Spurs vs Warriors live stream: Can you watch for free?

The San Antonio Spurs travel to Golden State to take on the Warriors in NBA action tonight. The Spurs are, of course, well out of playoff contention at this point, but phenom rookie Victor Wembanyama seemingly makes NBA history on a nightly basis, making them a must-watch team anytime they step onto the court.

The game is starting very soon, at 8:30 p.m. ET, and will only be televised locally on Bally Sports Southwest-SA (Spurs markets) and NBC Sports Bay Area (Warriors markets). Fortunately, no matter where you live in the US, there are some different ways you can watch a free live stream of the game.

There are a few different ways you can watch a free live stream of the Spurs vs Warriors, with your options depending on whether the game is in or out of your market:

If you live in the Spurs market, you can watch a live stream of Bally Sports Southwest-SA via Fubo (“Pro” channel package) or DirecTV Stream (“Choice” channel package or above). With Fubo, you’ll be able to watch free for seven days before you cancel or pay, and with DirecTV Stream, the free trial lasts five days.

If you live in the Warriors market, you can watch a live stream of NBC Sports Bay Area via Fubo (“Pro” channel package), DirecTV Stream (“Choice” channel package or above) or YouTube TV (“Base Plan”). Fubo gives you seven days free, while DirecTV Stream and YouTube TV each give you five.

If you live outside of those markets, you can watch a live stream of the game via NBA League Pass, which includes game that isn’t in your market (and isn’t nationally televised on TNT, ESPN or ABC). You can get League Pass as an add-on to YouTube TV or DirecTV Stream (it can be a part of your free trial), or you can get it by itself through the actual NBA digital platforms or Amazon Prime Channels. Both of those will give you seven days for free, too.
