TNT will host Sunday’s first-round NBA playoff matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics with tip-off set for 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the TD Garden in Boston and air on YES2 in the Nets market and on NBC Sports Boston in the Celtics 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 Nets appeared to be on their way to a first-round sweep after winning by double-digits in Games 1 and 2. James Harden and Kevin Durant showed out in Game 3 and combined for 80 of Brooklyn’s 119 points, but Kyrie Irving struggled in his return to TD Garden. Irving scored 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting, and the Nets shot 45% from the field as a team in a 125-119 loss. Brooke's big three will look to end its road trip on a high note before returning home for Game 5.

Jayson Tatum finally woke up in Game 3 after shooting 28% from the field in the first two matchups of the series. He scored 50 points to go along with 6 rebounds and 7 assists en route to the Celtics’ first win of the series. Kemba Walker was ice cold and scored 6 points on 3-of-14 shooting, but the rest of Boston’s starters — Evan Fournier, Tristan Thompson, and Marcus Smart — tallied at least 17 points apiece. The Celtics will need major contributions from more than Tatum and Walker to keep up with Brooklyn on offense. Taking advantage of home-court advantage will be key to extending the series.
