The 22 NBA teams participating in the season restart will play eight “seeding games” each. These 88 total “seeding games” will be played from July 30 through August 14 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and will count toward the final 2019-20 regular-season standings and regular-season statistics. If a play-in is required to determine the eighth playoff seed in either conference, it will take place on Aug. 15-16. The first round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs will begin on Aug. 17.
Throughout the year, SiriusXM NBA Radio offers fans the most extensive and in-depth NBA coverage available on radio. The channel airs nationwide on SiriusXM radios (channel 86 or 207) and on the SiriusXM app and offers live game broadcasts and a daily schedule of NBA-focused news and talk hosted by former players, coaches and executives.
