This is what I dont understand and was wondering if someone could shed light on this.
They say that the top 3 in each division will make the playoffs and then the remaining 2 spots will be determined by the 2 remaining best records. Thus, it is possible for one division to have 5 teams in the playoffs and then the other division to have 3.
Then they say the playoffs would be a divisional format, in which 1 plays 4 and 2 plays 3. However, that may not be the case if there are only 3 teams from 1 division who makes the playoffs. I suppose it can possibly be not entirely a divisional format if this scenario plays out.
