체재

각 컨퍼런스에서 가장 많은 승리를 거둔 6 개 디비전 우승팀과 10 개 팀이 플레이 오프에 진출했습니다. seedings은 각 팀의 기록을 기반으로; 그러나 디비전 우승자는 기록에 관계없이 4 위 이상이 보장됩니다.

타이 브레이크 절차

시드를 결정하는 타이 브레이커는 다음과 같습니다.

  1. 디비전 리더가 디비전을 이끌지 않는 팀에서 무승부
  2. 일대일 기록
  3. 디비전 기록 (모든 동점 팀이 같은 디비전에있는 경우)
  4. 회의 기록
  5. 기록 대 플레이 오프 팀, 자체 회의
  6. 기록 대 플레이 오프 팀, 기타 회의 (양방향 동점에만 해당)
  7. 포인트 차이 , 모든 게임

두 개 이상의 팀이 동점 인 경우, 타이 브레이커에서 승리 한 팀이 가장 높은 시드를받는 반면 다른 팀은 모든 동점이 해결 될 때까지 첫 번째 단계부터 "재 파손"되었습니다. 3 개의 디비전 우승자는 상위 4 위 안에 자리를 보장 받았기 때문에 디비전 우승자를 결정하기위한 동점은 다른 동점보다 먼저 깨져야했습니다.

The Bulls entered this game without the services of Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, and Kirk Hinrich, but almost blew a 3–1 series lead to the Nets. However, the Bulls dominated the first half, building a 61–44 halftime lead. In the second half, the Nets fought back as they cut the deficit to 4, but they got no closer as the Bulls prevailed with a 99–93 victory. It was the first time that the Bulls had won a Game 7 on the road in franchise history, becoming the 7th NBA road team to do so after leading series 3–1. They were 0–6 in their last 6 road Game 7's. This was also Gerald Wallace's last game as a Net.

The Bulls stunned the Heat in Game 1 with a 93–86 victory. The game was close throughout, with neither team leading by more than 8 points. The Heat entered the fourth quarter with a 62–58 lead and led 86–83 with just over two minutes to play when the Bulls scored the game's final 10 points. After giving up only 37 points in the first half, the Heat's defense allowed the Bulls to score 35 points in the 4th quarter alone. After Marco Bellinelli's game-tying three-pointer knotted the game at 86, Nate Robinson took over, scoring two consecutive shots to put the Bulls up 90–86 with just over 40 seconds left. On the Heat's next two possessions, LeBron James would shoot an airball and miss a long three-pointer, and Nate Robinson made enough free throws to seal the win and help the Bulls steal homecourt advantage.

He also had 30 points, and added 10 rebounds, 10 assists (his ninth career playoff triple double, tying him with Wilt Chamberlain for fourth all-time),[10] and three blocked shots—the first such stat line in a playoff game since Ralph Sampson in Game 5 of the 1986 Western Conference Semifinals.[11]

Golden State led by 16 with 4 minutes to go, when they miss 8 of their last 9 shots, while San Antonio caught fire. The Spurs would come back without Tim Duncan, who had been bothered by a stomach virus and had to be in the locker room for the final 4:31 of regulation. San Antonio finally tied the game on a Danny Green 3-pointer with 20 seconds left. Stephen Curry (who scored 22 points in the 3rd quarter) would have a shot to win the game at the buzzer, but he misses his tightly contested 15-footer so the game heads to OT. Manu Ginobili would have a shot to potentially win the game at the end of the 1st OT but it was off the mark therefore the game goes to a 2nd OT. In the 2nd OT, with the Spurs leading by 3, Ginobili takes an ill-advised 3 with still 12 seconds left on the shot clock and 48 left on the game clock. Curry would score to cut the deficit to 1-point with 32 seconds left. The Spurs would drain the shot clock before Tony Parker missed a contested lay-up, which led to a Warriors fast-break, which was finished off with a reverse lay-up from Kent Bazemore with 3.9 left to give Golden State a sudden 1-point lead. However, Ginobili would make up for his previous misses by hitting the game-winning 3 with 1.2 left to take Game 1.[18]
