NBA Playoffs Bracket 2022

For the third consecutive season, the NBA would continue with a play-in tournament for 7–10 seeds in each conference before introducing the traditional 16-team playoff format.

After the play-in tournament, we have a traditional playoff bracket, with eight teams from both the Eastern and Western Conferences competing in four rounds of seven game series post-season. The opening round matchups are 1-8, 2-7, 3-6 and 4-5. If the upset happens so the NBA doesn’t seed again, the bracket is settled.
