Two more first-round playoff series were scheduled Tuesday with the Lakers defeating the Timberwolves and the Hawks defeating the Heat in two 7-8 play-in games. Each team secured the number 7 in their conference. The Lakers meet the No. 2 Grizzlies while the Hawks meet the No. 2 Celtics.

Reminder of how the play-in tournament works: #7 plays against #8 and #9 against #10. The winner of the 7-8 game gets the #7, while the loser plays against the winner of the 9-10 game for the #8.
