NEW YORK – The National Basketball Association (NBA), Turner Sports and Yahoo Sports will debut a new live nightly studio show, The Bounce, available exclusively on Yahoo Sports and the Yahoo Sports app on iOS and Android beginning Monday, Jan. 21, with a special 5-8 p.m. ET launch.

This built-for-mobile show is part of a multiyear deal and will be the first of its kind in market, offering a nightly pulse of the league through expert analysis from a roster of hosts along with in-progress highlights, a live scoreboard, social media integrations, and behind-the-scenes footage.
