HOW TO WATCH ON TV
For those not watching the game in person or in a group setting at a bar, the channels for the first four games have been announced: Game 5 is on NBATV.

LOOKING BACK
The team ended the 82-game regular season at 48-34 and finished 4th in the Eastern Conference. Against fifth-seed Orlando during the regular season, the Cavs were 2-2. Last year, the Cavs’ dreams of playoff glory were dashed in the first round with a 5-game stint against the New York Knicks. This year, the team has worked (through a rolodex of injuries) to get to the playoffs and improve upon that.

WHAT’S NEXT
Hopefully, going onto Round 2. But if you ask any coach or player in any sport ever, the mindset is just one game at a time.
