TNT will host Sunday’s first round NBA playoff matchup between the No. 4 Atlanta Hawks and the No. 5 New York Knicks with tip off set for 7:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York, and will air on MSG in the Knicks market and on Bally Sports East ATL in the Hawks market.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Knicks and Hawks are both making playoff returns after recent absences. This is New York’s first playoff game since 2013 and Atlanta’s first since 2017. The Knicks swept the season series but are underdogs in the series in spite of having home court advantage. The Knicks are a 1.5-point favorite in Game 1, but Atlanta is -136 to win the series at DraftKings Sportsbook.
