If the Warriors vs Thunder 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.
After being run over by the Los Angeles Clippers, the Golden State Warriors have plenty to prove as the take on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.
The game is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m. ET. Here’s how to watch a live stream of the Warriors vs Thunder 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 Bay Area (Warriors market) or Fox Sports Oklahoma (Thunder 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 Bay Area and Fox Sports Oklahoma 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 Warriors vs Thunder 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 Bay Area and Fox Sports Oklahoma 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 Warriors vs Thunder 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 Warriors vs Thunder 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 Warriors vs Thunder 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.
Warriors vs Thunder Preview
The dynastic run of the Golden State Warriors has finally hit a snag. After five consecutive trips to the NBA Finals, the Warriors are trying to regain their form without injured guard Klay Thompson and departed superstar Kevin Durant, who is now with Brooklyn.
Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers spoiled the Warriors home opener at their new Chase Center, running away with a 145-122 win that really wasn’t even that close.
“This is not a one-off, this is the reality,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said. “There’s going to be nights like this this year. You’ve got to play through it, you’ve got to keep fighting and keep getting better. That’s the plan.
“It doesn’t feel very good,” Kerr added. “Losing stinks. It’s no fun. This is more the reality of the NBA. … The last five years we’ve been living in a world that isn’t supposed to exist. Five years of, if I remember, the best record anybody’s ever had over five years. So this is reality, nine guys 23 or younger, and we’re starting over in many respects.”
The Clippers did whatever they wanted in the game, shooting 62.5% from the field and 18-for-32 from 3-point land.
“We f—ing sucked,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said. “We gotta get better. I’m not a coach, so I’m not about to go watch a film and say, ‘Oh, well we can build on this.’ I really don’t give a damn about what we can build on. We sucked tonight, and we gotta get better overall. And that’s just what it is.”
The Thunder fell to 0-2 after a disappointing 97-85 home loss to the Washington Wizards on Friday. Point guard Chris Paul — who came over in the blockbuster trade that sent Russell Westbrook to Houston — scored just six points in 30 minutes and had four assists and five turnovers.
“If I would have contributed at all we would have won the game, and that’s something, and you can’t sugar coat it,” Paul said.
Steven Adams, who has played his entire career in OKC, said the new group just has to find their flow.
“Just chemistry, mate,” Adams told reporters. “Just chemistry, get a bit more flow. It’s just constantly building. This stuff ain’t easy.”
Golden State is a 4-point road favorite for the game, with a total of just 195.5 currently posted — one of the lowest of the NBA season so far.
