NBA Games Today: Full TV schedule for 2020 season restart on TNT, ESPN and more channels

The official restart of the 2019-20 season in the NBA’s Orlando bubble is Thursday night with a doubleheader with Pelicans vs. Jazz and Lakers vs. Clippers, but Friday’s series of NBA games is the first of 15 consecutive days of non-stop basketball.

Each of the 22 teams invited to resume the NBA season after more than four months away from the field is scheduled to play eight seeding games before the playoffs begin in mid-August. That means the NBA had to pack up to six games a day in a matter of weeks – a wonderful sight for basketball fans.

LAKE: Watch selected NBA games live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)

National TV broadcasts of the NBA games from the Orlando bubble are shown by four different networks – ABC, ESPN, TNT, NBATV – and Friday’s program features the first of a handful of ESPN doubleheaders. And those who have access to NBATV and ESPN will be treated to a national TV triple header on Friday.

Here’s a full TV schedule for the first two nights of NBA games during the restart of the 2020 season, including start times and channels for the national broadcasts on Thursday and Friday.

Live streaming NBA games

ESPN and TNT are available from almost all U.S. cable providers, but NBATV is only offered by Verizon (channels 89 and 589) and Comcast (channels 734 and 478).

For those who have included ESPN and TNT in their cable / satellite plans, live stream presentations of the NBA games from those networks can be found in the ESPN app and the Watch TNT app, respectively.

For those who don’t have a cable or satellite subscription, there are four main OTT TV streaming options that carry both ESPN and TNT – Sling, Hulu, YouTubeTV and AT&T Now. Of the four, Hulu and YouTubeTV offer free trial options.

Below are links to each.

Of the four services, Hulu is the only one that does not have NBATV. FuboTV has NBATV but no ESPN or TNT.

All NBA seeding games played in Orlando are also available through Steam NBA League Pass at a discounted price ($ 28.99) because there are so few games left in the season. However, games on the NBA League Pass are excluded in local markets.
