As you likely know by now, the Warriors and Cavaliers will meet for a third straight year in the NBA Finals, pitting the NBA’s two best teams head to head in a rubber match of sorts.

The best-of-seven series begins Thursday, June 1 and will end no later than June 18, with a 2–2–1–1–1 travel format. Golden State has home court advantage and enters as the favorite, with Kevin Durant added to the mix. LeBron James will push back looking for his third championship.

The Warriors won Game 1 113–91.

All games will be broadcast nationally on ABC and stream here on WatchESPN. Full schedule is below.
