seeding will be determined by the final eight regular season games: The Bucks are 6.5 games in the lead for the 1-seed, but the Heat, Pacers and 76ers are all within two games of each other and will fight for the 4-seed.

Seeding will matter a little less due to the playoffs taking place in Orlando, Florida, without fans — there’s no difference between the 4- and 5-seeds, in other words — but matchups will certainly matter.

As expected, the Bucks are odds-on favorites to come out of the East and make the Finals; DraftKings has them at -165 to do so. The Celtics and Raptors are next in line at 7/1, and the Heat and 76ers at 9/1 fill out the remainder of the single-digit teams.
