The NBA has scheduled the Eastern Conference finals with one semifinal Game 7 still to be played this weekend.

Game 1 of the East finals will tip off Wednesday. The series will run as late as July 5 if a Game 7 is necessary.

Game Date Matchup Time (ET)
1 June 23 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.
2 June 25 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.
3 June 27 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.
4 June 29 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.
5* July 1 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.
6* July 3 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.
7* July 5 76ers/Hawks vs. Bucks 8:30 p.m.

*If necessary

If the 76ers defeat the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, Philadelphia will boast home-court advantage in the conference finals. That means the 76ers would have guaranteed home dates for Games 1, 2, 5, and 7.

However, if the Hawks advance, the Milwaukee Bucks will have home-court advantage.

The schedule for the series between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers was set immediately following the latter's Game 6 win over the Utah Jazz on Friday. The Clippers are playing in their first Western Conference finals in franchise history.
