How does the NBA Playoff bracket work?
The NBA Play-In Tournament will be held prior to each conference’s 16-team playoffs.
Following the Play-In Tournament, each conference’s eight teams compete in four seven-game series. 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, and 4-5 have opponents in the first round. Despite a few surprise results, the NBA tournament is still going on.
The Play-In Tournament gives the seventh and eighth seeds in each conference two chances to make the postseason. To advance, the ninth and tenth seeds in each conference must win two straight games.
The seventh-seeded team from each conference meets its counterpart from the opposite conference in a best-of-seven playoff. The winner of #9 vs. #10 will face the loser of #7-8 in the final round, with the winner obtaining the #8 seed.
