Therefore, in total, 16 teams will qualify to compete in the NBA playoffs. The top six from each conference advance directly. The remaining four spots will be defined in the play-in, between the teams placed between seventh and tenth place in each conference.

It’s worth remembering that the play-in involves the teams that placed between seventh and tenth place in each conference. They play single knockout games to define two places for the playoffs.
