NBA playoffs 2022: What to watch in the Miami Heat-Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors-Dallas Mavericks conference finals

And then there were four teams left standing in the 2022 NBA playoffs.

After the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns -- last year's NBA finalists -- were knocked out in Game 7s on the same day, the 2021-22 season is one step closer to crowning a new champion.

The Boston Celtics overcame an otherworldly series performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo to reach the Eastern Conference finals. Meeting them are the top-seeded Miami Heat, who toppled the Philadelphia 76ers in six games.

The Dallas Mavericks used one of the biggest playoff blowouts in history to stun the NBA-best Phoenix Suns in Game 7, setting up a showdown with the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals.
