NBA press release

LAS VEGAS – The defending MGM Resorts NBA Summer League Champion Los Angeles Lakers earned the top seed in the 2018 Summer League tournament, following the first five days of action in Las Vegas. The Portland Trail Blazers (2), Phoenix Suns (3), Denver Nuggets (4) and Houston Rockets (5) round out the top five seeds.

The single-elimination tournament tips off on Wednesday, July 11 (Thursday, July 12, PHL time), at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The tournament will culminate in a championship game on Tuesday, July 17 (Wednesday, July 18, PHL time) on ESPN.

Thursday’s (Friday, PHL time) slate features eight games, including the top-seeded Lakers facing the winner of the 16th-seeded Washington Wizards or the 17th-seeded LA Clippers and the second-seeded Trail Blazers taking on the winner of the matchup between the 15th-seeded Indiana Pacers and the 18th-seeded Atlanta Hawks.

Each of the 30 teams played three games apiece since the event tipped off on July 6 (July 7, PHL time), with the results of those games determining the tournament seeding. Seeding for the tournament was determined by win-loss records, with ties being broken using quarter-points followed by point differential. Each team will compete in at least two more games in Las Vegas.

The Lakers and Trail Blazers earned first-round “byes” by virtue of being the first- and second-seeded teams. Teams that lose a game on either Wednesday or Thursday (Thursday or Friday, PHL time) will play a consolation game on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). The championship tournament resumes on Saturday with a six-game slate.

The complete list of team seedings and results from the first five days of competition, is attached and available online at www.nba.com/summerleague.
