NBA playoffs 2023: how to play them
Once the eight qualifiers of each Conference have been defined, the same Playoff format as in recent years is maintained, with four rounds of best-of-seven matches, until the crowning of the champion.
In the First Round, the first of each Conference faces the eighth; the second, with the seventh and so on. Winners advance to the Conference Semifinals, then the Conference Finals, and finally the NBA Finals.
In each series, home field advantage is determined by each team’s regular season win-loss record. In the Finals, Denver will have home court advantage by having the best record in the West and Miami had finished eighth in the East.
