    Playoffs
    The three regular-season divisional winners in each conference will earn a playoff berth and one of the conference's top three playoff seeds based on regular-season record. The remaining five playoff berths for each conference will be based on regular-season records with no regard to divisional alignment.

    Home-court advantage throughout the NBA playoffs will be based solely on regular season record, not playoff seeding; thus, a divisional winner that has a higher playoff seed than an opponent will not necessarily have home-court advantage in the playoff series.
