If the Wizards vs Spurs game is in your market, you can watch a live stream via FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV or Amazon Prime (Spurs market). 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 collecting their first win of the season in Oklahoma City, the Washington Wizards will look to make it two in a row as they take on the DeMar DeRozan and the Spurs on Saturday night.
The game is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. ET. Here’s how to watch a live stream of the Wizards vs Spurs 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 Washington (Wizards market) or KENS-CBS (Spurs 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 Washington and KENS-CBS 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 Wizards vs Spurs 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.
With the game being on CBS for those in San Antonio, Amazon Prime’s CBS channel is a great option if you’re not interested in getting any other channels.
If you already have Amazon Prime or want to start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch all live and on-demand CBS content via the CBS All-Access Amazon Channel, which comes with a seven-day free trial.
Once you’re signed up for both Amazon Prime and the CBS channel, you can then watch a live stream of the Wizards vs Spurs 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.
For those who live in local markets, NBC Sports Washington and KENS-CBS 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 Wizards vs Spurs 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 Wizards vs Spurs 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 Wizards vs Spurs 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.
Wizards vs Spurs Preview
Washington was almost a double-digit underdog against the Thunder on Friday, but led nearly wire-to-wire to pick up the early upset victory.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander helped lead an OKC rally late, but the Wizards fired back with a 14-0 run, sealing the 97-85 victory.
“I told the guys that’s why the fans are going to fall in love with our team — because we give a lot of incredible effort,” Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. “I mean, it’s maximum effort every time on the court, and some of the time, you don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Thomas Bryant had 21 points and 11 rebounds and rookie forward Rui Hachimura scored 19 points to help lead the way. Brooks has liked what he’s seen out of his young players so far.
“It’s hard to teach when you have students who aren’t interested in learning,” Brooks said. “I love the group that we have. We want to get better, and that’s a coach’s dream.”
All-Star Bradley Beal has helped steady the ship for Washington, as fellow star John Wall is expected to miss the entire year recovering from a torn Achilles. Veteran Isaiah Thomas was expected to help fill the void, but he’s been sidelined by some torn ligaments in his thumb.
“It takes time for it to heal,” Brookssaid. “He has the toughness, and he has that chip on his shoulder, but we’re going to do what’s best for him, and we’re going to take that toughness out of the equation. It takes time to heal, and it has.”
It wasn’t pretty, but the Spurs beat the Knicks 120-111. Gregg Popovich’s squad had 21 turnovers, but persevered for he win.
“We don’t want to do that,” Dejounte Murray said after the game. “It was like me and Tim (Duncan were saying): A team that turns the ball over that much, you pretty much lose the game. We got a lot to work on.”
A year ago, Murray’s season ended due to an ACL surgery, but he churned out a strong performance in his return to the court for the regular season. He recorded 18 points, eight rebounds, six assists and three steals.
The Spurs are an 11.5-point favorite against the Wizards. San Antonio won both matchups last year, averaging 130.5 points in those wins.
