For viewers who live in the Knicks or Rockets markets, there are two different ways you can watch a legal live stream of the game: Fubo and DirecTV Stream. The latter includes MSG and Space City Home Network in local markets as part of the “Choice” package, and it also comes with a free trial. If you’re searching for a long-term option, DirecTV Stream is slightly more expensive than Fubo, but it includes TNT, making it the only option to watch every single NBA game if you live in the Knicks or Rockets market.

For out-of-market viewers, you’re going to need NBA League Pass, which is available through Fubo, DirecTV Stream, YouTube TV or Amazon Prime Channels, all of which come with their own free trial.
