2020 NBA Playoff Format

They want to make sure that the best teams make it to the playoffs, but they also want to give the fans what they want to see. With so many different playoff formats out there, it can be hard to choose which one is right for the NBA.

16 teams will qualify for the playoffs

This year, the NBA playoff format will feature 16 teams instead of the usual 8. The change is due to the Coronavirus pandemic, which forced the league to suspend the regular season in March and finish the season with a resumption of play in July at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The top 6 seeds in each conference will receive a bye to the second round of the playoffs. The remaining teams will play each other in a best-of-seven first-round series, with the winners advancing to face the top seeds.

The NBA Finals will follow the same format, with the two conference champions facing off in a best-of-seven series.

2020 NBA Playoff Predictions

It’s that time of the year again where the NBA regular season is coming to an end and the playoff race is heating up. This year, there are a few teams that stand out as potential contenders for the NBA title. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

The Los Angeles Lakers are the favorites to win the title

The Los Angeles Lakers are the favorites to win the 2020 NBA Championship, according to the latest odds from Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. The Lakers are +275 (bet $100 to win $275) to win it all, followed by the Milwaukee Bucks at +400, the Los Angeles Clippers at +600, the Houston Rockets at +700 and the Philadelphia 76ers at +800.

The defending champion Toronto Raptors are not far behind at +1100 (bet $100 to win $1,100), with the Golden State Warriors rounding out the top six at +1200.

The Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Clippers are also contenders

In addition to the Lakers and the Bucks, the Los Angeles Clippers are also contenders for the 2020 NBA championship. Led by Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the Clippers have been one of the best teams in the league all season long. They finished the regular season with a record of 49-23, good for second place in the Western Conference.

The Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors are dark horses

While the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors may not be the clear-cut favourites to win the 2020 NBA Finals, they are certainly two teams that could make some noise in the playoffs.

The Rockets are currently the 4th seed in the Western Conference, but they have been red-hot lately, winning 8 of their last 10 games. They have a dynamic backcourt duo in James Harden and Russell Westbrook that can score with the best of them, and they also have a strong supporting cast. If they can stay healthy and continue to play well, they could be a tough out in the playoffs.

The Warriors, on the other hand, are only the 8th seed in the Western Conference but they are just 2 games behind the Rockets for 4th place. They have struggled with injuries all season long but when they are healthy, they are still a very dangerous team. They have a core of accomplished veterans that know what it takes to win in the playoffs, so don’t count them out just yet.
