Tonight, the NBA’s inaugural In-Season Tournament continues with nine games. The tournament kicked off last Friday and all 30 NBA teams are competing for not just the NBA Cup, but also $500,000 in prize money awaiting each member of the winning team. 


The NBA teams are divided into six pools of five teams each. These pools consist of teams within the same conference, but not necessarily the same division. Each team plays four group games, facing every team in their pool once, with the winners progressing to the knockout rounds. Results of the In-Season Tournament will count toward teams’ regular-season standings.

The tournament will continue throughout November, culminating with the Championship on Saturday, December 9. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the NBA In-Season Tournament, including the full schedule and live streaming options.
