TNT will host Thursday’s first round NBA playoff matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers with tip set for 10:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the STAPLES Center in LA, and will air on Bally Sports AZ in the Suns market and on Spectrum SportsNet in the Lakers market.

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.

The Suns have a chance to take down the defending champions at Staples Center on Thursday night. Phoenix came out and demolished the Lakers in Game 5 with a 115-85 victory. The Lakers were without PF Anthony Davis (groin), who’s status is up in the air again for tonight. If AD remains sidelined, it will need to be LeBron James who carries the team to a win, something he was unable to do on Tuesday. The Suns are expected to be full-go with Chris Paul (shoulder), who left early in the blowout to rest his injury.
