It doesn’t offer a free trial, but if you’re looking for a long-term option that doesn’t break the bank and simply lets you watch some nationally televised NBA games, the Sling Orange bundle is your perfect option. TNT, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3 (which simulcasts NBA games that are on ABC) are among the 30-plus channels included, and it will cost you just $20 for your first month ($40 per month after that).

Perfect for watching NFL, NBA, and more, you can score 50% off your first month of live TV with Sling TV.

Both DirecTV Stream or YouTube TV include TNT and come with a free trial, so you can easily watch tonight’s game at no cost. They’re good long-term options if that’s what you’re looking for, too, as they both include–in addition to about 100-plus other channels–ESPN, ABC, and NBA TV, and have NBA League Pass available as an extra add-on. The DirecTV Stream “Choice” package also has regional sports networks available in most markets (you can check what’s available in your zip code here), so many fans will able to watch in-market games there, as well.

If you want to watch the Clippers vs Thunder for the cheapest price, the Max streaming service is the way to go. You aren’t going to get a free trial, and it doesn’t come with any other live TV channels like the aforementioned options, but you can watch all NBA on TNT games live on Max with the B/R Sports add-on, which is currently included at no extra cost (it will eventually be an extra $10 per month).

And your final option is Hulu With Live TV, which is more for people looking for something long-term since it doesn’t include a free trial and costs $77 per month. But if you are looking for a cable-replacement that you’re wanting to keep for a while, Hulu With Live TV is probably the best jack-of-all-trades option, as it includes 90-plus live channels (including TNT), it comes with Hulu’s TV and movie streaming library, and it includes access to both Disney+ and ESPN+ at no extra cost.

How to watch Jake Paul fight Ryan Bourland this weekend

Jake Paul (8-1, 5 KOs) takes another step on his long road to a legitimate title shot with a fight against Ryan Bourland (17-2, 6 KOs) this weekend. Paul, who has previously fought big names like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and a slew of MMA fighters, says he plans to fight several opponents at his experience level over the next few years, climbing the rankings until he earns a shot at a title the old-fashioned way. Bourland is a former Golden Gloves champion, but Paul is heavily favored. Paul knocked out his last opponent, Andre August, 28 seconds into the fight. Vegas has set the over-under odds for the fight at 1.5 rounds, meaning they suspect another early knockout.

Although Jake Paul's star power may be the main draw for the event, this card is actually headlined by Amanda Serrano (46-2-1, 30 KOs), who defends her unified women's world featherweight titles against Nina Meinke (18-3, 4 KOs). This will be Serrano's second time defending her titles in a fight scheduled for 12 three-minute rounds, rather than the usual women's 10 two-minute rounds. The fight takes place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and will start live streaming on DAZN at 7:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 2. Here's everything you need to know to watch boxing online this weekend.
