Schedule & NBL Basketball Playoffs


The regular season for the league involves 28 games between the 10 teams involved: Adelaide 36ers, Brisbane Bullets, Cairns Taipans, Illawarra Hawks, Melbourne United, New Zealand Breakers, Perth Wildcats, South East Melbourne Phoenix, Sydney Kings and Tasmania JackJumpers.

The top six teams advance into the play-offs, with the top two finishers moving directly into the semi-finals.

In the qualifiers, 3rd plays 4th in the seeding match for a place in the semi-final and 5th plays 6th in an eliminator. 

The winner of the eliminator then faces the beaten side from the seeding match in a play-in game to decide the final spot in the semis.

The winners of the semi-finals progress to the final and the winner of these playoffs is awarded the NBL championship.
