Another NBA Finals, another Golden State Warriors appearance. The defending champs return for a fifth straight season, and this time around they won’t face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Instead, they’ll take on a newcomer to this stage: the Toronto Raptors.

Toronto overcame a 2-0 Eastern finals hole by pulling out four consecutive wins to send the Milwaukee Bucks packing and advance to the Finals for the first time in franchise history. Golden State, meanwhile, dispatched the Portland Trail Blazers in four games in the Western Conference finals.

The 2019 NBA Finals will feature plenty of superstars as Kawhi Leonard, playing as well as anyone in the NBA right now, will face off against Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and (eventually) Kevin Durant. After suffering a calf injury in the conference semifinals against the Rockets, Durant has yet to take the court and is already ruled out for Game 1. Toronto will have its hands full attempting to dethrone the Warriors, but it’s been a magical postseason for the Raptors thus far. 

Below is a look at the NBA playoff bracket and the complete schedule for conference finals games, along with viewing information.
