NBA & TAB (Gamble Responsibly) | Origins: Melbourne

April 15th, 2023


TAB Origins is a knockout 2v2 Basketball tournament. The format is “First to 11 – Win by 2” but each knockout game consists of 8 minutes of regulation time, plus an “Overtime” period (if required).  For more information have a look at all the rules.

If at the end of regulation time (8 minutes), a team holds a lead of at least 2 points, they are deemed the winner. If a 2-point (or more) lead is not held by a team (ie there is a 1-point lead or the game is a tie), the game will go into “Overtime” and scores reset to nil-nil.

In Overtime, the first team to score 2 points will be deemed the winner. For more information read all the rules.
