The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Monday night for Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals.
Behind an a magical offensive performance, the Cavs avoided elimination with a 137-116 thumping in Game 4 on Friday night. Though they still trail 3-1 in the series, a win Monday would bring the Finals back to Cleveland and suddenly make things looks awfully interesting. It’s going to take another near perfect performance, though, as the Dubs have lost just two games at Oracle since the All-Star break.
Game 5 is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ABC. In most areas you should be able to pick up ABC with a digital antenna even if you don’t have cable, but if you can’t get to a television, all you need is an internet provider to watch a live stream on your computer or streaming device.
Here’s a rundown of how to watch the series opener online:
