The Kings, one of the biggest underdogs of the 2023 NBA Playoff live streams, out-balled the Warriors 118-99 in Friday's Game 6. Sacramento's Malik Monk (28 points) and De'Aaron Fox (26 pts with 11 assists) propelled the team to this decisive game.

On the other side of the court, Stephen Curry's 29 points weren't enough, while Klay Thompson contributed 22 and Kevon Looney added 13. The Warriors' shooters were firing blanks early, down 8-0 in the first three minutes. Golden State shot 37.6 percent from the field overall.

DraftKings, at the time of publication, has this game extremely close, with the moneyline low for both the Warriors (-105) and Kings (-115). So, betting $105 on the Warriors would earn you $100, and a $115 bet on the Kings would also net you $100.

If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package? With the right pick from our best cable TV alternatives, you'll be able to watch it and all of the NBA playoff games. 

But for as much as we like FuboTV, it doesn't have TNT, which has been crucial for playoffs. Though Fubo has ABC and ESPN, and a 7-day free trial.

Instead, you may want to get Sling TV, one of the best streaming services. ABC games will simulcast on ESPN3, which is available through Sling Orange. ABC is also available in select markets for Sling Blue. Those markets are Chicago (WLS), Fresno (KFSN), Houston (KTRK), Los Angeles (KABC), New York (WABC), Philadelphia (WPVI), Raleigh-Durham (WTVD) and San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose (KGO).  All but Fresno, Houston and Raleigh will pay $5 more per month for ABC in either Sling Blue or Sling Orange & Blue.

Oh, and not only is Sling 50% off for the first month is a perfect place to watch all of the NBA playoffs, as ABC games will simulcast on ESPN3. Sling Orange gets you TNT, ESPN, ESPN3, and its Sports Extra pack gets you NBA TV.

Of course, you can also watch the games on the more expensive services, such as YouTube TV ($73 per month, but $63 per month for the first three months), Hulu + Live TV ($70 per month) and DirecTV Stream ($75 per month, down to $65 per month for the first three months).

ABC can be pulled down with one of the best TV antennas.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. Pricing starts at £11.98 for day & mobile month membership, with month-long access for £34.99.

Probably. Aussies can watch the 2023 Playoff live streams on Kayo Sports, a major destination for NBA action. ESPN Australia, if you get it, is another means, but it's unclear if either will host the Warriors vs. Kings live stream.

Kayo offers a 14-day free trial for both its Basic and Premium plans, more than enough time to confirm they're actually showing the games. The Kayo One package costs $25 per month thereafter, and Kayo Basic is $30.

The $35 per month Premium Kayo plan gives you all the same things as the normal plan, but it offers three simultaneous streams. The Basic plan gives you two streams at the same time. 

Not in Australia but usually a Kayo subscriber? You may need a little help from a service such as ExpressVPN.
