Redemptions give collectors the ability to redeem and collect the best Moments from each round of the NBA Playoffs, faster than ever before.
The first Conference Semifinals series has ended, with the Denver Nuggets defeating the Phoenix Suns, and Moments from this matchup can be redeemed starting today.
With two Game 6 showdowns this Friday between the New York Knicks and Miami Heat, and Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers, a Game 7 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics this Sunday, and the potential for a Game 7 on Sunday and Monday pending the outcome of tonight's games, here's an overview of what to expect over the coming days and how Redemptions work in the Conference Semifinals.
The biggest difference between Redemptions from the First Round and Conference Semifinals is that for this round of Redemptions, you can redeem a Moment using your Redemption OR your First Round Moment. For Wildcards, you can use your First Round Wildcard to redeem a Conference Semifinals Wildcard, even though they are different players.
During the First Round, you could redeem a Moment using your Redemption.
During the Conference Semifinals, you can redeem a Moment using your Redemption OR your First Round Moment.
When the Conference Finals end, you can redeem those Moments using your Redemption OR your Conference Semifinals Moment.
When the NBA Finals end, you can redeem those Moments using your Redemption OR your Conference Finals Moment.
The Redemptions Hub has been upgraded to allow collectors to choose between their Redemption or First Round Moment when they redeem Conference Semifinals Moments.
