Best Basketball Apps For Stats & News

Official NBA App

Official NBA app

The official app from the NBA and an absolute hub of content for NBA fans. The app is called “live scores and news” but that really undersells it. This app is a must-download for NBA fans! The app mixes free content with a premium subscription.

If you are a casual fan or just looking for the same stats to help your NBA betting picks then the free version is fine. The premium version opens up more paid content and exclusive interviews and highlights.

NBA Live: Basketball scores

Nba live scores and data app

This could be the app for you if you are looking for an alternative to the official app. The NBA live scores app is all about the data and less about the news (and premium content). The app has live scores of lots of basketball leagues from around the world.

The notifications are quick and the app has play-by-play data. There is also a lot of extensive player data and team data as well as the usual leaderboards.

On Android, the app is called “NBA live”
