Take a deep breath. After one of the most insane finishes to an NBA season in recent memory, the playoff matchups are finally set.

A grueling season has come down to just 16 teams still vying for a shot at the NBA championship. How each franchise got to this point, however, is completely different. While the Golden State Warriors sailed through as a No. 1 seed, the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers shot up the standings just before the start of the postseason.

That left the San Antonio Spurs—the 2014 champions—dropping to the No. 6 seed in the West. As the Clippers’ reward for moving into the third slot, they now get to face the Spurs in the opening round. Both will battle to continue into the second round with either the Houston Rockets or Dallas Mavericks awaiting them.

Round-by-Round Dates

April 18: 2015 NBA Playoffs begin

May 4 or 5: Conference Semifinals begin (possible move-up to May 2 or 3)

May 19 or 20: Conference Finals begin (possible move-up to May 17 or 18)

June 4: The Finals begin (no move-up)

The championship window is closing. That’s a statement the Spurs have heard for years now with their aging superstars. It’s also one Chris Paul is starting to deal with as his playoff misfortune continues.
