NBA Playoffs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1368 words)
The NBA Playoffs are four rounds of competition between sixteen teams in the Eastern Conference and Western Conferences (called Divisions, pre-1970) of the National Basketball Association.
Each round is a best-of-seven series; the NBA finals are played in a 2-3-2 format, meaning the first two and final two games (if necessary) are played at the court of the team possessing home court advantage, and all other rounds are played in a 2-2-1-1-1 format.
In the first season, 1946-1947, of the NBA (called the BAA until the merger with the NBL in 1949) the top three teams from the Eastern and Western divisions were invited to the playoffs.
