Furthermore, all open dates/times are subject to change, depending on when teams have secured their playoff berths. In the event that play-in game/s will be needed to decide the owner/s of the eighth and final spot/s in either conference, we will accept entries for the brackets even before that game/s is played. Players can choose the play-in teams as their selection in their brackets.

In case of ties, Nitrogen Sports will use the My Combined Score entries of players. This is the players’ predictions of the final score of the last game of the 2020 NBA Playoffs and will be used as the first tiebreaker. The player with the closest prediction to the actual combined score will get the higher ranking in the leaderboard. If a player failed to place a prediction, that player will have a default score prediction of zero (0).
