How can I watch NBA TNT games?

TNT will broadcast 65 matchups on the NBA games today schedule this season. You can view them via your local cable provider or streaming services like YouTube TV, as well as on the TNT app.

Why are there 82 NBA games?

After MLB, the NBA games today schedule is one of the longest and most arduous in North American professional sports. From October to April, all 30 teams compete in 82 games — 41 each home and away.

The season is done this way so each team can play division rivals four times, six other teams in their conference four times, the remaining teams in the conference three times, and then a pair of home and away matchups against the fifteen teams from the opposing conference during the season.

However, there have been rumblings in recent years that the length of the NBA season very well could be cut by several games in the near future.
