New This Year: In-Season Tournament

This season saw the inaugural NBA In-Season Tournament, an annual competition that features all 30 teams competing within the regular season for the NBA Cup. The In-Season Tournament tipped off on November 3 in NBA team markets and culminated with the playing of the Semifinals (December 7) and Championship (December 9) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with the L.A. Lakers officially taking home the Cup.

According to the NBA, all 30 teams were 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 then consisted of two stages:

  • Group Play: November 3–28, each team played 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 — advanced to the Knockout Rounds, single-elimination games in the Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Championship. The qualifying teams competed 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 counted toward the NBA’s regular-season standings (except the Championship). Each team continued to play 82 regular-season games.
