The first round of the WNBA playoffs is a two-out-of-three series (meaning the first team to two wins moves on to the next round). The top two seeds in each conference have the home court advantage for the series. The games alternate home sites starting at the home of the top seed.
The winning team in each first round series advances to the Conference Finals. This round is also a two-out-of-three series and again alternates home sites starting at the home of the top seed. The WNBA Finals Champion is determined in a best three-out-of-five series. The first two games are played at the home of the top seed, followed by two games (game 4 if needed) at the home of the lower seed. If the teams are tied at the end of four games, the fifth and final game is played at the home of the top seed.
