NBA Live Streaming Guide
Basketball fans can watch and bet on this season's NBA action live online with the bet365 live streaming
bet365 stream more than 70,000 events over the course of the year, and NBA games are scheduled to be streamed live throughout the season.
You may find some restrictions based on where you are in the world (bet365 use your IP address to present the events available to you, and television rights mean some games are not available in certain countries), but it's safe to say that you're spoilt for choice.
Away from the NBA, live basketball from the Euroleague and other leagues around the world are also available to watch and bet on live.
Live Streaming is free of charge. However, you must have a funded Sports account, or alternatively have placed a bet within the last 24 hours, in order to view the streams.
Picture quality is generally very good, and you can stream on your desktop PC, or on your mobile/tablet device (Android, iPhone or iPad).
Details of all live basketball streams for the next few days can be found below:
NBA Odds - To Win Outright
The Golden State Warriors remain the bookmakers' favourites to regain the Larry O'Brien Trophy ahead of this week's action, despite losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals last season.
Golden State took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and was poised to win a second-straight crown, but Cleveland swept the next three games to secure its maiden title.
The Warriors look even more formidable this season after Kevin Durant opted to join forces with fellow All-Stars Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green at Oakland instead of re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Cavs are second favourites with the bookies at time of writing, ahead of the San Antonio Spurs.
