Bucks vs. Celtics live stream: How to watch the NBA game for free

The Milwaukee Bucks are about to take on the Boston Celtics. The Celtics won the last matchup between the teams, and they have a better record on the season, but Vegas oddsmakers still favor the Bucks. It’s shaping up to be an interesting game.

The Bucks vs. Celtics game starts at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on TNT. Here are your best options for streaming the game online, including a potentially free option and our go-to pick.

The best way to watch the Bucks vs. Celtics live stream

Sling TV app icon on Apple TV.

Our go-to recommendation for streaming NBA games on TNT is Sling TV. While there currently isn’t a Sling TV free trial, it’s certainly the cheapest paid option. That’s because Sling lets you choose between two different channel packages, allowing you to pay for a smaller subset of channels you’re more likely to watch, instead of paying for channels you’ll never even consider tuning into. TNT is in both the Sling Blue and Orange plans, so you can pick either one. For NBA fans, Orange is the best option. You can get your first month for just $15, down from the usual $40.

Is there a free Bucks vs. Celtics live stream?

If you’re looking for a completely free way to stream this game, there is one potential option: the Fubo free trial. If you’ve never had Fubo before, you can get seven days for free. The reason we don’t pick this as our go-to is that a full Fubo subscription is $80 per month. If you want to watch the rest of the NBA season, Sling TV is a better option. If all you care about is this single Bucks vs. Celtics game, this is a way to watch for free.

Where to watch the 2024 NFL Pro Bowl Games live stream
Wide shot of the NFL Pro Bowl Week sign.

For the second straight year, the NFL will present the Pro Bowl Games, a reimagined two-day event featuring the league's top players participating in multiple skills challenges. In years past, the Pro Bowl was virtually unwatchable. The players did not want to give maximum effort or tackle each other for fear of injury. In 2023, the NFL removed the tackle football game in favor of the Pro Bowl Games, which returns in 2024 from Orlando, Florida.

The first day of the competition – The Skills Showdown – aired on Thursday and featured precision passing and dodgeball. Sunday's Pro Bowl Games competition will feature a flag football competition with games of move the chains, gridiron gauntlet, and tug of war.

How to watch the free Chiefs vs. Ravens live stream (legally)
Mark Andrews of the Ravens puts his hands up on the football field.

It's Conference Championship Sunday in the 2024 NFL Playoffs. The first game will feature Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to M&T Bank Stadium to face Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship.

The Chiefs are playing in their sixth straight AFC Championship Game. The only team with more consecutive AFC title game appearances is the New England Patriots, with eight from 2011 to 2018. If Mahomes wins this game and then the Super Bowl, he will have a legitimate claim to be the second-greatest quarterback in NFL history. Meanwhile, Baltimore is making their first AFC Championship appearance since Jackson became the starter in 2018.
