NBA Playoffs: Cavaliers vs. Hawks Eastern Conference Finals schedule

New, comments

Here's when and where the Cavs will play the Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals.

With the Atlanta Hawks beating the Washington Wizards and advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers now have an opponent.

In the conference finals, the Cavs, as the No. 2 seed, will not have home court advantage. This of course means that the Cavs will start on the road and if the series goes seven games, would have to win on the road in a hypothetical Game 7.

The Cavs have off until Wednesday's Game 1 and will come into the series with five days of rest. That could be huge for Kyrie Irving, who has been battling knee and foot injuries that largely limited his effectiveness in the second round. Here is the full schedule for Cavs-Hawks.

Game 1 -- Wed. May 20, Cleveland at Atlanta, 8:30 p.m., TNT

Game 2 -- Fri. May 22, Cleveland at Atlanta, 8:30 p.m. TNT

Game 3 -- Sun. May 24, Atlanta at Cleveland, 8:30 p.m., TNT

Game 4 -- Tue. May 26, Atlanta at Cleveland, 8:30 p.m., TNT

Game 5 * -- Thu. May 28, Cleveland at Atlanta, 8:30 p.m., TNT

Game 6 * -- Sat. May 30, Atlanta at Cleveland, 8:30 p.m. TNT

Game 7 * -- Mon. June 1, Cleveland at Atlanta, 8:30 PM, TNT
