If you’re within the local markets for tonight’s game, there is a good chance you can catch the live stream via a free trial through Fubo. However, out-of-market live streams are going to cost you since NBA League Pass does not offer a free trial period at the moment. Still, it does not hurt to sign up for it, as you never know when the service is going to provide some great deals. Like the current YouTube TV deal that will get you the rest of the season for $50.
