ESPN will host Friday’s NBA playoff matchup between the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks with tip off set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this second NBA playoff 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.

The 76ers got back to winning ways in Game 2, leveling the series with the Hawks ahead of two games in Atlanta. Joel Embiid looks healthy, which is great news for Philadelphia. Ben Simmons needs to step up offensively after attempting just three shots in Game 2.

The Hawks did what they needed to over two games in Philadephia; take home-court advantage in the series. Trae Young had one of his worst games of the postseason in Game 2, but Atlanta knows that’s unlikely to happen again. The Hawks will need to keep their rebounding and perimeter shooting going to have a chance in the series.
