The Warriors took Game 1 of their series against the Rockets on Tuesday. Game 1 between the Cavaliers and Hawks will be held on Wednesday. 

The commercial is narrated by Common and features some of the greatest moments in NBA Finals history, such as Ray Allen's game-tying three-pointer in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals and Julius Erving's legendary reverse layup in Game 4 of the 1980 Finals.
