What is the NBA playoff schedule?

The NBA playoffs are a best-of-seven elimination tournament annually held after the NBA regular season to determine the league’s champion. The playoffs were first held in 1947, three years after the NBA was founded.

The playoff format has changed several times throughout NBA history. The number of teams qualifying for the playoffs has increased and decreased over time. The playoff bracket is also re-seeded every round so that the team with the best record in each conference plays the team with the worst record in their conference in the first round, regardless of divisional alignment.

The 2021 NBA playoffs will begin on April 18 and will end no later than July 22. The first two rounds of the playoffs are best-of-seven series; all subsequent rounds are best-of-seven series.

What teams are in the NBA playoffs?

The 2021 NBA playoffs are a best-of-seven tournament pitting the top eight teams from each conference—the Western and the Eastern—against each other in order to crown conference champions and, ultimately, an NBA champion.

In the first round, which is also known as the “play-in tournament,” the seventh and eighth seeds in each conference compete in a best-of-two series. The winner of each series earns the right to face the second seed in their respective conference in the first round of the playoffs proper. The remaining first-round matchups pit the third seed against the sixth seed and the fourth seed against the fifth seed in best-of-seven series.

The winners of each first-round series advance to face each other in the conference semifinals. In turn, the winners of those best-of-seven series move on to compete against each other in their respective conference finals. The winners of each conference final square off against one another in the NBA Finals.

The 2021 NBA playoffs began on May 18 and will conclude no later than July 22—meaning that, at most, they will last for approximately two months.
