Six of the eight knockout round spots in the NBA’s inaugural In-Season Tournament were up for grabs on Tuesday. With the Bucks (4-0) defeating the Heat (2-2) in Miami, Milwaukee won Group B and earned the top overall seed in the East. The Indiana Pacers (4-0) and Boston Celtics (3-1) claimed Groups A and C, respectively, while the New York Knicks (3-1) won the wild-card spot based on record and a plus-42 point differential.

Here’s how the East bracket looks heading into the single-elimination quarterfinals:

  • No. 1 Bucks vs. wild-card Knicks
  • No. 2 Pacers vs. No. 3 Celtics

Games will tip off Monday Dec. 4 and Tuesday Dec. 5 but exact times have not been set.

The West bracket is still to be determined. Heading into Tuesday, only the Los Angeles Lakers have locked up a spot.
