LeBron James will be aiming to reach a seventh straight NBA Finals
The NBA Playoff bracket was finalised last night with some mouthwatering match-ups scheduled for the first round.
The Boston Celtics secured top seed and home court advantage in the Eastern Conference after beating the Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland lost to Toronto.
But all the attention in the East was on the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat with one team destined to miss out on the post-season.
Ultimately, it was the Heat who missed out with both the Pacers and Bulls winning their final regular season matches.
Meanwhile in the West, most of the final bracket had been finalised before last night's games with the LA Clippers and Utah Jazz the only sides able to swap places but Chris Paul's side held onto the fourth seed with their win over the Sacramento Kings
Kevin Durant and Steph Curry will look to turn it on in the post-season

Gregg Popovich has been to nine Western Conference Finals in the last 18 years
Who are the favourites?
Defending NBA champions Cleveland have been under-par in the regular season but LeBron James has been to the NBA Finals for six consecutive years.
The Golden State Warriors made it clear at the start of the season that the Playoffs and not regular season records was their aim for this season after blowing a 3-1 lead in last year's Finals.
Kevin Durant has returned from injury just in time for the post-season, meaning the Warriors will be firing on all cylinders when they get underway this weekend.
The Boston Celtics are yet to progress past the first round under Brad Stevens but securing home court advantage and the No 1 seed will no doubt will give them extra confidence going into this weekend.
The San Antonio Spurs have reached the Western Conference Finals nine times in the last 18 years and head coach Gregg Popovich has established a winning mentality with Kawhi Leonard leading the charge.
The Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Toronto Raptors and the Washington Wizards will all fancy their chances of causing an upset in the post-season but not many can see past a Cavaliers v Warriors final for the third straight year.
