It's time for the Nuggets vs Suns live stream to cap off the second day of the new NBA season with a rematch of the Western Conference Semifinals. And in this NBA live stream, all eyes are on Phoenix, who made it to the Finals (only to lose) last year.

Nuggets vs Suns channel, time

The Nuggets vs Suns live stream is today (Oct. 19).
• Time — 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT / 3 a.m. BST
• U.S. — Watch on ESPN via Sling  
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The big talk around the Nuggets rests around recent tough love from the team's star Nikola Jokić. The Serbian star called the team's performance 'bad,' before pondering out loud if they're going to lose on Wednesday.

For positive talk, there's Aaron Gordon, who Denver is hoping will deliver the good on the contract he just signed. Now healthier than before, and no longer playing through injury, Gordon just signed a huge deal and expectations are here for more double-doubles. He netted 20 in the 2019-20 season, so Denver expects more of the same. 

Across the court, Devin Booker doesn't have much drama at the Suns — the shooting guard is more occupied with the media's reaction to him mocking his girlfriend Kendall Jenner's pumpkin-carving skills. No, we're not making that up.
