For seven months, the NBA season has been building toward the third consecutive Finals meeting between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors. The Cavs' Game 5 romp over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night clinched it.

Shortly after the unprecedented, highly anticipated re-rematch was booked, the NBA released the schedule for the series. We'll have to wait almost a week to get the goods. The Finals will tip off June 1.

Game Home Away Date Start TV
1 Warriors Cavaliers Thu, June 1 9 p.m. ET ABC

* If necessary

As if these teams weren't getting enough rest after making mincemeat of their respective conferences (the Warriors are 12-0 in the postseason, the Cavs 12-1), only once during the series will they play after a single day of rest. All the other games will be separated by at least two days.
