The Golden State Warriors ended the regular season as the best team in the history of the NBA in terms of record. The Houston Rockets made it into the playoffs by winning their last game. These two teams face off in the first round of the playoffs both looking to prove entirely different things. The Warriors want to close out their record-breaking season by winning a title and the Rockets want to prove they are a talented team who just managed to underperform in the regular season.

It will be a great match up between some high-powered superstars and will surely feature quite a bit of offense from both sides. Even if you cut cable you won’t want to miss any of the action and below we have all the options you need to watch the Warriors vs Rockets online the entire series.

Combine an Antenna and OTA DVR for an Ideal Setup for ABC Broadcasts

An antenna is another way to watch the Warriors vs Rockets streaming live, since it picks up the broadcast from ABC. Our recommend antenna, the Mohu Leaf 50, picks up over-the-air network broadcasts from other channels as well like CBS, NBC, and FOX. All of these channels can be watched right on your TV and the uncompressed HD makes for an even better picture than most cable subscribers.

If you hate watching a game and missing a big play or sitting through commercials than the DVR could be a huge asset for you. You can still use a DVR with the antenna by getting an over-the-air DVR like the Tablo. All traditional features are included (record, rewind, pause, etc..), but you can also use the Tablo to watch a Warriors vs Rockets live stream. It connects your antenna’s reception to the internet, allowing you to stream live TV on your computer, phone, or tablet.
