Bucks vs Suns live stream: Can you watch the NBA game for free?

Tonight, the Milwaukee Bucks (33-17) head out to the desert to take on the Phoenix Suns (29-21).

The Bucks may be an NBA finals hopeful, but defensively, they have struggled as they now sit 19th ranked defensively in the league. The Suns continue their pursuit toward the postseason led by Devin Booker and Kevin Durant, as they are coming off a dominant performance over the Washington Wizards the other night.

This east-west matchup is about to hit the airwaves on TNT, starting at 10:00 p.m. ET. Here is all you need to know about catching a live stream of the game online.

If you’re looking for the number one place to see tonight’s matchup, catch it on Sling TV. With the ability to customize what you want to watch, Sling TV gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Another major perk when you sign up is that the first month of Sling is 50% off, which can cost you as little as $20. Sling also has two main packages for customers to choose from: Sling Orange and Sling Blue. Many sports fans flock to Orange due to the channels provided in the packages. Sling TV has no free trial, but that discount in the first month is a great deal that you don’t want to miss out on.

Is there a free Bucks vs Suns live stream?

The easy answer here is no; there is not a free live stream for tonight’s game. If you don’t want to go with Sling TV, there is also Warner Bros. Discovery’s streaming platform, Max. Which curates all the channels under their umbrella of content. A few times a week, through their Bleacher Report Sports menu, you can catch the live stream of an NBA game through them. Max has no free trial but is as low as $10 a month.
