The BBC has acquired rights to screen a selection of NBA Games free-to-air for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
The games will be shown alongside Sky Sports, who hold the rights to show a wider range of fixtures this season.
Thursday night’s NBA Paris Game between Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons will be the first to be shown on both Sky and the BBC. BBC coverage starts at 8pm on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
The BBC will show four regular season games, two play-off games, one Conference Finals game and one NBA Finals game live. There will also be selected highlights and an end-of-season review show.
Sky secured the rights to 135 live games at the beginning of the season. Additionally, basketball fans in the UK can also access full coverage on the NBA TV streaming service with the NBA League Pass.
Thursday’s Paris Game sees NBA return to Europe for the first time since 2020.
The US Basketball season runs until mid-April.
