How to watch Celtics vs. 76ers, Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers NBA games tonight without cable

CNET Sports 2 weeks ago

The 2019-2020 NBA season's opening week continues Wednesday night as 11 games follow the opening night tip-offs of the PelicansRaptorsLakers and Clippers last night. The defending champ Raptors needed overtime to outlast the up-and-coming Pelicans -- even without Zion Williamson, who is out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery -- while former Raptor and Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers to take round one of the "battle of L.A."

Tonight brings a full slate of games starting at 7 p.m. ET. Among the highlights: Eastern Conference heavyweights the Celtics and 76ers match up in Philly and the Nuggets and Trail Blazers meet again after last year's seven-game Western Conference semifinals slugfest. 

Both the games will be on ESPN tonight. The Celtics and 76ers are up first and set to tip-off at 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 p.m. CT) followed by the Nuggets at Trail Blazers (7:30 p.m. PT, 10:30 p.m. ET.) 

There are plenty of other storylines to follow with familiar faces in new places. Are there enough shots to go around in Houston with James Harden and Russell Westbrook sharing the same backcourt? Can Stephen Curry keep the Golden State Warriors rolling without Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson? In the East, can Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks or Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers get to the Finals?

We'll find out the answers to these questions over the course of the season. Here's what you need to know to watch all of the NBA action this year.

NBA live on TV

You can watch nationally televised games on ESPN, TNT, ABC and NBA TV. 

Your local team's game are broadcast on a regional sports network, either a Fox Sports or NBC Sports RSN in most cases (there are a handful of independent RSNs). You'll need a pay TV subscription to tune into your regional Fox Sports or NBC Sports network.

NBA live streaming without cable

You've got two options for streaming NBA games live: 

  • Subscribe to a live TV streaming service that carries the channels for the national broadcasts and your team's RSN.
  • Buy an NBA League Pass subscription.

The former is better if you are a fan of the local team, while the latter only works if you follow an out-of-market team.

Depending on where you live, one of the major live TV streaming services could carry the local RSN that broadcasts your local team's games. Not every service carries every RSN or local network such as ABC, however, and some teams aren't available on any live TV streaming service, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries the network you want in your area.

Other stuff to know about live TV streaming services:

  • You'll need a solid internet connection.
  • You can watch any of them on TV as long as your smart TV has the service's app. You can also watch on your TV using a media streamer, such as a RokuFire TVApple TV or Chromecast.
  • You can also watch on iPhones, Android phonestablets and computer browsers.
  • You can sign up and cancel anytime, no contract required.
  • All of them offer free trial periods, so you can sign up to watch a game and then cancel.

If you live in your favorite team's TV market, see below for your streaming options. I've also included information for ESPN, TNT, ABC and NBA TV for live national broadcasts.

You can sign up to watch only your favorite out-of-market team's games for $120 for the season (or $18 a month).
