If the Spurs vs Warriors 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 Golden State Warriors will try to move on in their first game following the loss of two-time MVP Stephen Curry as they host the 3-1 San Antonio Spurs on Friday.
The game is scheduled to start at 10:30 p.m. ET. Here’s how to watch a live stream of the Spurs vs Warriors 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 Fox Sports Southwest (Spurs market) or NBC Sports Bay Area (Warriors 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, Fox Sports Southwest and NBC Sports Bay Area 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 Spurs vs Warriors 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, Fox Sports Southwest and NBC Sports Bay Area 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 Spurs vs Warriors 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.
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 Spurs vs Warriors 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, such as one-team pass, all-team pass or all-team, commercial-free pass.
You can sign up right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the Spurs vs Warriors 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.
Spurs vs Warriors Preview
The Golden State Warriors were already reeling when were dealt a massive blow last time out against the Suns, losing Stephen Curry to a broken left hand. The All-Star guard underwent surgery on Friday for the injury and the team said he will miss at least three months.
The Warriors are off to a 1-3 start, all of their losses coming by double-digits in games that were blowouts. Now with Curry on the mend, the team will have a hard time staying in contention in the competitive Western Conference. The team saw Kevin Durant bolt in free agency and Curry’s Splash Brother Klay Thompson is still recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in the playoffs. On top of that, versatile forward Draymond Green is dealing with a sore back.
“It’s been a tough start for us on many levels, so we’re just trying to find our footing,” coach Steve Kerr said. “This puts us in a tough spot, so we’ll assess it and go from there.”
Much of the leadership will now fall on newly-signed guard D’Angelo Russell, who the team acquired via sign and trade with the Nets in the offseason.
“Definitely trying to take on that leadership role and continue to get better every year with being able to lead guys on what I see and what I’ve been through,” he said. “It’s definitely a similar situation, but it’s going to be tougher. We’ve got a lot of young guys that are going to be forced to mature and step up, so I’m looking forward to it as well. … It’s an opportunity. Go back to the drawing board with the team and the coaching staff, and see what we can do to prepare for each game day in and day out. The big thing I see is just opportunity for a lot of people.”
The Spurs were off to a 3-0 start before losing to the Clippers and Kawhi Leonard last time out. DeMar DeRozan leads the team with 23.8 points per game, while four other Spurs (LaMarcus Aldrige, Derrick White, Bryn Forbes and Dejounte Murray) are averaging double-figures.
Murray, who is coming off ACL surgery, will be held out against the Warriors as the team looks to ease him back into action. He’s contributed a well-rounded stat line of 13 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.
The Warriors are a 7-point home underdog to the Spurs and the total is set at 222. Golden State has won six of the last games played between the squads.
