TNT will host Tuesday’s secound round NBA playoff matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks with tip off set for time 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.

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.

Update: James Harden (hamstring) will play in Game 5 vs. Bucks, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Nets limp into this matchup with James Harden and Kyrie Irving battling injuries. Brooklyn came within a minute of taking a 3-0 in the series, but will now have to win what has become a best-of-3 series with two of its stars hobbling. Kevin Durant is still in the lineup, but he’ll need Brooklyn’s supporting cast to step up.

The Bucks managed to take Game 3 with Jrue Holiday’s late layup being the decisive bucket before coasting to victory in Game 4. Giannis Antetokounmpo is finding a way to get to the basket consistently and Khris Middleton has bounced back after struggling in the first two contests. Milwaukee is much healthier than Brooklyn at the moment, something the Bucks need to take advantage of.
