Filipino fans of the National Basketball Association (NBA) will finally get some “NBA action” as ABS-CBN Sports brings the first-ever NBA 2K Players Tournament to free TV on S+A this April 16, with livestreaming on iWant.

Headlining the inaugural 2K20 tournament organized by the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) in partnership with videogame company 2K and the NBA were erstwhile champion and MVP Kevin Durant from the Brooklyn Nets, ice-cold scorer Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks, All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell of Utah Jazz, former Los Angeles Lakers’ big man DeMarcus Cousins, and Phoenix Suns’ hot shooter Devin Booker.

Booker emerged victorious in the event for a cause, which brought players and fans together, albeit only online, as the global pandemic caused suspension of sporting events, including NBA games. His $100,000 cash prize went to a charity of his choice.

Watch NBA stars try to replicate their winning ways in the court in the popular video game starting with the first round match-ups on Thursday (April 16), 1:30 pm featuring Kevin Durant vs. Derrick Jones Jr. followed by Patrick Beverley vs. Hassan Whiteside. At 4 pm, it’s Rui Hachimura vs. Donovan Mitchell followed by DeMarcus Cousins vs. Andre Drummond.

The quarterfinal round on Friday (April 17), 1:30 pm features Hachimura vs. Booker and Jones Jr. vs. Harrell, followed by Ayton vs. Young then Beverley vs. Drummond at 4 pm.

The semifinals match between Booker and Harrell will be on Saturday (April 18), 1:30 pm, while Beverley and Ayton’s fight for the last seat in the Finals airs at 4 pm.

The final round between teammates Booker and Ayton will air on Sunday (April 19) at 4 pm. The games will also be on replay every weekday at 11 am beginning April 23 after “The Score.”

Apart from the “NBA 2K Players Tournament,” hoops fans can also enjoy more competitive sports action by reliving classic games from the UAAP and NCAA on “S+A Encore.”
