Below is the full schedule for this year’s Finals. The Warriors swept the Spurs to advance to the Finals, and the Cavaliers took care of the Celtics in five games, wrapping up with a 135–102 win on Thursday.

This is the third straight year the Warriors and Cavs will face off in the Finals, with Golden State winning in 2015 and Cleveland rallying back down 3–1 in 2016. Golden State has yet to lose a playoff game this year, and Cleveland has lost just once.

All games will be broadcast nationally on ABC.
