For the first time in league history, four teams will officially advance to the semifinals of the NBA’s In-Season Tournament in Las Vegas.
The winning team will receive this beautiful trophy and each player will earn an additional $500,000. We’ve already had a chance to watch some amazing basketball and that should only continue as the next round of the tournament begins.
The quarterfinals were held on Dec. 4 and 5 and the winners advanced to the semifinals in Las Vegas on Dec. 7.
Much like the rest of the In-Season Tournament games to date, the semifinal games will count as regular season games. But the championship game, held on Dec. 9 in Las Vegas as well, does not count as a regular-season game.
This is what the brackets look like when the four teams take the court in Las Vegas on Thursday:
GAME: Dec. 7 @ 5:00 PM ET on TNT
GAME: Dec. 7 @ 9:00 PM ET on TNT
