NBA Playoffs Rules
The NBA playoff rules have been slightly altered and it has produced many matches that are exciting to watch. There are six teams in the NBA playoffs, the top three being New York Yankees and the Boston Celtics. The winner of each team goes to the championship round, where the highest rated player will get the honors. The first round will be played at home and will continue until the winner is decided. The first round is currently set up as the winner will get the right to go to the World Series.
There are two different types of playoff seeds. There are wild cards and division champions. A wild card team is a team that does not play against any other team in the league championship series. Division champions are the official seeds and play against all other teams in the playoffs. The championship seeds are given by the NBA and will be the teams that play in the finals.
The most important rule change in the current NBA playoff rules is the inclusion of the homecourt advantage. The home court advantage is a special category that is worth five points to the team that has it. When this happens, a team has the advantage of playing against only one team every time they play. It means that a team can only get the five points if they win their games. The five points come from the change of the possession, when a team wins or loses.
A great example of this is the Los Angeles Lakers with the No. 1 seed. They started the season like many other teams by beating the Philadelphia Warriors in the first round of the playoffs. The Lakers lost in the second round to the Utah Jazz. They then beat the Orlando Magic in the third round, putting them in the top position to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the semi-finals. This was the second straight playoff that the Lakers came out on top, even though the Thunder were one-of-a-kind NBA team and one that was the consensus NBA playoff seed.
The Lakers will be the only team to earn a trip to the NBA Finals after earning the No. 1 seed. However, they cannot be chosen to play the champion team in the Finals as they are tied with the Sacramento Kings for the 2 seeds. If the Lakers make it to the Championship Series, they will have to play the Sacramento Kings again. That means that they will have played two games against the Kings already and the series will be played at home.
As you can see, the rules for the NBA playoff will be different than the conventional NBA rules. The best record in the regular season is still worth one point, regardless of whether you are a No. 1 seed or not. You do not have to earn your seed to be eligible for the playoffs either. Just be the best team during the regular season to increase your chances of reaching the playoffs.
