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
