The conference finals are here! The NBA playoffs are down to four teams, with the Boston Celtics taking on the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference (all games on ESPN). The Heat are looking for their first NBA Finals trip since 2014, while Boston hasn't been to the league's biggest stage since 2010.
Over in the West, the Battle of LA was spoiled by the Denver Nuggets, who knocked off the LA Clippers and will now face the Los Angeles Lakers, who -- like the Celtics -- are looking to return to the Finals for the first time since 2010 (and the first time with LeBron James).
江苏快三彩票We'll have complete ongoing coverage right here for you, as the playoffs continue at the NBA's bubble at ESPN's Wide World of Sports at the Walt Disney World resort now through the NBA Finals in the middle of October.
