NBA basketball ESPN how to watch week 3 | Updated: 2018-10-28 08:00:15

Another week of NBA action is behind us but a slate of mouth-watering matchups awaits Australian viewers in Week 3. Headlined by two clashes between last year's first-round playoff opponents, the action on the floor is going to look more like that from June than that from early November.

So without further ado, it's time to look at how you can watch the NBA with ESPN this week.

On Thursday, the action kicks off in the Big Apple when the New York Knicks host the Indiana Pacers at the Garden at 11.15am (AEDT). That match is followed at 1.35pm (AEDT) by Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns hosting the San Antonio Spurs -- who again look like a playoff-calibre team after their hot start to the year. Patty Mills is showing sings of being in career-best form, while the addition of DeMar DeRozan has added another dynamic edge to the evergreen Spurs.

On Friday, it's all about those first-round playoff teams from last year, with the Boston Celtics hosting the Milwaukee Bucks at 11.00am (AEDT), followed by Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers taking on Anthony Davis and the Pelicans in Rip City.

The weekend action begins in the nation's capital on Saturday when the Washington Wizards host Steven Adams and the Oklahoma City Thunder at 11.15am (AEDT). That match is followed at 1.35pm (AEDT) by a massive showdown in Oakland between the Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves.

The on-screen action concludes on Sunday at midday (AEDT) with a massive contest between two Western Conference hopefuls; can Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles and the Utah Jazz stop Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets? The Nuggets have started their 2018-19 campaign with a bang and will be hell-bent on making the playoffs after just missing out last season.
