TNT will host Wednesday’s first round NBA playoff matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers with tip off set for 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the STAPLES Center in LA, and will air on Bally Sports SW-DAL in the Mavericks market and on Bally Sports So-Cal in the Clippers market.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Dallas Mavericks are reeling a bit after going up 2-0 in this series. They’ve lost two in a row and are faced with a three-game set to decide who advances. Luka Doncic and Maxi Kleber are both probable for Game 5 on Wednesday, so the team is at full strength. There were also reports that Doncic is feeling a lot better after sustaining a cervical strain which had him questionable for Game 4. So the series heads back to LA where Dallas will need to shake off an awful shooting performance. The Mavs shot 16.7 percent (5-30) from 3-point range in Game 4.

The Los Angeles Clippers appear to have the Mavs right where they want them heading back to Staples Center for Game 5. The Clippers put forth a dominant defensive effort over the weekend to tie the series 2-2, holding the Mavs to, well, see above, and 81 points overall. Kawhi Leonard was methodical in posting a 29-10 double-double while also playing lockdown defense.
