2018 NBA Playoffs
Dates April 14–June 17, 2018
Season 2017–18
Teams 16
Defending champions Golden State Warriors

The 2018 NBA Playoffs is the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association's 2017–18 season. The playoffs began on April 14, 2018 and will end with the 2018 NBA Finals sometime in June.

Overview[edit]

Format[edit]

Within each conference, the eight teams with the most wins qualify for the playoffs. The seedings are based on each team's record.

Each conference's bracket is fixed; there is no reseeding. All rounds are best-of-seven series; the team that has four wins advances to the next round. All rounds, including the NBA Finals, are in a 2–2–1–1–1 format. Home court advantage in any round does not necessarily belong to the higher-seeded team, but instead to the team with the better regular season record. If two teams with the same record meet in a round, standard tiebreaker rules are used. The rule for determining home court advantage in the NBA Finals is winning percentage, then head to head record, followed by record vs. opposite conference.

Playoff qualifying[edit]

On March 7, 2018, the Toronto Raptors became the first team to clinch a playoff spot.[1] On March 30, 2018, the Houston Rockets clinched the Western Conference ending a three-year run by the Golden State Warriors as the top seed.[2] The Rockets clinched the best record in the NBA a day later on March 31, 2018.[3] For the first time since the 1996-97 NBA season, two teams played their last game against each other for the 8th and final spot in the playoffs. The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Denver Nuggets 112–106 in overtime to clinch the final playoff seed in the West. This also ended Minnesota's 13-year drought without a playoff appearance having last played in 2003–04 season[4]. For the first time since the 2010–11 NBA season, the Los Angeles Clippers would miss the postseason following a loss to the Denver Nuggets on April 7, 2018.
