As the highly-anticipated Apple Watch begins to land in the hands of consumers, NBA fans won’t have to wait long at all to use the device to follow their favorite team, or the league at large.

The NBA Game Time app was launched on Friday, and is ready for those who want to follow all of the playoff action right from their wrist.

Some of the app’s features will allow fans to:

– Keep up with live action and scores every night across the NBA

– Check schedules for all 30 NBA teams, including the full NBA Playoff picture

– Choose your favorite team’s games and have them automatically show up in the scoreboard in the Glance 

– Use Force Touch to easily navigate the league schedule and pick a game to follow in the Glance

– Start following a game on your Apple Watch – and get the full experience on your phone with Handoff without missing a beat.

In addition to the league app, 20 teams are ready with club-specific apps, with additional teams to be added in the very near future.

It’s just one more way for fans to stay engaged in real time with NBA playoff basketball, or to keep up with all of the latest news from their favorite NBA squad.
