The 1st-4th place teams in Group “B” will qualify for the Play-in, while the remaining teams will finish the championship.
- Play-in. The task of this stage is to determine the 2nd teams that will take part in the play-off round. The losing teams will take the final 9th and 10th place in the VTB United League.
- Playoffs. The playoff round is a series of games. In the quarterfinals and in the series for 3rd place the teams play each other up to 3 wins, and in the semifinals and finals – up to 4 wins. Below is a diagram of the playoff round.
