After the fourth night of the in-season tournament, seven clubs are still unbeaten.

We have finally reached the halfway point of the group stage of the NBA‘s first-ever In-Season Tournament.

After the host Pelicans upset Denver on Friday night, only seven teams are still unbeaten, including the NBA champion Nuggets.

In addition to moving to 2-1 after the victory, New Orleans also secured the top spot in the West B group because they now had the advantage in their head-to-head matchup with the Nuggets.

Additionally, the Clippers won their first game under James Harden after Los Angeles defeated the Houston Rockets, who had been 1-0 in group play.

In other West action, the Suns victory over the Jazz has put the Lakers (3-0) alone atop Group A. Additionally, the Kings (2-0) outscored the Timberwolves (2-0) by six points with a +16 point differential, propelling them into first position in Group C.

This Friday in Minnesota, those two clubs will play each other in a West C matchup. The Jazz are now leading the wild card race with a +19 point difference, giving them a 10-point advantage over the Nuggets’ +9.

The Bucks (2-0) overtook the Heat (2-0) with a dominant 31-point victory over the Hornets, taking control of the East B group with a point differential of +36 for Milwaukee to +13 for Miami.

In the event that both teams advance to 3-0, the winner of that group will be decided in their head-to-head match on November 28 in Miami.

With a pair of zeros on Friday, the Pacers (East A) and Celtics (East C) continue to lead their respective groups at 2-0. With a one-point advantage in point difference, the Heat (2-0) would advance as the wild card, barely beating out the 76ers (2-0), should the group play conclude today.

A brief recap of what to expect from the In-Season Tournament is provided below. Each conference has been split up into three groups of five teams by the league.

In November, those teams will compete in group stage matches on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The games will be held on specially constructed courts, and the teams will be wearing their first-ever city edition uniforms this season. 

The top eight teams will move on to the knockout stage in early December after all five teams in each group have played each other. The six group winners and one wild-card team from each league will make up those eight teams.
