Getty MVP candidate Steph Curry looks to get the Warriors back to contention in the West

The Golden State Warriors look to get back to their winning ways as they head into the 2021-22 season with Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson leading the way.

In 2021-22, most Warriors games will be televised in local markets on NBC Sports Bay Area, while some games will be nationally televised on NBA TV (may be out of market only, but those will also be on NBC Sports Bay Area), TNT or ESPN.

But if you don’t have cable, here’s a guide on how you can watch a live stream of every Warriors game live online in 2021-22, including options for both in-market and out-of-market viewers:

Amazon Prime’s NBA League Pass Channel

Note: This is ultimately the same as regular NBA League Pass (more info on that below), but with this option you’ll be able to watch games on the Amazon app, which tends to be available on more devices than the NBA app

After five consecutive NBA Finals trips, the Golden State Warriors come back to earth the last two seasons, failing to make the playoffs. Roster moves and injuries have affected the Warriors but they enter this season with their big three of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green intact and hungry to add to their legacies. The trio will combine forces with young, talented pieces like James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody.

“You can’t just walk into somebody’s face and say: ‘You need to trust me, because I’ve done X, Y and Z,’” Green said. “Quite frankly, I didn’t come into this league, like: ‘Oh, man, you’ve done this. I respect you.’ No, you’ve got to earn my respect. I don’t give a f— what you’ve done. I approach everything like that. Just because I’m Draymond and have done what I’ve done, that does not earn their respect.

“Respect has to be earned, and trust has to be earned.”

The big storyline will be the return of Thompson, who has played since the 2018-19 season due to injuries.

“There’s a lot of excitement about what’s ahead in terms of his journey over the past two-plus years, the fact that he has been grinding all summer long or this past year since the Achilles to prepare his body and his mind for the difficult task of getting close to 100 percent as possible,” Curry told NBC Sports Bay Area. “Just keeping his mentals, to steal Marshawn (Lynch)’s line, keeping that right because that’s a long time for anybody to worry about one thing. Especially when the joy of actually playing the game is taken away.

Curry called the injuries to Thompson — which included an Achilles tear and torn ACL — unfair, keeping the fun-loving sharp-shooter on the sideline.

“I would love to say it’s unfair because it’s just a guy who is so pure about the game, that approaches it the right way,” Curry said. “That is his happy place and when that’s taken away, it’s tough. The first injury is obviously heartbreaking. You know what that road map looks like, that timeline. You’re like, ‘OK, we can deal with that.’ Then, there’s excitement about the draft and retooling, and the day of the draft you get a call that it is an Achilles.”

The Warriors’ odds to win the title sit at +900, behind only the Nets and Lakers.
