ESPN will host DAY’s matchup between the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets with tip off set for 8:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime 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 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 are 1-1 since returning from the All-Star break and remain in the thick of the playoff picture in the East. At 20-19, the Knicks sit in seventh place in the conference and are only 1.0 game back of the Miami Heat, who are in the 4-seed. It’s a tight race with teams trying to avoid the play-in tournament. The last time the Knicks faced the Nets, it was before the James Harden trade and Kyrie Irving was sidelined. New York will need to adjust if it wants to avoid another L, this time to Kyrie and The Beard.

The Nets will be without Kevin Durant for Monday’s game. In the previous meeting, Durant led the Nets in scoring with 26 points in the win over the Knicks. Brooklyn enters this game favored by 8.5 points despite no KD. The Knicks have been one of the better teams against the spread. So are the Nets. Brooklyn will look to extend its winning streak to five games.
