The NBA Finals are on ABC this year. You can find the schedule here.


The National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals is the championship series of the NBA, played between the Western and Eastern Conference champions. The Western Conference team has home-court advantage in the series.

The NBA Finals was first broadcast on television in 1953, on NBC. CBS took over in 1955 and aired the Finals until 1973 when ABC won the rights to televise the game. NBC regained broadcast rights in 1975 and aired the Finals until 1982. ABC did not televise the Finals from 1983 until 1985 due to a contract dispute; during that time, NBC aired the games instead. ABC regained broadcast rights in 1986 and has aired the Finals ever since.

The NBA Finals is currently televised on ABC; ESPN has exclusive radio rights.


The NBA Finals is a best-of-seven series played between the Western Conference champion and the Eastern Conference champion to decide the National Basketball Association (NBA) championship. The series is played under a 2–2–1–1–1 format, meaning that the team with home-court advantage (Games 1, 2, 5 and 7) will host Games 1, 2 and 5, while their opponents will host Games 3, 4 and 6.

The 2020 NBA Finals will air on ABC.
