The Los Angeles Lakers don't yet know their opponents for the Western Conference finals, but they at least know for when to prepare.

After the Denver Nuggets stunned the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday to force a Game 7, the NBA released its schedule for the Western Conference finals, according to The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears.

Game Date Time Home Away
1 Sept. 18 9:00 p.m. ET Lakers Clippers/Nuggets
2 Sept. 20 7:30 p.m. ET Lakers Clippers/Nuggets
3 Sept. 22 9:00 p.m. ET Clippers/Nuggets Lakers

5* Sept. 26 9:00 p.m. ET Lakers Clippers/Nuggets
6* Sept. 28 TBD Clippers/Nuggets Lakers

The updated schedule guarantees that the Lakers, who eliminated the Houston Rockets in five games Saturday, will have five full days off before they play again.
