MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — A U.S. government-funded radio station is set to broadcast the NBA finals live to people in Cuba.

The Office of Cuba Broadcasting announced Thursday, June 6th  Radio Marti will air a play-by-play commentary of this year’s matchup of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.

The U.S. has been broadcasting to Cuba for more than two decades. Radio and TV Marti air news, commentary and entertainment stories with the aim of promoting access to information in Cuba.

Critics of Radio and TV Marti say the programs are ineffective and have limited reach on the island.

This year marks the office’s second partnership with the NBA.
