How to Watch the Knicks at Cavs, Pelicans at Lakers & More NBA Games on January 15, 2021




, ,

Week 4 of the 2020-21 NBA season continues with 8 games tonight as we head into the weekend. 10 games were scheduled for tonight, but due to the NBA’s COVID protocols, they have been postponed for an unknown date.

Tonight’s lineup features the 2020 NBA Champions, the 2020 top overall draft pick, the 2020 MVP,  and the 2019 Rookie of the Year, so it is safe to say that stars will be on the floor tonight. There will be some fans in attendance at select games; however, cord cutters can find out how to watch all of tonight’s NBA action below.
