the first round of the playoffs will be changed from best-of-5 to best-of-7 this season.
Previous talks between the league and the union failed to produce an agreement on expanding the first round of the playoffs, which have been best-of-5 since 1984.
The change means that all four rounds of the NBA playoffs now will be best-of-7.


This seems like something that should only had been allowed at the beginning of the season and not at allstar break.

It wouldn't have been allowed had one of the parties disagreed. The players agreed, the teams agreed, I don't see the problem.
