The NBA is back for its annual Christmas extravaganza. In 2020, we get five games starting at noon and running until the finale tips at 10:30 p.m. ET. The Golden State Warriors travel to face the Milwaukee Bucks in the second game of the day. ABC will air the matchup at 2:30 p.m. ET.

If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on WatchESPN or on mobile with the ESPN app, both of which require a cable log-in. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the NBA Christmas schedule.

The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.

The Warriors were thumped in Brooklyn to open the season, losing 125-99 to the Nets. The Bucks lost a wild one to the Celtics 122-121 after Jayson Tatum hit a three with 1.5 seconds left and Giannis Antetokounmpo missed a game-tying free throw with 0.4 seconds left. The Bucks are a 10-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and the point total is installed at 232.5.
