TNT will host Thursday’s first round NBA playoff matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers with tip off set for 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the STAPLES Center in LA, and will air on Bally Sports AZ in the Suns market and on Bally Sports Net in the Lakers 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.
It’s been the tale of two games. In Game 1, the Suns stifled the Lakers defensively and Devin Booker was too much to handle, even double teams couldn’t stop him. In Game 2, Anthony Davis was unstoppable in the second half and the Lakers were able to even the series. Chris Paul is clearly hampered by the shoulder injury and can’t seem to catch a break in the postseason. It appears the defending champions have the momentum heading back to Staples Center for Game 3 on Thursday night.
