Cavaliers-Nets: How to Watch, Stream & Bet NBA Play-in Tournament on TNT


April 12

It’s game one of the NBA play-in tournament with Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers visiting Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets.

Heading into the season, you’d have gotten some strange looks if you had projected the Nets to be in a play-in game scenario, but that’s where they ultimately ended up with a season surrounded by injuries and off-the-court drama.

Kyrie Irving and Durant will look to use their playoff experience (and sheer talent) to fend off an up-and-coming Cleveland Cavaliers squad.

The winner of this game will move on to the playoffs to take on the second-seeded Boston Celtics, while the loser will have a second chance to get in and face the winner of the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets matchup.
