The Brooklyn Nets defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to clinch the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference. Here is the team’s full playoff schedule against the Boston Celtics.
The Brooklyn Nets had the seventh-best record in the entire Eastern Conference, but that did not guarantee them a NBA Playoffs spot. Instead, they had to compete in the play-in tournament. To clinch a playoff berth as early as possible, the team had to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.
Brooklyn did just that, as they held on for a 115-108 win over Cleveland behind a 34-point, 12-assist double-double by Kyrie Irving. With that, the Nets clinched the No. 7 seed and will now move on to face the Boston Celtics in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
For those Nets fans wondering what the full playoff schedule for the team is, we have you covered.
