The Eastern Conference Playoffs Are All About Grudge Matches

Welcome to The Lab, FiveThirtyEight’s basketball podcast. On Monday’s show (April 23, 2018), Neil and Kyle discuss three tight series in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Toronto, Boston and Cleveland are each tied 2-2 against their lower-seeded opponents — how much trouble are the favored teams in?

The Lab will be back with another episode later this week. In the meantime, keep an eye on FiveThirtyEight’s NBA predictions, which are updated after every game.

Neil Paine was the acting sports editor at FiveThirtyEight.

Kyle Wagner is a former senior editor at FiveThirtyEight.
