NBL Finals dates?

Does anyone know the dates for the start of the NBL finals? I know there's the fiba window after the last regular round but not sure how long after that they’ll start.

You know the old TV show trope where someone gets hit on the head and loses their memory, and the only way to fix it is to hit them on their head again and then suddenly everything is back to normal? Well as Cats fan, that's what I hope happens with this second FIBA window...

I'm not sure I would be worrying about Finals dates yet if I were a Perth fan.

The way they're currently playing with no third import seemingly on the horizon too they're in real danger of missing the playoffs this season. It's probably unlikely though. Brisbane the way things are looking will round out the top 3 with Perth & Adelaide fighting it out for the final playoff spot.

Adelaide don't look like they're a serious playoff contender but if they get a wriggle on and win at least two of their last three games against Perth it could be possible.

Don't forget season splits I believe are no longer used to determine final ladder positions either if teams are tied on overall W/L records it then goes to their points differential percentage versus all teams across the season to determine who advances.

1 game behind the top team which is apparently the best team ever assembled!

Those regulations are from 2011. They were changed before the 2017-18 season re: tied teams on the ladder.
