The 2021 NBA G League playoffs will continue Tuesday night in Orlando, with the No. 6 seed Lakeland Magic taking on the No. 2 seed Santa Cruz Warriors (7 p.m. ET, ESPNU) and the top-seeded Raptors 905 playing the No. 4 seed Delaware Blue Coats (9:15 p.m. ET, ESPNU). In Monday's quarterfinals, Raptors 905 defeated the G League Ignite squad, a team featuring four members of the G League's new Pathway program -- Jonathan Kuminga, Jalen Green, Daishen Nix and Isaiah Todd -- who are all eligible for the 2021 NBA draft.

With NBA evaluators focused on the G League this week during the NBA's hiatus, we looked at the meaning of G League Ignite's early success, the draft picks-to-be who helped themselves most with late flourishes, while also taking a look at some of the former draft picks on NBA assignment who either made the most of their G League experiences or raised questions with their play. The NBA G League playoffs will be completed Thursday afternoon with the championship from Orlando airing at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
