Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans kick off the NBA’s Christmas Day schedule with a game against the Miami Heat on Friday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Pelicans started the season with a come-from-behind victory over the Toronto Raptors in Tampa, outscoring the Raptors by 20 in the third quarter to overturn a halftime deficit. The Heat dropped their opening game on the road against the Magic, thanks to a dismal turnover total (22) and off scoring nights from Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro.

Here’s when you should tune in to see the game on Christmas Day:

  • Date: Dec. 25
