The 1956 NBA Finals was the championship series and conclusion of the 1955-56 NBA season. The Philadelphia Warriors defeated the Fort Wayne Pistons four games to one. The series is notable for being the only Finals to use a 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 home schedule (meaning the teams alternated home games); the format was scrapped the next season.
