The Chicago Bulls head to the “World’s Most Famous Arena” to take on the New York Knicks on the final day of the regular season. The action begins at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Sunday, April 14. The game will be played inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The Bulls have locked up the No. 9 seed in the Eastern Conference, meaning they will host their Play-In Tournament game against the No. 10 Atlanta Hawks. For Chicago to advance to the postseason, they must beat the Hawks and defeat the loser of No. 7 versus No. 8 matchup. For the Knicks, the team has clinched a top-six playoff spot. The Knicks can reach No. 2 if the Milwaukee Bucks lose two games. However, the likely outcome is that the Knicks finish as the No. 3 seed.

The Bulls versus the Knicks will air on ESPN. Fans across the country can watch New York’s Jalen Brunson try to mystify the Bulls’ defense. ESPN is included with most cable packages. Without cable, you will need a streaming TV service to access ESPN. One of the best live streaming TV services on the market is Sling TV.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers live stream: how to watch the NBA online
Joel Embiid walks off the basketball court.

On the final day of the NBA regular season, Eastern Conference rivals will square up as the Brooklyn Nets head south to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Sunday, April 14. The 76ers will host the game inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The Nets season ends today after the team failed to qualify for the playoffs. It will be a long offseason in Brooklyn, as the organization needs to decide if it wants to sell off players for draft assets and start a rebuild. Philadelphia, however, will get at least one more week of games in the postseason, whether in the Play-In Tournament or first round. With a healthy Joel Embiid, the 76ers are one of the more dangerous teams in the Eastern Conference.

Logo for the NCAA First Four.

After a polarizing Selection Sunday, the field for the 2024 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship is set. Sixty-eight teams will compete for a chance to make the Final Four in Phoenix and win a national championship. Before the First Round begins on March 21, eight teams will head to Dayton for the 2024 NCAA First Four.

Four games will be played across two nights to reduce the field from 68 to 64. Think of these games as the play-in round, similar to the NBA's Play-In Tournament. The eight teams competing in the First Four are Wagner, Howard, Colorado State, Virginia, Grambling State, Montana State, Colorado, and Boise State.

Oscars live stream: Watch the 96th Academy Awards for free

The best films of 2023 will be honored at the 2024 Oscars. Also known as the 96th Academy Awards, the 2024 Oscars will feature some of the biggest and brightest stars Hollywood has to offer, including Margot Robbie, Robert Downey Jr., Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Lily Gladstone, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, and more. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will award Oscars in 23 categories, with the top prize being Best Picture. Jimmy Kimmel returns to host for the fourth time.

Oppenheimer leads the field with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11, Killers of the Flower Moon with 10, and Barbie with eight. Can Oppenheimer complete its dominant awards season run with a Best Picture prize, or can The Zone of Interest or Poor Things pull off the improbable upset?
What channel is the Oscars on?
The 2024 Oscars will air on ABC starting at a new time of 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 10. This is a significant change from the regular 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT start time. However, ABC has decided to start the Oscars at 7 p.m. ET so it can air a new episode of Abbott Elementary upon the ceremony's completion at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT. This strategy is similar to how the network airing the Super Bowl airs an episode of television following the Big Game.
