NBA play-offs 2024

By Chris Dinsdale

April 20, 2024 - June 23, 2024 - The NBA play-offs, the climax of North America’s National Basketball Association season, get underway. The NBA play-offs begin, with the Denver Nuggets, and key player Nikola Jokić, targeting successive titles. The Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder head this year’s conference seeds.

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 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 2024 NBA Championship winner.
