The Philadelphia 76ers play host to the Miami Heat in Game 6 of their second-round series on Thursday, and if you’re wondering how you can catch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The Sixers will look to stave off elimination following a bad Game 5 loss in South Florida that pushed them to the brink.

If the Sixers are going to force a Game 7, they must play with much more force. They will have to bring the fight to the Heat and be as aggressive and physical as possible in order to get back into this series. Joel Embiid, who is battling through so many serious injuries, will have to be the one to put the team on his back once more and make sure they can survive for another day.

Here’s when and where you should tune in to see the matchup:
