ABS-CBN S+A airs NBA games and shows on Free TV

Filipino basketball fans will get to join the rest of the world in welcoming the 72nd season of the National Basketball Association (NBA) as ABS-CBN begins its free TV telecast of the world’s greatest basketball league with the LIVE airing of the much-anticipated Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics game at 8 am on S+A this Wednesday (October 18).

The game, which will have a same-day replay at 12 nn and on primetime at 10:30 pm on S+A, will be a great test for the Celtics’ new Big Three of Al Horford, Gordon Hayward, and Kyrie Irving as they face a retooled Cavaliers squad that has added former Celtics Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder, former MVP Derrick Rose, and former Finals MVP Dwyane Wade to help Lebron James reach his eighth straight Finals.

On Friday (October 20), fans will get a first taste of the Lonzo Ball experience as the Purple and Gold of the Los Angeles Lakers take on their cross-town rivals Los Angeles Clippers LIVE at 10:30 am, with a replay on primetime at 6 pm. The much-hyped second overall pick will have to lead a young team that includes Fil-Am star Jordan Clarkson against a Clippers team that still boasts of a formidable frontcourt of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, and ballyhooed international star Milos Teodosic.

On Saturday (October 21), the Joel Embiid-led Philadelphia 76ers will challenge the Celtics in the return of #NBASabaDos on ABS-CBN at 8:30 am with a replay on S+A at 11:30 am and on primetime at 6:30 pm on S+A. On Sunday (October 22), defending champions Golden State Warriors will take their Steph Curry and Kevin Durant shows to the Memphis Grizzlies’ den at the FedEx Forum to face Marc Gasol and Mike Conley LIVE at 8 am with a replay at 11:30 am and on primetime at 6:30 pm on S+A. Wrapping up the first week of NBA offerings on Monday (October 23) is Minnesota Timberwolves, featuring transferee Jimmy Butler versus the powerhouse Oklahoma City Thunder led by MVP Russell Westbrook and All-Stars Paul George and Carmelo Anthony LIVE at 7 am with same day replay at 12 nn and 6pm on S+A.

S+A programs are mirrored on S+A HD SKYcable 166 so fans can also catch the games in high definition on cable.
