SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS Radio) -- The Golden State Warriors won't start playing their home games in San Francisco until later this year, but the city's airport is already awash in the team's colors.

San Francisco International Airport officials are saluting the team's fifth straight appearance in the NBA Finals with a lightshow, washing the facade of the International Terminal in blue and gold light.

Other San Francisco landmarks, including Coit Tower and City Hall, will get the blue-and-gold lighting on Friday night.

The Warriors will play either the Milwaukee Bucks or the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals with Game 1 scheduled for May 30.  Games 3 and 4 will be played at the Oracle Arena in Oakland on June 5 and 7, and it's possible the June 7 date could mark the end of the team's tenure in Oakland.

The Warriors will move to the new Chase Center in San Francisco for the 2019-2020 NBA season.
