Two games will highlight the Friday night NBA playoff slate as the second round continues. ESPN will feature both games as part of a doubleheader.
The first matchup will be Game 3 of the Eastern conference series between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers, tipping off at 7:00 p.m. ET in Philadelphia. The Heat have thoroughly dominated the Sixers so far this series, picking up two blowout victories at home to take a 2-0 lead. Philly appears to already be on the ropes and will once again be without MVP candidate Joel Embiid for tonight’s game.
The second matchup will feature Game 3 of the Western conference series between the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks, tipping off at 9:30 p.m. ET in Dallas. The Suns got big-time efforts from Chris Paul and Devin Booker in Game 2 on Wednesday, helping their team pick up the 129-109 win to go up 2-0 in the series.
If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN 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.
