Season and Playoffs in the NBA
In the National Basketball Association, each club plays 82 games throughout the regular season. They have 41 home games and 41 away games. During the NBA season, every team plays every other team at least once.
Each conference’s top eight teams advance to the playoffs. Teams are seeded based on their overall records as well as whether or not they win their division. The strongest squad takes on the weakest team (1 vs. 8) and so on. The teams compete in a best-of-seven series, with the first team to four victories advancing to the playoffs. Therefore, the team with the greatest record receives a home-court advantage, allowing them to play one more game at home.
The regular season of the NBA 2021-22 concluded on Sunday night, with a total of 15 high-intensity matchups. Moreover, the NBA regular season will be followed for the third year in a row by the play-in tournament, which will include six games to decide the seventh and eighth seed participants in both conferences for the NBA 2021-22 Playoffs, which begin on April 16. In the meanwhile, the NBA 2022 Play-in round will begin on April 12.
The regular season’s seventh-placed squad will host the eighth-placed team, with the victor advancing to the first round of the playoffs and facing the second-placed team in a series.
However, the losing team will await the winner of the match between the ninth and tenth-placed teams. In the first round of the playoffs, the victors will face the world’s best club from each conference.
