In-Season Tournament: NBA 2023

The NBA, in its continued quest for innovation and added excitement, will be conducting an in-season tournament from November 3 to December 9, 2023. This unique event promises to infuse additional vigor into the NBA calendar, presenting teams and fans with a fresh challenge and a chance to claim early-season bragging rights.

Group Stage Format

For this competition, teams from each conference have been divided into three groups. The group stage matches will take place between November 3 and November 28, 2023. Notably, these matches have been scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays, providing a clear focus for fans during these days.

Playoff Structure

Once the group stage concludes, the playoff spots will be determined by the winners of each group. Additionally, the best-performing team that finishes second in their respective conference will also advance to the playoff round. This structure ensures a blend of predictability and wild card excitement.

The quarter-final matches will be conducted at the home venues of the teams which secure the first and second seeding after the group stages, adding a strategic element for teams as they vie for home-court advantage.

Finals at T-Mobile Arena

The semi-finals and the climactic final of the in-season tournament are slated to be held at the illustrious T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. This neutral location is set to provide a spectacular backdrop for the crucial matches, ensuring a thrilling atmosphere devoid of home-court advantage.

Integration with the Regular Season

An interesting facet of this in-season tournament is its integration with the NBA’s regular season. Except for the tournament’s final match, all other games will count towards the regular season standings1. This design ensures that each game carries dual significance, contributing both to the tournament’s progression and the overall NBA season standings.


The introduction of the in-season tournament exemplifies the NBA’s commitment to continually evolve and present its global audience with enthralling basketball action. With every game carrying amplified importance, teams, players, and fans are sure to be treated to a riveting month of basketball.
