That’s a great deal for those of us who normally just watch on traditional cable but might need to stream once in a while.
Avoid Illegal Live Streams of Warriors Games
If may be tempting to utilize one of those illegal, unauthorized live streams of a Warriors game that promises a free online viewing experience. Most of the time these offers are too good to be true anyway. They ask you to download or install some bogus software that’s actually identity stealing malware (good luck explaining that one to the wife). On top of that, these fake NBA streams aren’t in HD, contain an offending number of graphic advertisements and tend to crap out at just the right moment (like Stephen Curry hitting a late game 3 pointer).
