So I've seen posts that the Finals will start May 30th no matter what, and Game 2 will be June 1st. Any word on game 3-7? I have a trip planned early June, and want to see how it'll affect things.

Can we safely assume it'll be a 3 day rest whenever they switch cities? Or will they change it up to align with primetime tv slots better?

This is what I'm thinking:
Game 3: Tue, June 4th
Game 4: Thu, June 6th
Game 5: Sun, June 9th
Game 6: Wed, June 12th
Game 7: Sat, June 15th?

I wouldn't assume game 2 will be June 1st.

I found this article: https://heavy.com/sports/2019/05/nba-finals-schedule-start-when-who-warriors-bucks/

We could get drinks, but not food unless you had a table. The tickets are if we had gotten a table, we could have gotten a couple tickets so the people meeting us could get in without waiting in line, but we never got the table. There were several empty tables with reserved on them don't know if they were for VIPs/sponsors or what.

The line was insane at 5:00 yesterday. I assume it was already at capacity and everyone planned on staying for the game so not sure what the 200 people in line expected to happen.

Got there at 4 waited for 45 minutes to get in. Once we got in we then got put on a waiting list. Was told to give them our number and they would text if there was a opening (never got that text). I asked the people in the booth how they were able to get seated. They told me they got there at 2 and even before that at 11 they were there to set a reservation. My brother called them a day before the game to ask how the process all worked. They told him that they do not do reservations and it’s a first come first serve basis. It was a mess overall. We ended up going to a burger place close by. Point burger or burger point something like that. It was great, good prices, decent food and lots of tvs. And it was close enough that we walked to the plaza at halftime to enjoy the rest of the game in that atmosphere. I recommend the alcoholic shakes. 12 bucks but it was delicious

Yeah, they have to figure out what they want to do. We never got a text saying our table was ready either.

Ticket prices have tanked for tomorrow night. Good opportunity to get in the building for cheap compared to games 1 & 2.

I think a lot of people are doing the 1 game per series in hopes of spreading out the financial burden of shelling out $150 per game. That’s what I’ve been doing. If it goes 7 I might have to dip back in, but it’s tough to justify spending a grand on tickets to a couple games. I originally pegged this as a 6 game series, but that last game was a tough look.

Yeah it's crazy tickets for this game are so cheap. This is the biggest game of the year so far.

Do you think they're cancelled because we're down 3-2..?

It will be interesting how many less people show up to watch party.

Being a Saturday night with temps in the 70s should help regardless of the team’s performance.

It's like opening day. People in Milwaukee love to party. That place will be packed like it's been all season.

Should be a good amount of people there. Holiday weekend means some are traveling, some have other plans. Brewers will draw a big crowd but their game is at 3:15 and should be over before the Bucks.
