The 3x3 Basketball competition at the 18th Asian Games for both men and women will begin with the preliminary round, for which teams will be divided into groups. Every team will play every other team in its group. Teams are awarded wins or losses. Considering that the number of groups will be 4, The best-placed 2 teams in each group will qualify for the quarter-finals. If two (2) teams in the same group finish the preliminary round with the same number of wins their respective rankings within the group will be determined by the result of the head-to-head game between them. If three (3) or more teams in the same group finish the preliminary round with the same number of wins, their respective rankings within the group will be determined by the head-to-head games between them and then, if necessary, by points scored on average. If teams are still tied, the team with the better seed will win the tie-breaker. Page 24 of 32 After the preliminary round, the competition will follow a straight knockout format, with quarter-finals, semi-finals, a bronze-medal game (contested by the two losing semi-finalists) and a gold medal game.
