How to Watch 2023-24 NBA Regular Season Games Live on TNT Without Cable

The 2023-24 NBA regular season has begun on TNT. The network will once again air games on Tuesday and Thursdays this season. Here's how to watch

Raymond McCain, Phil Owen

For the 40th consecutive year, Turner Sports will broadcast live NBA games when the 2023-24 regular season tips off on TNT. 

This season has no shortage of storylines. Can LeBron, playing in his 20th NBA campaign, make another championship run with the Lakers and cement his GOAT status? Can Victor Wembenyama, the latest generational talent to enter the NBA, make an impact during his very first season with the Spurs? Most of all: Can any team do anything to slow down the juggernaut triple-double machine that is Nikola Jokic? 

The NBA schedule is looking a little bit different than usual this season with the addition of the new in-season tournament that will take place during the 2023 part of the calendar. The tournament will start with group play--games will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays, with TNT getting the Tuesday games and ESPN getting the Friday ones. Once the brackets are set with the winners for each group, the whole quarterfinals round, along with one of the two semifinal games, will air on TNT, with the title game on ABC.

Schedule Highlights

Below are some of the highlights of the NBA on TNT for the 2023-24 season, and you can see the full schedule at the bottom of the page.
