ABC will host Saturday’s first-round NBA playoff matchup between the New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks with tip off set for 1:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this first round NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game with ABC, WatchESPN or via their mobile apps. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ABC 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 kept Game 3 close early before the Hawks exploded in the second quarter and never let up. Derrick Rose put up 30 points, but the rest of the team struggled to contribute. Julius Randle will need to bounce back in Game 4 after going 2-15 from the floor.

Trae Young delighted the home crowd with 21 points and 14 assists en route to a 105-94 win. Danilo Gallinari found his shooting stroke, going 4-4 from behind the arc as Atlanta hit 16 triples on the day. The Hawks will look to take a commanding 3-1 lead back to Madison Square Garden.

The Hawks are favored in Game 4 at -4.5.
