NBA: Golden State Warriors at Sacramento Kings Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Worry not, Phoenix Suns fans! You’re one step closer to having another option at your fingertips as you watch your favorite squad claw its way back into Western Conference relevancy. For the first time in NBA history, a regular season game will be streamed on Facebook Live.

Sunday’s game between the Kings and Golden State Warriors marks Sacramento’s fourth annual “Bollywood Night,” a yearly celebration of all things Indian culture.

“Technology allows us to enhance the fan experience – in the arena and around the world like never before,” said Kings Owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadivé. “Through this groundbreaking live broadcast, we’ll be able to engage new fans, introduce many to the excitement of NBA basketball for the first time, and share the Kings cultural showcase that Sacramento-based fans enjoy every year – through an incredibly powerful network that brings people together.”

The game will be streamed on the Facebook pages for both teams. You’ll get the full experience including the Sacracmento Kings Dancers, special guests and the in-arena games and entertainment. Introductions and graphics on the scoreboard will be done in a Bollywood style. Sunday’s tip is scheduled for 6p PT.
