Warriors vs. Cavaliers Game 1: How to watch, live stream Golden State-Cleveland online, TV channel, start time
Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals tips on June 1
The Warriors took care of business early, sweeping the San Antonio Spurs in four games, as they waltzed through the Western Conference finals unscathed, becoming the first team to start a postseason 12-0, and the first to enter the Finals undefeated since the 2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers.
Cleveland nearly matched that feat, but their undefeated streak was ended in surprise fashion in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, as the Celtics stunned them with a last-second 3-pointer by Avery Bradley. It turned out to only be a minor hiccup, however, as the Cavs took care of business in the next two games to clinch their spot in the Finals.
Now, the two superteams will have their grudge match. The Warriors took the title in 2015, but LeBron and Co. came back in epic fashion to steal it last season. Hopefully this time around will be just as exciting as the previous meetings.
