Notes on 7th/8th Seeds
– If a user selects a play-in winner spot, that player is choosing whichever team will advance to the playoffs and will select that particular playoff seed. Initial bracket team names will show “conference seed number” rather than team name. This will be replaced by the actual team name after the Play-in tournament is over.
East Play-In Tournament:
#1: Cavaliers vs. Nets (Winner becomes the 7th seed; loser battles #2 winner for 8th seed)
#2: Hornets vs. Hawks (Winner battles #1 match-up winner for 8th seed)
West Play-In Tournament:
#1: Clippers vs. Timberwolves (Winner becomes the 7th seed; loser battles #2 winner for 8th seed)
#2: Spurs vs. Pelicans (Winner battles #1 match-up winner for 8th seed)
*Brackets open/close date/time – All NBA Playoffs brackets will open as soon as the playoffs and play-in matchups are set. Users will be able to make picks even before the play-in match-ups are over. Closing times are subject to change and Nitrobetting reserves to extend the deadline but not before the first game of the first match-up is over. Users have a chance to make or change their picks before the deadline.
My Combined Score is the players’ prediction of the final score of the last game of the 2022 NBA Playoffs (or final game of the 2022 NBA Finals). This will be used to determine the first tiebreaker.The closest prediction to the actual combined score will get the higher ranking in the leaderboard. In case a player fails to place a prediction the default score prediction for the player would be zero (0).
