Playoffs Rumors

In addition to the post-Thanksgiving tournament, the NBA is making a case to teams and the union for a play-in for the seventh and eighth conference playoff seeds, and a reseeding of teams in the semifinal round based on regular-season records. “I think that’s interesting and has merit,” Kerr said of reseeding teams in the semifinal round. “If your goal is to get the best two teams in the Finals and it’s pretty clear cut then, yeah, I’d be interested in that.”
