The Warriors are one win away from another championship title.
The Golden State team leads the Boston Celtics 3-2 after a 104-94 victory in Game 5 on Monday night. Stephen Curry has carried the team throughout the first four games but it was Andrew Wiggins who was last night’s standout performance. He ended the game with 26 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and two steals. Klay Thompson also showed out on the court, delivering his best performance of the series so far and helping the team land their double-digit win.
This will be the Warriors’ sixth time playing in the NBA Finals in eight years, while the Celtics haven’t competed for a championship in 12 years.
The two teams will battle it out for one final game on Thursday night. Game 6 kicks off at 6 p.m. PT in Boston. While tickets are still available to attend the championship game in person, there are also plenty of ways to affordably stream all the action from home. All Finals games will broadcast live on ABC, but cord-cutters can access the live coverage on streamers such as DirectTV Stream, Sling TV, and more.
Below, check out the best ways to stream the NBA Finals online.
DirecTV Stream is the best way to watch the NBA Finals from home since the streamer offers live access to the main broadcaster, ABC. Plus, their comprehensive Entertainment Package, which usually costs $69.99 a month is only $54.99 for your first two months if you sign up today.
Sling TV is the most comprehensive and affordable way to stream the Finals. The streamer’s Sling Orange package includes ABC, in addition to ESPN and ESPN3 for added analysis. Plus, a limited-time deal slashes the monthly cost in half for new users, meaning it’ll only cost $17.50/month to catch all the best games. To make sure you don’t miss anything, though, you might want to purchase their Sports Extra add-on, which costs $46/month ($23 for new users) and offers additional access to ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV.
Hulu + Live TV is another great way to catch all the action live, with the option to record the games to watch later with Cloud DVR. In addition to having access to ABC for the Finals, you’ll also be able to watch Hulu’s extensive lineup of original shows and movies.
FuboTV is another comprehensive option for streaming live TV, providing access to every major cable channel including ABC for the NBA Finals.
