Live Stream Rockets At Thunder Free, Without Cable/ESPN — Plus More NBA Playoffs TonightBy Jeremy Evans / April 21, 2017 / Tags: Live Stream, NBA Basketball, Stream Sports
Here’s how to live stream Houston Rockets at OKC Thunder free, without cable, or if you’re in a blackout zone.
Tonight in the NBA post-season playoffs, the Houston Rockets play the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3. The Rockets lead the series 2-0.
Tonight’s game starts at 9:30 PM EST. It will be televised and streamed live on ESPN (login required), fuboTV (7-day free trial or subscription), and Kodi live TV (free). You can also live stream the game on NBA League Pass, but you will need to bypass the blackouts on League Pass in order to get access.
Inn addition to Rockets-Thunder, the Utah Jazz host the LA Clippers at 10:00 for Game 3. That game is also streaming on ESPN. If you don’t have a TV login, here are more ways to watch tonight’s playoff games live online, even for free or without cable.
Live Stream Tonight’s NBA Games Without Cable
If a game you want to stream requires login with a TV provider, but you don’t have one, there are a couple ways you can get access.
First, you can use fuboTV. FuboTV has expanded to cover all major sports, and live streams lots of NBA basketball games. You can get a 7-day free trial to watch tonight’s games for free. To see which games are streaming live on fuboTV tonight, go here.
NBA League Pass
NBA League Pass, the NBA’s official streaming service, is another great option. It will let you live stream games all around the league. Keep reading for how to avoid blackouts so you can watch every game live on League Pass, even local and nationally televised games.
Another option is to use YouTube TV. This is YouTube’s new live TV and sports streaming service. You can stream live sports on ESPN, ABC, FOX, CBS, NBC, and more with a 1-month free trial. The only drawback is that it’s only available in a couple of US cities. But the good news is that even if YouTube TV isn’t available where you are, you can still get access.

Watch NBA Basketball Live Online For Free
You can also live stream NBA games for free — but stay away from those scummy “free live sports!!!” sites. There’s a better way.
One note — whether Kodi is legal is an issue of debate. Yes, the networks and league frown upon watching their content for free. Hey, I’m not here to judge. But it is highly recommended you use a VPN with Kodi to stay private and secure.
To see what you can watch on Kodi, and how to get started, check out our beginner’s guide on how to use Kodi. If you already use it and need help finding the best sources to stream live sports on Kodi, see our list of the best Kodi add-ons. This includes some excellent options to stream live US sports, including NBA basketball.
Bypass NBA Blackouts
If a game you want to stream is blacked out in your area, there is a way to bypass the blackouts and get access.
See How To Bypass NBA Blackouts On NBA League Pass, Sling TV, and PlayStation Vue. This works to watch games that are under a local/regional blackout, as well as national blackout games (those that are televised on national TV, like on ESPN, TNT, or NBA TV).
Watch NBA Live Streams From Anywhere
If you want to watch a live stream or use a streaming service that isn’t available in your area, you can bypass the geo-blockers and get access.
See How To Unblock Live Sports Streams Everywhere. Note that this does not bypass login requirements — only to get around location restrictions.
