The NBA Returns July 31

A Champion Will Be Named!

On March 11 The 2019-20 NBA season came to a abrupt stop due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The NBA season is set to make it’s return on July 31.

The 2019-20 restart is contingent on an agreement with The Walt Disney Company

The Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida will be used as a single site for a campus for all housing, practices and games for the remainder of the season.

On June 4, the NBA’s Board of Governors approved the plan to return.

A total of 22 teams would return to play this season.

Eastern Conference

  • Milwaukee Bucks
  • Toronto Raptors
  • Boston Celtics
  • Miami Heat
  • Indiana Pacers
  • Philadelphia 76ers
  • Brooklyn Nets
  • Orlando Magic
  • Washington Wizards

Western Conference

  • Los Angeles Lakers
  • LA Clippers
  • Denver Nuggets
  • Utah Jazz
  • Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Houston Rockets
  • Dallas Mavericks
  • Memphis Grizzlies
  • Portland Trail Blazers
  • New Orleans Pelicans
  • Sacramento Kings
  • San Antonio Spurs
  • Phoenix Suns

The eight remaining games each returning team would play before the playoffs begin. The games would be selected from a team’s remaining regular-season matchups.
 

Top seven teams in each conference with the best records  clinch a playoff spot.

The eighth seeds in each conference could come down to a play-in tournament.
 

No play-in tournament would be needed if the team with the eighth-best record is five or more wins ahead of the team with the ninth-best record in the same conference.

The final playoff spot would go to the eighth best record.

If the team with the eighth-best record is four or less of the team with the ninth-best record then that’s when we will have a play in tournament.

Winner takes all for the final spot between those two teams.

The Finals would end no later than Oct. 12.
