The NBA Finals 2015 schedule has been set with the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on the Golden State Warriors with Game 1 set for June 4 at the Oracle Arena.

NBA Finals won’t start later: League confirms that June 4 start still stands.
NBA fans arguably have the dream match-up to end the year, with the best team in the West facing the side that demolished the No.1 seed in the East in the Conference Finals.
Cleveland secured a series sweep over the Atlanta Hawks to advance to this stage, while the Warriors saw off the Houston Rockets 4-1 to make their first NBA Finals appearance since 1975.
In addition, fans will also get to see Stephen Curry take on LeBron James, indirectly of course although James may indeed guard the MVP at times, which will in itself be worth the money to witness.
It remains to be seen who eventually lifts the championship, but Golden State have home-court advantage which could be key as they have lost just three times at the Oracle Arena all season.
However, LeBron and Co will be their biggest test yet as even despite the loss of Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving struggling with knee troubles, Cleveland remain a real threat and will be desperate to end their long wait for a sporting championship.
