The NBL grand final series will go to a deciding fifth game on Saturday, March 31 with Melbourne United and the Adelaide 36ers set to fight it out for the right to be crowned champions in a winner-takes-all battle.

This is The Roar‘s guide to streaming the match online and watching it on TV, with tip-off set for 6pm (AEDT) at Hisense Arena.

The home team have won each game so far during the series, with United taking Game 1 and 3, the 36ers 2 and 4, forcing a fifth fixture.

Adelaide will have to buck the trend if they want to stop United from backing up their minor premiership with a premiership though, with Game 5 to be played at Hisense Arena, which will likely be sold out.

Their coverage will begin at 5:30pm (AEDT), allowing for a half-hour pre-game show.
