NBLxNBA: When and where to watch all games

It’s NBLxNBA time!

After three historic games in 2017, this year there are more games and even more storylines to keep an eye on when our NBL teams take on some of the very best NBA players and teams over the span of an action-packed week.

There’s no doubt our NBL teams will have their work cut out for them, but as Melbourne United showcased against the Oklahoma City Thunder last year, if you can weather the storm and fight for the full 48 minutes, you’re in with a chance.

We will see the likes of Chris Goulding and Casper Ware battling it out against Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, before also taking on Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry. Andrew Bogut and Jerome Randle v Tobias Harris and Lou Williams is another contest with plenty of star power, while Bryce Cotton and Damian Martin v Joe Ingles and Dante Exum will be great to watch.

Nathan Sobey will be hoping to drive his Adelaide 36ers past fellow Aussies Ingles and Exum, while the likes of 2018 NBA Draftt #1 pick DeAndre Ayton, Nikola Jokic, Isaiah Thomas and Jamal Murray will be tough to contain.

With so many mouth-watering games, you need to know when and where to watch – luckily, we’ve got you covered.
