The NBA game of the day – Jazz vs. Pelicans: Here’s how to watch for free
Today, there are only two NBA games, and the biggest one is the Utah Jazz & New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans are twelfth in the Western Conference and snapped their five-game losing streak. A young core lead leads New Orleans by Zion Williams, Lonzo Ball, and Brandon Ingram. While this core is great they are currently twelfth in the Western Conference. The team needs to start clicking if they want any chance to make the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Utah is on a tear. They are third in the Western Conference behind the Los Angeles Lakers & Clippers. Utah is on a five-game winning street and a game behind the Lakers and a half-game behind the Clippers. They’ll be looking to continue their dominance against the Pelicans.
It’s a must-watch game for basketball fans. So the one thing left is: when & where can I watch it?
When is the game?
The New Orleans Pelicans will head to Utah to take on the Jazz at 9 p.m. ET. NBA TV is broadcasting the game nationally with additional local broadcasts on AT&T Sportsnet – Roc for Utah & Fox Sports New Orleans. NBA TV is an additional add-on for most cable packages making it extremely hard to find.
Where to Watch
For those cord-cutters out there, YouTube TV includes NBA TV at no additional cost. If you don’t have a cable package or have another cable alternative like Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV is definitely worth checking into if you’re a sports fan. It also comes with NFL Network, MLB Network, and many other sports channels like all the ESPN & Fox Sports channels.
It also comes standard with unlimited DVR storage and three simultaneous streams. Meaning you don’t have to worry if someone else is watching TV in another room or deleting your favorite game to DVR new games. The last reason is even if you aren’t home, you can take YouTube TV on the go with the app.
NBA League Pass and NBA TV
If you live outside of your team’s market and are a huge basketball fan, NBA League Pass & NBA TV are incredibly worth it. All you need to watch the Jazz vs Pelicans is NBA TV, which is the cheapest option at $40 a year, but spending the extra $50 to get Team Pass is a better option. You’ll have access to every out-of-market game for your favorite team.
However, you won’t get broadcasts on NBA TV, which means you’ll have to have NBA TV to watch the Jazz vs Pelicans — making your total purchase $130 a year. As we said, you’ll need to be outside of your favorite team’s market, so make sure you plug in your ZIP code on NBA League Pass’s website before purchasing.
One of the big advantages to Team Pass is in-stream stats. You’ll easily be able to look up the box score without missing any of the action. It also has a great feature to quickly move between games if you buy League Pass for $150 a year.
If paying for a cable alternative like YouTube TV or NBA League pass is out of the question, there are plenty of ways to Livestream the Jazz vs Pelicans without paying. The first is sportsurge.net. They claim to be the replacement to /r/NBAStreams after Reddit banned the popular streaming subreddits. The only thing to remember is the links won’t populate until about an hour before tipoff.
We also recommended nbastreams.to – it’s more like nflbite.com, which is our favorite site for NFL live streams. The site lists all of the links by most reliable streams and even has a count down timer for when the links will appear. Nbastreams.to also has all the NCAA games making it perfect for any fan of the NBA & college hoops.
