NBA play-offs 2022

By Chris Dinsdale

April 12, 2022 - June 19, 2022 - The NBA play-offs, the climax of North America’s National Basketball Association season, get underway.

The NBA play-offs begin with a “Play-in Tournament” as a final chance for teams seeded from 7th to 10th in both the Eastern and Western conferences to battle for the four remaining play-off places. The top seeded teams will have two opportunities to qualify for the play-offs, while the lowest seeds will have to win twice.

The Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat head the conference seeds, with the Suns posting the best regular season record of 64 wins and 18 defeats.

The eight teams in each conference contest the best-of-seven play-off series, before the Eastern and Western champions clash in the NBA Finals to decide the 2021 NBA Championship winner.
