The NBA released the full schedule Tuesday for the group play of the inaugural NBA in-season tournament, which begins Nov. 3.
The full slate of group-play games will take place Tuesdays and Fridays throughout November. No conventional regular-season contests will be played on those days.
A nationally televised game between the Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks is slated to kick off the tournament. A detailed breakdown of the group-play matchups and the 16 games airing on ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV is below.

The NBA revealed three randomized groups of five teams per conference in July. Each team plays its other group members once in the opening stage. Six group winners and two wild-card teams will advance to the quarterfinals in early December.
While the quarterfinals will be played in teams’ home arenas, the semifinals and championship game will take place in Las Vegas on Dec. 7 and 9.
Except for the championship tilt, all the in-season tournament games will count toward teams’ regular-season records.
