Tip off for the Dallas Mavericks and the New York Knicks is just a few moments away. Both teams have 22 wins on the season, but the Knicks are coming off a win over the Blazers and the Mavericks just lost to the Memphis Grizzlies. Vegas oddsmakers are giving the edge to the Knicks, who will get to keep their momentum from Tuesday’s win.

The Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks game starts at 8:30 p.m. ET tonight. This game is exclusive to local Bally Sport channels, so streaming it isn’t simple — not impossible, but not straightforward. Here are our recommendations for how to live stream the game online.

This game is only being broadcast on local channels, so your options are limited. One potential option is the free version of Sling TV and the NBA League Pass add-on. Sling Freestream is a completely free cable TV option from Sling. You can get Sling Freestream and add the NBA League Pass to it for $10 for your first month (down from its usual $15). If you want to watch more NBA games, you can opt for the Sling Orange package, which includes channels like ESPN and TNT, for $15 for your first month (down from its usual $40). Make sure to check your local listings first, since NBA League Pass is subject to local blackouts.

Is there a free Mavericks vs. Knicks live stream?

Since this game is being broadcast on local Bally Sports channels, there is no way to stream it for free. The cheapest option is to get NBA League Pass through a service like Sling TV, Fubo or Hulu with Live TV. NBA League Pass is also subject to local blackouts, so you might not be able to access the game online if your local channel is broadcasting it. You can always try going back to the old antenna TV if you’re in the area.

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.

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.
