TNT is adding a Monday night doubleheader package to its NBA coverage, starting with an NBA Finals rematch on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will visit the Golden State Warriors on Jan. 16, returning to the arena where they won their first championship with a victory in Game 7. The Oklahoma City Thunder face the Los Angeles Clippers in the late game.

TNT already televises a Thursday night doubleheader. The Monday night coverage is part of Turner Sports’ long-term extension with the NBA that includes enhanced multimedia rights.

The network will televise the NBA season opener between Cleveland and New York on Oct. 25 and 64 games overall during the regular season.
