The NBA Saturday Primetime is presented by none other than La Quinta. It is mainly a presentation of the best Saturday night NBA games which were produced by ESPN but are being televised on ABC. The program originally debuted on January 23rd, 2016 as an eight-game slate mainly to update the audience on the best that the 2015-2016 season has to offer.

Streaming NBA Sunday Showcase on ABC

Apparently aired every Sunday night, the show is presented by State Farm and BBVA. It is mainly a detailed presentation of all the Sunday afternoon broadcasts of NBA games produced by ESPN but shown on ABC.

Both shows feature some of the best action that the NBA has to offer which is why it’s tuned into by millions of viewers each week. However, the time slot can collide with a couple of your weekend plans especially if going out with your first love is priority no. 1. But don’t let that get in the way of watching the NBA when you can stream the shows online.
