The Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association is one of two conferences that make up the league, the other being the Western Conference. Like the Western Conference, the Eastern Conference is made up of 15 teams, organized in three divisions.
The divisional and conference alignment were introduced when the NBA realigned its teams into six divisions in 2004. As part of the realignment, the league shifted some teams from the Eastern Conference to the Western Conference. The Boston Celtics and New York Knicks were among the notable Eastern Conference teams that were moved to the Western Conference.
The Western Conference is made up of 15 teams, playing a total of 82 games each. The top eight teams in the conference make the playoffs.
In the first round of the playoffs, the team with the best record plays the team with the eighth-best record, the second-best team plays the seventh-best team, and so on. The winners of each series advance to the next round, until there is only one team left standing: the NBA Champions.
The Mavericks won 122-73 against the Suns, the Clippers won 112-102 against the Pelicans, the Jazz won 125-92 against the Rockets, and the Kings won 106-103 against the Bulls.
