NBA In-Season Tournament schedule, scores, standings: Celtics, 76ers, Hornets, Mavs pick up their first wins


The NBA’s inaugural In-Season Tournament continues Friday night. Seven of the nine games are already in the books and one of the stories of the night thus far is the Charlotte Hornets leapfrogging over the Miami Heat and the Milwaukee Bucks in the group standings. Yes, all three teams are 1-0, but since those squads have yet to square off, the Hornets (+7, 124) are sporting the group’s best point differential (second tiebreaker) and points scored (third tiebreaker) ahead of the Heat (+7, 121) and Bucks (+5, 110). The remaining three games of the night are all still in action.
Five of the 18 teams in action Friday have already played in their tournament debuts. The Nets were the only winner from last week within that group, but fell to 1-1 after losing to the Celtics. Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks improved to 1-1 behind a 44-6-6 night from Luka Doncic. The Wizards and Grizzlies, the first 0-2 squads, are in deep trouble as they probably will need to win out to even have a shot at reaching a wild-card spot.
After the second night of the tournament is over, only the Atlanta Hawks and Orlando Magic, the two teams that played in Thursday’s Mexico City game won by the Hawks, will have yet to play their first tourney game.
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.
