And just like that, the NBA restart in the Orlando bubble wraps up its regular season and we’re into the conference championships. The conference finals have started, and we couldn’t be more excited to help fans catch up on the latest basketball news and NBA steaming deals.
The NBA also recently announced two new awards to recognize the best performers during this restart season: the All-Seeding Games Team and the Player of the Seeding Games. Winners will be announced Saturday afternoon after being chosen by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters who have been covering the games on-site at the Walt Disney World Resort.
