On Sunday, the games are Milwaukee-Boston, Indiana-Cleveland, Utah-Oklahoma City and Minnesota-Houston.

Cleveland will host Indiana at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, as LeBron James tries to lead the Cavs to its fourth straight NBA Finals appearance.

For those planning way ahead, the NBA Finals are set to begin on May 31.
