The team with the better regular-season record has home court advantage in NBA Finals thereby hosting Games 1 and 2, and also Games 5 & 7 if they are necessary. The format of the NBA Finals is 2-2-1-1-1, which means the higher seed hosts the first two games in the series, then the next two games are played at the other team's home venue and from that point they alternate games back-and-forth. This format is a change from the old 2-3-2 format which many experts thought actually provided an advantage to the lower seeded team an by hosting three straight home games in the middle of the series. Historically the team that wins Game 1 of the NBA Finals, wins the series more than 76% of the time.
