Best Answer

In the playoffs, the schedule goes as follows:

  1. First Round
  2. Western/Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
  3. Western/Eastern Conference Semifinals
  4. NBA Finals

Thus, before the finals, semifinals, and quarterfinals comes the first round. There is no other name for it.

How does the NBA determine who plays in the championship?

The NBA has a total of four rounds (quarterfinal, semifinal, conference final, THE finals) in the playoffs, for each conference (East and West). That means a total of 16 teams (8 in each conference) will be determined by their regular season records to participate in the playoffs. Well after the quarter final and semifinal rounds in the playoffs. 2 teams in each conference play against each other in the conference final or 3rd; the first team to get 4 victories gets to play in the championship round ( 1 team from each conference plays against each other) and the similar guidlines apply to determine the Championship winner.
