Takeaways from Each Eastern Conference 2nd-Round Team

Three fourth-quarter buzzer-beaters and nearly one more highlighted an intriguing pair of Eastern Conference semifinal series this year.

Both matchups ended with the higher-seeded teams (the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers) winning in six games, but not without a fight from the lower seeds. Bradley Beal paced the Washington Wizards’ three-point brigade and Jimmy Butler led a sometimes dangerous Chicago Bulls team.
