D-League Expands Playoffs to Three Rounds

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA Development League playoffs will expand
to three rounds of three-game series this season.

Eight teams will make the postseason: the winners of the Eastern and Western Divisions, plus the teams with the next six best records in the regular season. The regular season ends April 3.

The D-League will again allow the three highest-seeded teams to select their first-round opponents, with the No. 1 team having the first pick of teams seeded 5-8. The No. 4 seed will play the team that remains.

The lower-seeded team will host Game 1 of each series, with the higher seed hosting the second and third games.
