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

Tonight the Denver Nuggets (36-17) travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks (34-19) in an East vs. West matchup. Some are saying that this game could be a preview of the NBA Finals later this year. Time will tell on that, but as for now, it’s just another regular-season game between two of the best in the league. Denver comes off a loss Friday night to the Kings on the road, and the Bucks still continue to try and find their footing with new head coach Doc Rivers, who made his head coaching debut a few weeks ago in a loss to Denver.

The game starts very shortly, at 8:00 p.m. ET in the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. If you’re looking to catch a live stream of the game online, here is all you need to know.

Is there a free Nuggets vs Bucks live stream?

NBA League Pass on YouTube TV.

If you happen to be outside of the local market for tonight’s game, then the answer is going to be no, unfortunately. Sling TV does not offer a free trial, and although Fubo and YouTube TV do, you are still going to need to add on a NBA League Pass to access an out-of-market game, and that also does not have a free trial currently. To maybe cushion the blow of this, there is a lucrative deal going on where NBA League Pass is a one-time payment of $50 through YouTube TV for the remainder of the season. Get the deal before it’s gone to enjoy all the out-of-market action you want.
