After the Houston Rockets defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 95-80 to force a game seven in their Western Conference Semifinal series the NBA announced the schedule for the Western Conference Finals.
I am sure you all know the format, but just in case should the Lakers win Denver will play at Los Angeles in Games one and two, while games three and four will be in Denver. “If necessary” games five and seven will be back in L.A. with game six in Denver. If Houston wins game seven against the Lakers on Sunday the Nuggets will have home court advantage in Games one and two and in the “if necessary” games five and seven.
Game 1 – Tuesday, May 19, time TBD on ESPN
