The NBA was founded in 1946 as the Basketball Association of America (BAA). The league adopted its current name at the start of 1949-1950 season when it merged with the National Basketball League (NBL). The league currently consists of thirty teams, of which twenty-nine are located in the United States and one in Canada. Each team plays 82 games in the regular season. After the regular season, eight teams from each of the league's two conferences qualified for the playoffs. The final two teams in the conference playoffs will play each other in the Conference Final, to determine the conference champion who will play in the NBA Finals.
