Each round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs will be a best-of-seven series with the first team to win four games advancing to the next round. For all four rounds of the playoffs, the team with the better regular season record has “home court advantage” and hosts the first two games of each round. The opposing team then hosts the next two games, and then the series alternates sites for the remaining three games if needed, until a team has won four games (2-2-1-1-1 format). Thus, the team with home court advantage for the series has the ability to host four of the potential seven games at home, if needed. Tickets for each home game during the playoffs at The Q will be labeled Home Game #1, Home Game #2, Home Game #3, etc., as the playoffs progress through all rounds.
Due to the nature of the playoffs, ticket on sale information will be determined based on how each round unfolds.
A new email notification to purchase tickets will be sent throughout the playoffs as games are decided and scheduled.
The NBA will announce specific dates and times for the first round of playoff games shortly after the regular season is over.
