After a full NBA regular season, basketball shifts to the postseason, when the stakes are raised and every possession counts. Each conference sends eight teams total, with their record determining their playoff seed. The NBA team with the best regular season gets the "#1 seed," while the team with the worst record is the "8 seed." The #1 seed plays the #8 seed, the #2 seed plays the #7, the #3 plays the #6, and the #4 and #5 all play in a best of five series. At the end of the first round, the seeds are again re-arranged, with the team with the best record again playing the team with the worst record that survived the first round, and so on, this time in a seven-game series. After the second round, there are just two teams remaining in the East and the West, and they face off in the NBA Conference Finals game. And once the NBA Conference playoffs are decided, it’s on to the NBA Finals.
The NBA Finals are the culmination of a whole season of NBA basketball and the final four-to-seven games are the most competitive basketball you will see. The best NBA team in each conference goes at it to take home the Larry O'Brien Trophy, and the intensity of an NBA Finals game is off the charts. All of the grueling battles boil down to one final series, and it’s time to put up or shut up; in some cases, players’ performances in the NBA Finals will define their careers. Ticket prices for the NBA Finals can get pretty expensive, but if you can find a good deal of tickets through Ticket Liquidator.
