NBL1 Finals Structure

Apologies if this is in another thread but I went on the NBL1 website and couldn't find anything - how do the finals work in NBL1 South?

G3 5v8
G4 6v7

Week 2
G5 L1 v W3
G6 L2 v W4

Week 3
G7 W1 V W6
G8 W2 V W5

Week 4
W7 V W8

Ewww lucky loser.

Is this layoff structure uniform amongst all NBL1 conferences?

There's no "lucky loser" component to this Perthworld. Simply a double chance for top 4. The West league has the same structure.

An example of the lucky loser scenario is a top 6 format where the highest losing seed progresses after the first round, along with the three winning teams.

The nbl1 east only has 12 teams, it's average as it is, surely not top eight.

Same with nbl1 central, 10 teams only, and only slightly better than east.

Each league will have their own finals structure.

Okay my terminology was off but this system still involves losers in a playoff advancing which is a baffling thing we do here in Australia for whatever reason.

You can only lose one game. In the NBL system you can lose three.

You can only lose one game. In the NBL system you can lose three.

You're conflating individual games with those which belong to a series.

When you're in a playoff and you can lose at one juncture and still qualify beyond that point by losing it defeats the purpose of the whole thing in the first place.

I disagree. Having a second chance is a fair reward for a higher seeding. "Lucky loser" whereby your progression relies on certain other teams to lose as well makes little sense to me.

For what it's worth, Central have the same thing with their 5 team playoff.

Why does it matter whether you lose during a series or not?

Even with E second chance the current system is poor. Far prefer series.

As the point is to win a series, not every game of it. Losing and still qualifying to the next phase defeats the do-or-die nature of playoffs.

Yes, a series format would be far superior.
