NBA Finals schedule announced: When do the Cavs play next?

New, comments

The Cavs don't yet have an opponent, but we know when the games will be

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Here we go. Four wins stand in the way of the Cleveland Cavaliers and their first ever NBA championship. To paraphrase LeBron James from last night, you can't guarantee they will get those wins, but you can be sure this team will do everything it can to get close. While most people assume the Cavs will meet the Golden State Warriors, destroyer of worlds for this NBA season, they still need one more win over the Houston Rockets.

Either way, you can plan your schedule now:

All times are Eastern.

Game 1 – Thu  June  4 Cleveland at Golden State/Houston   9:00PM

Game 2 – Sun  June  7 Cleveland at Golden State/Houston   8:00PM

Game 3 – Tue  June  9 Golden State/Houston at Cleveland   9:00PM

Game 4 – Thu  June 11 Golden State/Houston at Cleveland   9:00PM

Game 5 * Sun  June 14 Cleveland at Golden State/Houston   8:00PM

Game 6 * Tue  June 16 Golden State/Houston at Cleveland   9:00PM

Game 7 * Fri  June 19 Cleveland at Golden State/Houston   9:00PM

Obviously, Games 5, 6, and 7 will only happen if neither team has reached four wins.
