Each season, the best teams from the Eastern and Western Conferences compete in the playoffs to determine who will make it to the NBA Finals.

The NBA Finals are a best-of-seven series, meaning the first team to win four games is crowned the champion. The first team to win four games is declared the winner regardless of the number of losses suffered. The series is usually played in a 2-2-1-1-1 format, which means the first two games are played at the home court of the team with the better regular-season record. The next two games are played at the home court of the other team. The fifth, sixth, and seventh games, if necessary, are played at the home court of the team with the better regular-season record.
