NBA expected to shorten season to 70 games, 5 more games per team
The NBA is considering shortening the 19-20 regular season to 70 games with play resuming in July. Teams have played approximately 65 games apiece before the season was suspended. The potential solutions are “fluid,” one source said. Playing an additional five regular season games would give playoff contenders an opportunity to play for seeding, while lottery teams would also participate. If the pandemic doesn't allow the NBA to resume play in July, a relaunch in August is in play with the possibility of instead going straight into the playoffs.

Also saw dinwiddie tweet about 5 games then playoffs earlier today.

How about cancelling the rest of the regular season altogether? What’s the point of playing more five regular season games?

They’ve been away from playing for a long time. You can’t just jump into the playoffs. They are doing the 70 because of money, though. Grizzlies lucked out, because of course.

Teams, especially the legit contenders, want a couple games to get back into the flow of things before the playoffs start

The east 1-8 is set; milwaukee is locked in 1st
brooklyn and orlando are going to be 7 or 8

west is 8-13 should all fight for that spot, but 5 games means phoenix has 0 shot

I am totally fine, it gives teams an opportunity to gain some sort of rythym back. While also giving any team just outside the bubble a chance to fight for that 8 seed.

I can't wait to watch basketball again

A 5 game season with the Lakers having a 5.5 game lead for the #1 seed in the West is good with me.

I am sure if you pulled Adam aside and asked him who he wanted in the playoffs, he would tell you he wants Zion. But Adam has 29 other governors to work with, and there are not many others who would want more games than that.

At this rate the 20-21 preseason games will be played while the 19-20 finals are being played.

5 tune up games for the playoff teams. Teams that aren’t in contention it really doesn’t make sense for them other than to collect some game checks

Why don’t they expand the playoff field like the NHL is doing? That’s still 12 games the Pelicans thought they were gonna get but won’t

I would love for the NBA to start on Christmas day. They already own it on the calendar. Let's use this opportunity to fix the sports calendars a bit.

More games more chance for infection. “Let’s do the fewest amount we can to get everyone tuned up for the playoffs and then get started.”
