    The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will clash in the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row. This is The Roar‘s complete guide to the series, including how to live stream every match and watch them on TV.

    The NBA Finals are contested over a seven-match series, pitting the winners of the Western Conference against the winners of the Eastern Conference.

    While this season brought with it some challenges for Cleveland and Golden State, they beat the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets, respectively, in Game 7 of their conference finals series to qualify for the biggest basketball series on the planet one more time.

    In their previous three encounters, the Warriors have had the better of the match-up, winning 4-1 in 2017 and 4-2 in 2015. The Cavaliers, on the back of LeBron James, caused one of the biggest boilovers in NBA history in between, coming back from 3-1 down to win 4-3 in 2016.

    How to watch the NBA Finals on TV

    The only way to watch every match of the NBA Finals on TV will be through ESPN, which is available exclusively on Foxtel through Channel 508.

    To watch the coverage, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package.
