The National Basketball Association (NBA) fans are getting excited since the sports tournament is pushing through its 2019-2020 playoffs next month.

The NBA Board of Governors has successfully agreed to finally come up with a plan to set the event on July 31, 2020. The league was initially scheduled to happen last April 18. However, it was terminated due to the dangers brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the Toronto Raptors as the defending champion, the NBA playoffs this year will have twenty-two teams that will play in eight regular seasons. It will be the basis of the seeding process, which will still come in the usual format.  Automatically, the team that won the most games in every conference will proceed to the playoffs.

Now that the NBA playoffs season will start, the excitement fills in the senses of every sports bettor and basketball enthusiasts.


As this event begins to move forward next month, here are some of the teams with the highest probability of proceeding to the NBA playoffs.
