The No. 1 seed Philadelphia 76ers finished the regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference, and they will get their playoff run started against the Washington Wizards in the first round on Sunday, May 23rd. Philadelphia made the playoffs for the fourth straight season but won just two playoff series in that span. The Wizards are making a return to the playoffs after a two-year absence with Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal. They have not made a conference finals since the 1970s and while Westbrook and Beal are stars, it seems unlikely they will end that drought.
