The NBA Conference Finals are underway with just four teams left to compete for the championship after the 2019-2020 NBA season started up again in July in Orlando.

The season was put on pause when a Utah Jazz player tested positive for coronavirus in March. In July, NBA teams and staff came together at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to restart the season, with 22 of 30 teams competing for a spot in the finals.

Now, the LA Lakers are taking on the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference, with the Miami Heat playing the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference.

Here’s how to watch the remaining games without cable.
