The 2012–13 National Basketball League was the thirty-fifth season of competition since its establishment in 1979. A total of eight teams contested the league. The regular season was played between 5 October 2012 and 24 March 2013, followed by a post-season which involved the top four in April 2013. The schedule was announced on 4 June 2012.[1]The New Zealand Breakers successfully defended their 2011–12 title for a third consecutive championship.

Broadcast rights were held by free-to-air network Channel Ten and its digital sports sister station One, in the third year of a five-year deal, through to the 2014–15 season. In New Zealand, Sky Sport were the official league broadcaster, with a three-year exclusive deal being signed.[2]

Sponsorship included iiNet entering its third season as league naming rights sponsor and Spalding providing equipment including the official game ball.

The NBL All-Star Game was reintroduced to the fixture list after a four-year absence and was played on 22 December 2012 at the Adelaide Arena.[3]

The league reverted to an eight-team competition when Gold Coast Blaze withdrew on 18 July 2012. A new schedule was released on 25 July 2012.

Finals Series[edit]

The 2012–13 National Basketball League Finals will be played in March and April 2013, consisting of two best-of-three semi-final and final series, where the higher seed hosts the first and third games.

Playoff Seedings[edit]

  1. New Zealand Breakers
  2. Perth Wildcats
  3. Wollongong Hawks
  4. Sydney Kings

The NBL tie-breaker system as outlined in the NBL Rules and Regulations states that in the case of an identical win-loss record, the results in games played between the teams will determine order of seeding.

Under this system, Melbourne did not qualify for the playoffs by equalling Sydney's win-loss record, as the latter held advantage in the tiebreaker (2-2, +2 points).
