If the Blazers vs Mavericks game is in your market, you can watch a live stream via FuboTV or Hulu with Live TV. If it’s out of your market, you can watch a live stream via Amazon Prime or NBA.com. More details can be found below.
The Portland Trail Blazers (1-1) will travel to the American Airlines Center in Dallas to take on the undefeated Dallas Mavericks (2-0).
The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET. Here’s how to watch a live stream of the Blazers vs Mavericks on your computer, phone or streaming device, with the options being dependent on whether or not the game is in your market:
If the Game is in Your Market
The game will be televised locally on either NBC Sports Northwest (Blazers market) or Fox Sports Southwest (Mavericks market). If you don’t have cable, you can watch either of those channels live online via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
For those who live in local markets, NBC Sports Northwest and Fox Sports Southwest are among the 95-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle, which is largely tailored towards sports.
You can start a free seven-day trial of FuboTV right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Blazers vs Mavericks on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other supported device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch the game live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which will allow you to watch any game on-demand within three days of its conclusion, even if you don’t record it.
For those who live in local markets, NBC Sports Northwest and Fox Sports Southwest are part of the 60-plus live TV channels included with Hulu With Live TV, which also comes with Hulu’s huge on-demand streaming TV and movie library.
You can sign up for Hulu with Live TV right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Blazers vs Mavericks on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch the game live, Hulu With Live TV comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as the option to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of space and the ability to fast-forward through commercials.
If The Game is Out of Your Market
This is ultimately the same as regular NBA League Pass (more info on that below), but this is the preferred option because you can watch games on Amazon’s digital platforms rather than NBA’s. The latter has had user experience and buffering issues in the past.
Whether you already have Amazon Prime or you start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch every out-of-market, non-nationally televised NBA game via Amazon Prime’s NBA League Pass channel. A free trial is available until October 29, meaning you can watch this game at no cost.
You can sign up for both Amazon Prime and the NBA League Pass channel right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Blazers vs Mavericks and all out-of-market games on your computer via the Amazon website, or you can watch on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other streaming device via the Amazon Video app.
Again, this is mostly the same as the Amazon Prime option above, with the big different being you’ll watch through NBA’s digital platforms rather than Amazon’s. There are also a few different pricing options when signing up for League Pass through NBA.com (one-team pass, all-team pass or all-team, commercial-free pass), but they also have a free trial through October 29.
You can sign up right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Blazers vs Mavericks and all out-of-market games on your computer via the NBA website, or you can watch on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other compatible device via the NBA app.
Blazers vs Mavericks Preview
The Mavericks have won their first tow games of the season, and are fresh from a 123-116 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. The Mavs haven’t had a 2-0 start since the 2004-2005 season, so things are certainly looking up in Dallas. Luka Doncic is a big reason why. Doncic notched a triple-double against the Pelicans, scoring 25 points while grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out 10 assists.
While Doncic is also the team’s leader in both rebounds and assists, he’s getting help from several of his teammates. Kristaps Porzingis is chipping in 23.5 points a game, while Jalen Brunson is averaging 11.5 and Delon Wright is adding 12.5 off the bench.
On defense, the Mavericks are giving up 108 points a game, and they’ll be facing a Portland team that’s scoring an average of 111.
The Trail Blazers are coming off a 122-112 victory over the Sacramento Kings after dropping their season opener to the Denver Nuggets. Guard Damian Lillard led all scorers with 35 points. Lillard is the team’s leading scorer, averaging 33.5 points per game. He leads a group that features four other players who average double-digits in scoring: Hassan Whiteside is averaging 19 ppg, C.J. McCollum is averaging 15.5 ppg, Rodney Hood is averaging 10.5 and Anfernee Simons is chipping in 10 ppg.
While the Trailblazers are averaging 11 points per game, they’re also giving up 110 points in each contest. They will need to buckle down against this touch Dallas team, and they’ll have to pay special attention to Doncic. If they can contain the Mavericks dangerous guard, they have a shot at sneaking out of Dallas with a victory.
The Mavericks and Trail Blazers were 2-2 against each other last year, splitting the season series.
