While the Western Conference seeds have been set for a few days, the Eastern Conference matchups were not determined until the final night of the regular season. The Boston Celtics edged out the Cleveland Cavaliers for the No. 1 seed in the East and will take on the Chicago Bulls, who grabbed the last spot. All four matchups in the Western Conference look like they’ll be entertaining especially the Oklahoma City/Houston series which pits the top two MVP candidates against each other – Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Portland, who gave Golden State a run in last year’s postseason, gets another crack at them in the first round. Here is the Game 1 schedule set for this weekend:

Game 1: Saturday, April 15

Indiana at Cleveland, 3:00 p.m. ET, ABC/R

Milwaukee at Toronto, 5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Memphis at San Antonio, 8:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Utah vs. LA Clippers, 10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Game 1: Sunday, April 16

Portland at Golden State, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC/R
