How the Knockout Rounds work

All games are single-elimination. This stage features three rounds in the span of one week: Quarterfinals > Semifinals > Championship.

The last team standing will win the new In-Season Tournament trophy, the NBA Cup.

Games played in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals will count as regular season games. The Championship is the only In-Season Tournament game that will not count towards regular season records and stats.
