NEW YORK (AP) — TNT will host its pregame show Monday from the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta, before the network televises the Golden State-Cleveland showdown.

Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal and Kenny Smith will be on site at 7 p.m. EST and the one-hour program will feature interviews with King's children, Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and civil rights activists and politicians.

The NBA Finals rematch will follow from Cleveland, where the Warriors won the championship in Game 6 last June. The second game of the doubleheader matches the Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets.
