Celtics-Cavaliers First-Round Series Will Start on Sunday

The Celtics and Cavaliers will begin their first-round series on Sunday, the NBA announced on Wednesday.

The No. 2 seeded Cavaliers will host Game 1 in Cleveland and the contest will be broadcast on ABC. No official start time for the game has been announced, but league sources told Boston.com that tipoff will be in the afternoon, likely at 3 p.m. ET. The game will be just the second time this season Boston has played in front of a national audience.

Game 2 of the series will also be a Quicken Loans Arena before the two teams return to Boston for Games 3 and 4. If necessary, the Cavs will host Game 5 and 7 in Cleveland, while Game 6 would be at TD Garden.


The complete series schedule will be released on Wednesday night, once all seeds for both conferences have been settled.
