Although the NBA's regular season is over, the playoff field still isn't set.

The final two seeds in the Eastern and Western Conference will be decided in the 2024 NBA Play-In Tournament.

In each conference, the seventh-seeded team plays the eighth-seeded team, and the ninth-seeded team plays the 10th-seeded team. The winner of the 7-8 game earns the No. 7 seed, while the loser will face off against the winner of the 9-10 game for a chance to earn the eighth and final playoff seed.

The Chicago Bulls own the No. 9 seed in the tournament, which grants them a homecourt advantage against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.

Here's what you need to know about the game:
