We are used to New York vs. Boston rivalries in baseball with the Yankees and Red Sox, but now it’s the NBA’s turn with the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics facing off in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. The Celtics have been red hot since January and are the favorites in this series as the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference. However, this is a series that could easily go 6 or 7 games. The #7 seed Nets are coached by 18 year NBA veteran point guard Steve Nash, and we have no doubt that Brooklyn will play with the attitude and toughness their head coach brought to the court in his playing days. In this post, I will walk you through the best options for live streaming the Nets vs. Celtics series, plus list the live TV streaming services currently offering free trials.

How to live stream Nets vs. Celtics series 2022

Sling TV – budget pick

With the cost of everything on the rise, we put Sling Orange as the top pick here, because at $35 per month, the platform is a rare good deal in the streaming world.

Sling Orange gets you: ESPN, and TNT, as well as ESPN 3. The platform doesn’t carry ABC, but there is a workaround.

ESPN 3 is important because you can use your Sling TV login credentials to access the ESPN 3 simulcast of ABC’s NBA playoff coverage. This extra step isn’t convenient, but it saves money over other live TV streaming services.

You go to the ESPN app, select the watch icon, and follow prompts to login with your TV provider. Use your Sling credentials and boom, you have access to ABC’s NBA coverage.


fuboTV is another option for live streaming the Nets vs. Celtics series. The major drawback is that fuboTV lacks TNT, so NBA fans won’t get complete coverage for this series on fuboTV.

fuboTV does carry NBC Sports Boston so Celtics fans can watch next season’s regular season on fuboTV.

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV is another great option for watching the Nets vs. Celtics series. The platform carries ABC, ESPN, and TNT so NBA fans can watch not only this series, but all of the NBA Playoffs, and with no need to take the extra step of tuning into the ESPN 3 simulcast.

Hulu + Live TV carries NBC Sports Boston for Celtics fans that want an NBA streaming solution beyond just the playoffs.

DirecTV Stream

DirecTV Stream carries ABC, ESPN, and TNT, all the channels you need to watch the entire Nets vs. Celtics series.

DirecTV Stream is unique in that it is the only live TV streaming provider that carries both NBC Sports Boston, and the YES Network, the regional sports network for the Nets and Yankees regular seasons.
