The NBA Playoffs are an annual best-of-seven elimination tournament held after the National Basketball Association (NBA)’s regular season to determine the league's champion. The top six teams in each conference make the playoffs, while teams seeded 7-10 make the Play-In Tournament to decide seeds 7 and 8. 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 Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy.
