The Eastern Conference's first-round playoff matchups are officially set.
Indiana and Miami face each other Friday to close out their respective seeding-game schedules. That meeting could determine which club enters the upcoming playoff matchup as the higher-seeded team.
This marks only the second time since 2011 that two teams will close out the regular season against each other before facing off in the opening round of the playoffs, according to The Associated Press' Tim Reynolds.
The six other Eastern Conference playoff teams are now all locked into their respective seeds.
The full list of first-round matchups is as follows:
|Eastern Conference First-Round Matchups|
|No. 1 Milwaukee Bucks vs. No. 8 Orlando Magic|
|No. 2 Toronto Raptors vs. No. 7 Brooklyn Nets|
|No. 3 Boston Celtics vs. No. 6 Philadelphia 76ers|
|No. 4/5 Indiana Pacers vs. No. 4/5 Miami Heat|
