2003 NBA playoffs
Season 2002–03
Teams 16
Champions San Antonio Spurs (2nd title)
Runners-up New Jersey Nets (2nd finals appearance)
Semifinalists

The 2003 NBA Playoffs was the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association's 2002–03 season. The tournament concluded with the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs defeating the Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Nets 4 games to 2 in the NBA Finals. Tim Duncan was named NBA Finals MVP for the second time.

This postseason was notable for being the first time all series were conducted in a best-of-7 format. It was also the only time in playoff history that no team was swept in a first-round series. From 19842002, the first-round series was best-of-5.

This is the first time that the NBA Playoffs carried more games on cable television than regular broadcast television. This also marks the debut for the NBA Playoffs to be aired on NBA TV, and the return broadcast on ESPN & ABC after the NBA departed from NBC and TBS.

The Detroit Pistons advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since the Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars-led team were swept by the Chicago Bulls in 1991, ending the Pistons' quest for a third consecutive title. The Pistons would go on to appear in six consecutive Eastern Conference Finals through 2008, the most consecutive appearances for any Eastern Conference team since the Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics (1956–69).

The Dallas Mavericks also ended a long conference finals drought by making it there for the first time since 1988.

As of 2016, the 49-win Nets are the most recent NBA Finals participant to win fewer than 50 games in a 82-game season.

The Boston Celtics were swept in a postseason series for the first time since 1983.
