1993 NBA Playoffs

The 1993 NBA Playoffs was the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association's 1992-93 season. The tournament concluded with the Eastern Conference champion Chicago Bulls defeating the Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns 4 games to 2 in the NBA Finals. Michael Jordan was named NBA Finals MVP for the third straight year.

This was the Suns' second Western Conference title; they made their first NBA Finals appearance in 1976, losing to the Celtics.

The Cavaliers defeated the Nets in the first round, which was their last win in a playoff series until 2006.

The fifth-year Charlotte Hornets made their playoff debut, and became the first of the 1988/89 expansion teams (Charlotte, Orlando, Minnesota and Miami) to win a playoff series, beating Boston 3-1.

Game 6 of the Suns-Spurs series was the last game ever played at the HemisFair Arena.

The Knicks–Pacers rivalry started in their first round encounter, which New York won 3-1. But it wasn't until the next two meetings (1994, 1995) that the rivalry became even more intense, particularly due to Reggie Miller's heroics in the Garden that made him and Indiana household names and legitimate contenders in the East.
