NBA basketball ESPN how to watch week 2 | Updated: 2018-10-20 09:00:22

Week 1 is officially in the books and it wasn't without drama. The Houston Rockets -- who went 65-17 last season to clinch the No. 1 spot in the West -- lost their home opener, the Phoenix Suns shocked the Mavs, and LeBron James officially debuted in purple and gold. But with Week 2 rapidly approaching, it's time to look forward to how you can watch the NBA action with ESPN this week.

On Thursday it's the battle of the rookies in Georgia when Trey Young and the Atlanta Hawks host Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks at 10:15am (AEDT). After getting himself some court time in the Mavs' opening game loss in Phoenix, Aussie Ryan Broekhoff will again hope to see some valuable NBA minutes.

Later, more Aussies are in action when Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers visit Matthew Dellavedova and the Milwaukee Bucks at the newly-opened Fiserv Forum at 12:35pm (AEDT), in a clash between two of the most exciting young squads in the East.

Friday is all about teams expecting to contend for playoff spots, with the Oklahoma City Thunder hosting the Boston Celtics in the early game at 11:00am (AEDT), while LeBron and the Los Angeles Lakers host Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets at the Staples Center from 1.00pm (AEDT).

The weekend action begins on Saturday at 10.30am (AEDT) when Joe Ingles and the Utah Jazz play host to the reigning NBA champs, the Golden State Warriors, while on Sunday, settle in for a massive Western Conference clash when the Lakers visit Texas to take on DeMar DeRozan and his new teammates at the San Antonio Spurs at 11.30pm (AEDT).
