The 2022-23 NBA season is underway!
If you’re looking for ways to watch the league’s best matchups on a night-to-night basis, you’ve come to the right place. Here, you can find every nationally televised NBA game for the week, along with different ways to watch or stream all the action.
We’ve reached a marquee week in the NBA season that culminates with a five-game slate on Christmas Day, which falls on a Sunday this year. Leading up to Christmas, you can catch plenty of Grizzlies action as they’ll face back-to-back reigning MVP Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets on TNT on Tuesday before facing the Suns on ESPN on Friday and the Warriors on ESPN and ABC on Christmas Day.
With fewer nationally televised games during the week, the NBA TV schedule has a couple of notable games, including the Lakers and Suns on Monday while Kevin Durant and the streaking Nets host the Warriors on Wednesday and the Bucks on Friday.
