NBA In-Season Tournament: How to Watch Knicks-Bucks, Mavs-Nuggets


Nov 1, 2023

The NBA In-Season tournament kicks off on Friday, and there’s plenty on the line with two big matchups. The night features a double-header showcasing the New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks and the Dallas Mavericks vs. Denver Nuggets. Two of the top three favorites to win the NBA title are kicking off the tournament, which offers plenty of intrigue for fans to tune in. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic highlight the star-studded opening to the new In-Season tournament. 

The In-Season tournament is new in the NBA and will feature all 30 teams. There are two stages to the tournament: group play and the knockout stage. Each team will play four group play games in divisions that were drawn based on won-loss records from the 2022-23 regular season. Eight teams will then advance to the knockout round comprised of the teams with the best standing in each of the six groups and two “wild cards.” The remaining eight teams will form a quarter-finals, concluding with neutral-site Semifinals on December 7 and then the Championship on December 9.
