China News Service, July 21. With the CBA regular season on the 20th, Fujian beat Xinjiang 106:101. This season, the 12 teams in the CBA playoffs have been determined. However, the specific ranking may change with the results of the final rounds, and there is still much suspense about the first round of the playoffs.
The 12 teams that have locked their seats in the playoffs are Guangdong, Xinjiang, Beijing, Liaoning, Guangsha, Zhejiang, Beijing Enterprises, Qingdao, Jilin, Shanxi, Shandong and Fujian.
As the CBA league has been suspended for several months due to the epidemic this season, the playoff schedule is likely to be different from the normal season. Earlier, media reported that the 12-to-8 and 8-to-4 games were all single-elimination-elimination games. Starting from the semifinals, a three-game two-win system is adopted. If the CBA playoffs really adopt this format, it will undoubtedly increase the uncertainty of the game.
