Play-In Tournament Schedule and Seeds

The NBA play-in tournament is officially set. Here’s the schedule and seeding for the Eastern and Western Conference.

Sunday was the final official day of the 2021-22 NBA season, meaning the playoffs are about to begin. Before that, however, the play-in tournament takes place, in which four teams in each conference fight for the numbers 7 and 8 in the playoffs.

The field was officially closed on Sunday afternoon. Numbers 7 and 8 will go head-to-head in a head-to-head match, with the winner officially securing 7th place in their respective conference. The loser of that game competes against the winner of the #9 vs. #10 game for 8th place in the playoffs. Whoever loses games #9 vs. #10 is obviously eliminated from playoff contention.
