ESPN will host Friday’s NBA playoff matchup between the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks with tip set for 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this second-round NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN 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 76ers face a must-win game after blowing leads in Games 4 and 5 to go down 3-2. Joel Embiid struggled from the field in Game 4 and Ben Simmons missed 10 free throws in Game 5. Philadelphia needs a massive showing to avoid an embarrassing playoff exit.

The Hawks are showing resiliency and flair, overcoming multiple double-digit leads to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 advantage. Atlanta has a chance to close things out at home and Trae Young will look to add another playoff series win to his growing legacy.
