Best Answer

The top 8 teams of the Eastern Conference and the top 8 teams of the Western Conference will compete in a best of 7 series until the last 2 teams in each conference are left to battle for the conference finals. The two conference finals winners will now compete for the NBA finals.

The team with the most number of wins in the regular season gains the home court advantage over the opposing team.

In bracketing, the first seed battles the 8th seed; the 2nd seed battles the 7th seed; the 3rd seed battles the 6th seed and also goes with the 4th and 5th seed.

The winners will advance to the 2nd round then the finals.
