Warriors vs Rockets live stream: Can you watch for free?

In a crucial matchup that will largely determine the final play-in spot in the West, the Golden State Warriors travel to the Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets tonight.

The game starts at 20:00 ET. If you live in the market, it will be televised on NBC Sports Bay Area (in Warriors markets) or Space City Home Network (Rockets markets). If you’re out of the market, it won’t be televised anywhere. However, wherever you are in the US, there are plenty of ways to watch a free live stream of the big game.

Is There a Free Warriors vs Rockets Live Stream?

If you live in a Rockets market, there are only two live TV streaming services offering Space City Home Network: Fubo (“Pro” channel package) and DirecTV Stream (“Choice” channel package or higher). Luckily both come with a seven-day free trial, so you can try either one and watch tonight’s game without having to pay anything.

For those living in Warriors markets, Fubo and DirecTV Stream will work there too. You can also try YouTube TV (“Basic Package”), which doesn’t have many regional sports networks across the country but thankfully has NBC Sports Bay Area.

If this game is out of your market, you should keep an eye on it NBA League Tickets. We’re nearing the end of the season, so prices for the rest of the year are only $15 total, but there’s still a free seven-day line available if you haven’t used it yet.

You can also get the League Pass Amazon Prime Channel. The deal is the same as regular League Pass–$15 for the rest of the season, but you can watch it for free for seven days if you haven’t used it before.

A virtual private network (VPN) hides your IP address and connects you to a server in another country of your choice. This makes you appear–digitally–as if you are in that country, allowing you to access content that would otherwise be blocked because of your location. In short, you can use a VPN to watch Fubo, DirecTV Stream, YouTube TV, NBA League Pass, or Amazon Prime from abroad.

There are a lot of good VPNs out there, but we’ll give it a try NordVPN to get started. It’s safe, fast and very easy to use, plus it has a 30-day money-back guarantee, which reduces any risk.
