Cavs Playoff Schedule

Here's everything you need to know about Cleveland's playoff schedule during the 2022 NBA postseason.

Are the Cavs in the Playoffs?

No, the Cavaliers are not officially in the NBA Playoffs yet. They have clinched a berth in the NBA Play-In Tournament, which means they'll need to fight for the chance to make the first round.

What Seed Are the Cavaliers?

Cleveland lost to the Brooklyn Nets in the 7 vs. 8 matchup on Tuesday, meaning the highest seed they can qualify for the playoffs is No. 8.

Since the Cavs lost on Tuesday, they can no longer be the No. 7 seed in the east. If they defeat the Atlanta Hawks in the final play-in game, then they'd become the No. 8 for the first round. That would set up a series with the No. 1 Miami Heat.

The NBA Playoffs have not started yet. The NBA Play-In Tournament is set to take place April 12-15 ahead of the start of the first round on April 16. Cleveland needs to secure a spot in the playoffs by advancing through the play-in tourney.
