Kings vs Thunder live stream: Can you watch the NBA game for free?

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, but there is still some basketball to be played before kickoff today. The Sacramento Kings travel to the Oklahoma City Thunder today for a regular season match up of two Western Conference post season hopefuls. The last time these two met on the court was at the end of 2023. The Kings had the upper hand with a 128-123 win over the Thunder. As a matter of fact, the Kings have had the Thunders number the last five times, sweeping them 5-0.

It’s a good day for the Thunder to turn that sweep around. The two teams are just about to meet on the court, at 3:00 p.m. ET. Here is where you can find a live stream of the game online.

Is there a free Kings vs Thunder live stream?

If you are outside the regional market for the game, then getting a free, legal live stream is going to be hard. Fubo and YouTube TV may have free trials, but you’ll need an NBA League Pass to access out-of-market games to be live streamed. At the moment, there is no free trial for NBA League Pass, but they do have a very cheap deal through YouTube TV right now.
