NBA playoffs 2024: Experts predict Celtics-Pacers, Wolves-Mavs conference finals and series MVPs

Related Topics: Boston Celtics, Indiana Pacers



The NBA's conference finals are here. Which of the league's final four teams will be playing for the Larry O'Brien Trophy next month?

The top-seeded Boston Celtics remain the title favorites despite the uncertain status of big man Kristaps Porzingis, who hasn't played since April 29 because of a calf strain. Sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Friday that Porzingis is expected to miss at least the first two games of the series against the Indiana Pacers.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks, meanwhile, enter their series on the heels of knocking off the top two seeds in the Western Conference.
