The NBA on ABC is a presentation of National Basketball Association (NBA) games produced by ESPN, and televised on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC). ABC originally broadcast NBA games from 1965 to 1973. In 2002, NBA games returned to the network as part of a contract signed with the league, along with ESPN.

ABC televises games throughout the regular season, typically starting with a doubleheader on Christmas Day, followed by select games on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons as part of its NBA Saturday Primetime and NBA Sunday Showcase series. ABC then airs up to nine games during the first five weeks of the NBA playoffs, and is the exclusive broadcaster of the NBA Finals.
