The Play-In Tournament isn't going anywhere.

The NBA Board of Governors has voted to continue the Play-In Tournament for the 2021-22 season for the No. 7 to No. 10 seeds in both conferences, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Tuesday afternoon.

Next season's event will be played from April 12-15.

The 2021 NBA Play-In Tournament created two of the best games of the season with the Golden State Warriors playing against the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies in win-or-go-home games.

In fact, Warriors at Lakers was the most-watched NBA game on ESPN since the 2019 Western Conference Finals with 5.6 million viewers.
