The time is finally here to watch the Golden State Warriors go up against the Cleveland Cavaliers as Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs Finals is underway along with the NBA Finals schedule, which has fans on the edge of their seats as they wait to see who will move up in ranks. Fans are already making their own predictions for the NBA schedule, and tonight’s game has them searching “Watch NBA live.” But who will win Game 1 tonight?

After the Golden State Warriors defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 7 with a score of 96 to 88, fans have a chance to look at the new NBA Finals schedule, and we have all the details of how to watch NBA live, starting with Game 1. With the NBA games today, fans have been searching “Warriors vs. Cavs game schedule,” but thanks to us, you won’t have to ask “What time is the NBA Finals?” or “Where is the NBA finals?” or search fruitlessly for the NBA schedule today. So, keep reading because we have the answers you need so you don’t miss the Warriors go up against the Cavaliers for a second year in a row for the NBA championship title.


The anticipated Game 1 of the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. the Golden State Warriors will take place at Oracle Arena, Oakland in California. This means a home-court advantage for the Warriors (not that they need it). If you’re one of the lucky few who were able to score tickets to the game, then be sure to give yourself enough time to beat the presumed traffic.


If all goes well (and there’s no reason it shouldn’t) then the long-waited Game 1 will start at 9:00 p.m. EST on June 2—that’s tonight! So, do whatever you can not to miss the game that may set the tone for the others.


Game 1 will air tonight on ABC, so check your local channel listings and set a TV reminder, just in case. If, for some reason, you miss the first game, don’t worry: there are seven of them (depending on how the players do), so you’ll have six more changes to catch up.

Live Stream

If you don’t have a cable subscription or tickets to any of the games, then you always have your trusted computers. Fans can go online and live stream Game 1 on ESPN3, and unlike ESPN and ESPN2, you don’t need to sign in with a cable provider; you just need an internet provider. Did we mention that you can do all of this for free? And in the rare event that you don’t have a computer then you can watch Game 1 on the WatchESPN app.

Who do you think will tonight? Let us know in the comment section below!
