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

The defending champion Denver Nuggets (33-15) are on the road tonight as they square off against a pretty evenly matched Oklahoma City Thunder (32-15) at the Paycom Center. The game will highlight two of the league’s best players on the court: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who averages 31.3 PPG (third in the league currently), and Nikola Jokic, who has 26.3 PPG on average. A win the other night over the Bucks got Denver to retain second place in the West, but the Thunder sit calmly behind them by half a game in third place. The NBA regular season is long, but this matchup could have some playoff implications in terms of seeding.

Denver and OKC tip off in a few minutes, at 8:00 p.m. ET. If you want to watch the game on a live stream, here is where you can catch it online.

The best way to watch the Thunder vs Nuggets live stream

World Series on FuboTV.

Is there a free Thunder vs Nuggets live stream?

Whether it be Fubo or YouTube TV, there is not much room for the chance of having a free live stream for tonight’s matchup. Yes, there is a Fubo free trial, and if the game is playing on a channel that caters to your local market, then all is alright in that sense. However, to catch all the out-of-market action, NBA League Pass is what you’ll need, and unfortunately, they don’t have a free trial period upon signing up. However, NBA League Pass is still running a deal for the 2023–2024 regular season that you should look into before it’s too late.
