The NBA Finals will start at the end of the month.
Last night, the Golden State Warriors punched their ticket into the NBA Finals for a fifth-straight year. Tonight, the Toronto Raptors take on the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Final matchup. With the series at 2-1 in favor of the Bucks, the Raptors can force a minimum of six games with a win. This would certainly help the Warriors who will have a lot more rest than their potential opponents.
The NBA Finals will begin on May 30th and according to Sporting News, Game 7 of the ECF would be on May 27th. This means the winner of that series would only have three days rest, while the Warriors would have nine. Check out the full NBA Finals schedule below.
