Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat live stream: How to watch the NBA online

It’s rivalry week in the NBA, and two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference will face off on Thursday night. Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics head to South Beach to play Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT on January 25. The national game will air on TNT.

The Celtics and Heat are on a collision course to meet in the conference finals for the fourth time in five seasons. Boston is the number one seed in the East, ahead of the second-seeded Milwaukee Bucks by a few games. Miami has between the sixth and seventh seed. However, Miami has proven that their seed does not matter if they make the playoffs. Last season, the Heat went to the NBA Finals as the eighth seed. Miami should have their newest acquisition from the Charlotte Hornets, Terry Rozier, playing against the Celtics.

Watch the Celtics and Heat write another chapter in the rivalry on TNT, a network found in most cable packages. For those cord-cutters, there are multiple ways to watch TNT without cable. One of the premier alternatives to cable is Sling TV, a streaming television service. Find out how to watch Celtics versus Heat and other NBA games from anywhere with Sling below.

Where to watch NXT Vengeance Day 2024 live stream: date, start time, match card
Logo for NXT Vengeance Day 2024.

NXT kicks off its 2024 Premium Live Event schedule with the 2024 Vengeance Day. From 2001-2011, Vengeance was a WWE pay-per-view featuring the top wrestlers from Raw or SmackDown, depending on the year. The event experienced a hiatus for 10 years before its reincarnation as an NXT show in 2021. Vengeance Day 2024 is the fourth iteration of the NXT brand.

The main event will feature Ilja Dragunov defending his NXT Championship against Trick Williams. Expect "Whoop That Trick Chants" during this match, as fans have rallied behind Williams the last few months. Williams is even over with the WWE audience, as evidenced by the loud pop he received on the January 26 episode of SmackDown. Williams is in a unique situation as he attempts to pull a doubleheader at Vengeance Day. Earlier in the night, Williams will team with Carmelo Hayes to face Baron Corbin and Bron Breakker in the Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals.

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.
