NBA In-Season Tournament standings, schedule: Lakers, Heat, Nuggets, Jazz, Pacers, Timberwolves move to 2-0

The third night of the NBA’s inaugural In-Season Tournament has come and gone, and it might have been the most exciting night we’ve seen yet. All three of the early games came down to the final minutes, with the Pacers pulling off an upset in Philadelphia to end the 76ers’ eight-game winning streak and the Heat and Hawks squeaking out victories over the Hornets and Pistons, respectively.

The late games were where the action really took off. The Timberwolves and Warriors engaged in an all-out brawl before a single basket was scored, which resulted in the ejections of Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Jaden McDaniels. The Warriors rallied behind rookie Brandin Podziemski, but came up just short in a 104-101 loss. The Clippers tried to earn a very rare victory over the Nuggets, and got James Harden’s best game in red and blue yet, but ultimately fell to 0-5 with Harden in the fold as the Nuggets eked out a 111-108 win. 

Here’s a quick refresher on what to expect in the In-Season Tournament. The league has divided each conference into three five-team groups. Those teams will play group stage games on Tuesdays and Fridays in November. The teams are debuting this season’s city edition uniforms and the games will be played on specially-designed courts

Once all five teams in each group have played one another, the top eight will advance to the knockout stage in early December. Those eight teams will include the six group winners along with one wild-card team in each conference.
