Jazz vs Pelicans live stream: how to watch the NBA restart online from anywhere


The NBA is back and tonight’s Jazz vs Pelicans game is the league’s first since shutting down due to Covid-19 back in March.

The NBA will use Microsoft Teams to virtually seat fans courtside


The NBA is not the first league to use a video conferencing app to try its best to recreate the feeling of a packed arena in the era of COVID-19. Some leagues have even thought of more creative solutions to the prospect of spectatorless games. In Japan, SoftBank will use Boston Dynamics’ cute but terrifying Spot robot to cheer at Fukuoka Hawks home games. Moreover, this isn’t the first time Microsoft has waded its way into professional sports.

The company’s Surface tablets famously gained notoriety in 2016 when New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick smashed his device during a game against the Buffalo Bills. “I’m done with tablets,” Belichick said when he was asked about the incident. “I just can’t take it anymore.” For their part, most NBA fans will likely just be happy to see their favorite players return to the hardcourt, even if it means the games look and sound a bit different.  Read More

The NBA is using Microsoft Teams to bring basketball fans courtside


The National Basketball Association (NBA) is using Microsoft Teams’ new Together Mode to place basketball fans courtside in a virtual experience during live games. Microsoft only just revealed Together Mode for Teams earlier this month, and it uses AI to segment your face and shoulders and place you together with other people in a virtual space.

The NBA is using this new Microsoft Teams mode combined with 17-foot tall LED screens that will wrap around basketball arenas to put fans back next to players. Fans will be able to react in real time, and players will be able to see and hear those reactions. These virtual stands will include more than 300 fans using Together Mode to sit side by side with each other virtually in Microsoft Teams. Fans will be able to watch a live feed of the game within Teams alongside a view of each other. Read More
