7 reasons why every NBA fan should follow the Playoffs with the Sportening app


Basketball Network is always on the lookout for the best new sports app to help us provide unrivaled NBA coverage. And after having used most of the top-rated sports apps out there, like ESPN, theScore, BleacherReport, and The Athletic, among others, we finally ran into an app that has it all — Sportening, the best sports app for fans.

The entire team at Basketball Network has been using the app for the past few weeks, and to say that we are delighted would be an understatement. We were so impressed we reached out to them and actually partnered up for the NBA Playoffs (more info below). Sportening is arguably one of the most intuitive apps we have ever used, and here are seven reasons why.

Real-time stats


You will find complete live game details on the app, from comprehensive stats, boxscores, lineups, to team head to heads. Player profiles are another awesome thing, and the ability to sort all statistical categories in the boxscore section.

Follow live games and chat with friends


The app gives you an excellent overview of today's basketball, and current live games, as you can see from the screenshot. One of the coolest things Sportening has to offer is the group chat functionality. Groups are easily made, and anyone can go ahead and create a private group; you can chat with other fans or your friends.
