LAS VEGAS, July 16, 2013 – The inaugural NBA Summer League Championship, the second phase of NBA Summer League 2013 in Las Vegas, tips off Wednesday, July 17, at the Thomas & Mack Center and COX Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.  The Golden State Warriors earned the first overall seed while the Chicago Bulls are the second seed.  The Phoenix Suns, NBA D-League Select Team and Charlotte Bobcats round out the top five seeds. 

Tournament action gets under way when the 11th seeded New Orleans Pelicans take on the 22nd seeded Denver Nuggets at 3 p.m. PT at the COX Pavilion and continues with five additional games featuring the other teams seeded 11-22.  Thursday’s slate tips off at 1 p.m. PT when the 7th seeded Cleveland Cavaliers take on the 10th seeded San Antonio Spurs.  The eight game schedule on Thursday concludes when the top-seeded Warriors take on either the 16th seeded Dallas Mavericks or 17th seeded Los Angeles Clippers at 7:30 p.m. PT at the Thomas & Mack Center.

The participating 22 teams have each completed three games since the summer classic tipped off on July 12.  Based on the outcome of those games, the teams are seeded 1-22 for the single elimination tournament that culminates in a championship game on July 22.  Each team will compete in at least two more contests; a minimum of one game in the single elimination tournament, and the other in a consolation game if the team loses a game on either July 17 or July 18.

Teams seeded 11-22 will compete on Wednesday, with the winners of those contests advancing in the tournament to play Thursday against teams seeded 1-10, who earned a first-round “bye.”  Teams on losing Wednesday and Thursday will play on Friday.  The single elimination tournament resumes on Saturday with a champion being crowned on July 22. 

Seeding for the tournament was determined by won-loss records.  Ties were broken using quarter-points and then point differential to determine the seedings.
