The NBA Playoffs
The first round of the NBA playoffs starts today! Who will advance to the second round? We’ll take a look at the matchups and make some predictions.
What is the NBA Playoffs?
The NBA Playoffs are a postseason tournament held each spring in which the top teams from the previous season’s regular season compete for the chance to win the NBA Championship. The playoffs consist of four rounds: the First Round, the Conference Semifinals, the Conference Finals, and the NBA Finals.
How does the NBA Playoffs work?
The National Basketball Association (NBA) playoffs are a best-of-seven elimination tournament held each Spring after the NBA’s regular season to determine the league’s champion for that year. The tournament culminates in the NBA Finals, a best-of-seven series between the conference champions that is played in June. Series between teams are played in a 2–2–1–1–1 format (the team with the better regular season record plays on their home court in Games 1, 2, 5, and 7), with the first two and last two games at the home of each team.
The NBA playoffs were introduced in 1947. Prior to that, the league’s top teams played each other in what was known as the NBA Finals. The first round of the playoffs, which was then called the Eastern Division semifinals, consisted of three teams, with the division winner receiving a bye to the division finals. In 1949, four teams were added to the playoffs, which resulted in a first round that consisted of two series (a best-of-three series and a best-of-five series).
The remaining teams in the playoffs are the Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets, the Portland Trail Blazers, and the Denver Nuggets.
