How to watch the 2019 – 2020 NBA live TV and streaming

Find out how to watch the 2019 - 2020 NBA season on TV and streaming. The regular season kicks off on October 22

For the first time after five years of Golden State Warriors' dominance (which led to the "Bay" team winning three rings), the 2019 - 2020 NBA starts without a must-win favorite. The summer market has revolutionized most of the teams and changed the hierarchies on the court: the Warriors are no longer the favorites for the title. The reason is very simple to explain: on the one hand, the departure of Kevin Durant (who moved to New York, Brooklyn Nets side), on the other hand, the injury of Klay Thompson who will be away from the court for the whole year.

Who is the favorite to raise the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy in June 2020? Analysts give favorites to four teams: the Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and the two Los Angeles teams, the Lakers and Clippers. There will be a lot of attention on the latter two: during the summer they have revolutionized the roster by acquiring Anthony Davis (Lakers), Leonard and Paul George (Clippers).

The first ball will be raised on the night of Tuesday, October 22 (for Italy it is the night between Tuesday and Wednesday) and the regular season will end on April 15, 2020. The Finals will begin on June 4 and a possible Game 7 will be played around June 20. U.S. basketball fans have two options to follow the games of the 2019 - 2020 NBA season on TV: Sky and NBA League Pass. In the first case it is necessary to be subscribed to the Sports package of the satellite broadcaster, in the second one it is necessary to subscribe to the service created directly by the NBA. Also available streaming on SkyGo and on the NBA app.

When the 2019 - 2020 NBA season starts and when it ends

The first game of the regular season is played on the night between Tuesday and Wednesday at 2:00 Italian night between the New Orleans Pelicans (the team of Zion Williamson, the number 1 pick of the NBA draft) and the defending champions of the Toronto Raptors. The final day will be played on April 15, 2020. Then will begin the playoffs and the Finals, whose start is set for June 4, 2020.

Who wins the NBA 2019 - 2020

One of the most unpredictable NBA seasons in recent years. The summer market revolutionized many rosters and reshuffled the cards. On paper, the four title teams are: Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. For the first time in the last five years, the Golden State Warriors do not start with favourable predictions, but they are in the second row ready to take advantage of every good opportunity. The "team of the Bay" lost in summer Kevin Durant (to the Brooklyn Nets), Andre Iguodala (to Memphis) and Klay Thompson due to injury. In their place D'Angelo Russell has arrived.

Behind this lot we find other teams ready to explode and take advantage of any situation: the Toronto Raptors winners last year, Houston that took Westbrook from Oklahoma, Denver, Utah and Boston. Teams with a core of players who have been playing together for a couple of years and are ready for the big jump.
