TNT will host Tuesday’s primetime matchup between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors. Tipoff is set for 10:00 p.m. ET at Chase Center in San Francisco, California. If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchTNT. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription.

If you don’t have a cable subscription, there are quite a few streaming services offering free trials for one or two weeks. You can check YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV and be able to stream this Thursday night NBA doubleheader on TNT.

The Celtics have lost two straight close games to the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers and need to get back on track with a victory. Jayson Tatum is back after missing a slew of games because of a positive COVID-19 test, but now Marcus Smart is on the mend, recovering from a calf injury. While Jaylen Brown’s career year has been huge for Boston, Kemba Walker's lingering knee problems have remained a concern and have limited the Celtics from playing their best. Golden State has been up and down this season but secured a blowout win over the Detroit Pistons in its last game and have momentum on its side.

Stephen Curry is putting up impressive numbers without Klay Thompson, his usual backcourt co-star. Still, his lack of aggression and inconsistency from other Warriors starters have made things challenging for Golden Stat early on. Andrew Wiggins has begun to get comfortable on both ends of the court, but Kelly Oubre’s abysmal shooting and James Wiseman’s rookie struggles could make it hard for the Warriors to top a Celtics team with plenty of chemistry and defined roles.
