The NBA Playoffs occur at the end of the every NBA season, and the top eight teams in each conference make the playoffs. First place plays eighth place, second place plays seventh place, third place plays sixth place, and fourth place plays fifth place. Each series between two teams lasts four to seven games, depending on how many games each team wins and loses. The team that makes it to the NBA Finals plays the team from the opposite conference. The team that wins the four games in the NBA Finals takes home the trophy.
