The playoffs will start immediately after the play-in tournament is over. The postseason will start on April 15 and last through mid-June this year.

Start of NBA Finals — June 1

On June 1, 2023, the NBA Finals will start. As always, it will be a best-of-seven series. The only issue left, now that the dates have been decided, is which two teams will be competing for a banner in June.
