While the regular season is a great appetizer for NBA fans, it is the NBA Playoffs that everyone who loves the game is waiting for. Eight teams from both the Eastern and Western conferences enter the four round tournament, with dreams of being crowned NBA Champion.
The NBA Playoffs bring a new intensity to the basketball court unlike what is seen through the 82-game regular season schedule. In major markets like Los Angeles, Boston, New York and Detroit, demand for tickets can be high all year long, and the playoffs only emphasize that.

When conference rivals meet up, the intensity through the fan bases is turned up a notch. Some of the rivalries that strike a nerve fans include Celtics – Pistons, Bull – Pacers, Lakers – Spurs and Lakers – Suns.
The NBA Playoffs are culminated with the best-of-seven NBA Finals. Recent champions include the Boston Celtics (2008), San Antonio Spurs (1999, 2003, 2005, 2007), Miami Heat (2006) and Los Angeles Lakers (2000, 2001, 2002).
