New This Year: NBA In-Season Tournament

This season sees the inaugural NBA In-Season Tournament, an annual competition that will feature all 30 teams competing within the regular season for the NBA Cup. The In-Season Tournament will tip off on November 3 in NBA team markets and culminate with the playing of the Semifinals (December 7) and Championship (December 9) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

According to the league, all 30 teams have been randomly drawn into groups of five based on their records last season:

  • West Group A: Grizzlies, Suns, Lakes, Jazz, Trail Blazers
  • West Group B: Nuggets, Clippers, Pelicans, Mavericks, Rockets
  • West Group C: Kings, Warriors, Timberwolves, Thunder, Spurs
  • East Group A: 76ers, Cavaliers, Hawks, Pacers, Pistons
  • East Group B: Bucks, Knicks, Heat, Wizards, Hornets
  • East Group C: Celtics, Nets, Raptors, Bulls, Magic

The In-Season Tournament will consist of two stages:

  • Group Play: November 3–28, each team will play four designated Group Play games — one game against each of the other four teams in the group, two at home and two away — on Tournament Nights.
  • Knockout Rounds: Eight teams — each of the six groups’ top teams, plus two “wild card” teams — will advance to the Knockout Rounds, single-elimination games in the Quarterfinals, Semifinals and Championship. The qualifying teams will compete for a prize pool and the new In-Season Tournament trophy, the NBA Cup.

All 67 games across both the Group Play stage and the Knockout Rounds stage will count toward the NBA’s regular-season standings (except the Championship). Each team will continue to play 82 regular-season games. Qualifying teams will compete for a prize pool and the NBA Cup, the new In-Season Tournament trophy.
