The NBA has announced the schedule for The Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat.

Denver will have over a week and a half of rest between its four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers and Game 1 on June 1. The top-seeded Western Conference squad will possess home-court advantage against the surprising No. 8 Heat.

Miami will be on much shorter rest, having just two days off after blowing a 3-0 lead before routing the Boston Celtics on the road in Game 7 on Monday night. The team is just the second eighth seed ever to advance to The Finals.
