The Bucks lost Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against Orlando Magic. But the Eastern Conference top seeds, spearheaded by reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, roared right back to wrap it up 4-1 by Game 5 and will be hoping for a similar turnaround against Miami Heat.

Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler’s Miami Heat team, who sealed their semis spot with an authoritative 4-0 first-round NBA playoffs series win over Indiana Pacers, on the other hand will be looking at a repeat in the semi-finals.

NBA Western Conference semi-finals

On the western front, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have already made it to the NBA semi-finals after a 4-1 first-round playoffs series win over a tricky Portland Trail Blazers side.

Like the Bucks in the east, Lakers lost their opening game but fought back to win four on a trot to progress.

LeBron James’ LA Lakers are already in the NBA Western Conference semi-finals.

In the NBA semi-finals, the 16-time champions will face either former MVP James Harden’s Houston Rockets or Oklahoma City Thunder. In what’s been a topsy-turvy first-round series between the Rockets and Thunder, the former lead 3-2 after the end of Game 5.

In the other bracket, another team from LA – the Los Angeles Clippers – have already progressed to the NBA semi-finals by the virtue of a 4-2 series win over Dallas Mavericks, where they will face Denver Nuggets.

In an intriguing first-round series against Utah Jazz, the Nuggets, the third seed in the Western Conference standings, fought back from a 3-1 deficit to first level up at 3-3 and won 80-78 in a thrilling Game 7 to make their way to the semis.
