About the NBA Pick 'Em Playoff Bracket Challenge

The NBA Pick 'Em Playoff Bracket Challenge gives NBA fans the opportunity to put their knowledge to the test, trying to select the winner of each playoff series all the way through to the NBA Finals, crowning the 2021 NBA champions.

Entrants will be awarded points by correctly predicting the NBA teams that will win each series in the 2021 playoffs, including the total number of games in each series. The points system can be found below:

Reminder for when you're filling out your brackets: upsets happen even in the NBA Playoffs!

Last year, we saw the No. 5-seeded Miami Heat make a run all the way to the NBA Finals after gaining momentum from upsetting the No. 1-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in the second round. We also saw the No. 3-seeded Denver Nuggets pull off a miraculous comeback against the No. 2-seeded LA Clippers, winning the series after trailing 3-1 through four games.

It's not always the top seeds from each conference in the NBA Finals, so choose your upsets wisely!
