May 17, 2018

 

It’s official—the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers are duking it out to see who will become 2018’s Eastern Conference Champions and move on to the NBA Finals. After two games, the Celtics are leading the Cavaliers 2-0, but no one should count the Cavs out just yet. They’ve come back before—remember the 2016 NBA Finals when they came back from a 0-3 deficit against the Golden State Warriors?

How’s it looking in the Western Conference finals? The Golden State Warriors took game one from the Houston Rockets, but the Rockets took game two from the Warriors. Who will win the best out of seven games? There are still many games to play, but we’ll keep you updated on which team moves on to the NBA Finals. May the best team win!

It’s NBA playoff season, and basketball fans everywhere are cheering on their favorite teams. For the fourth year in a row, the Golden State Warriors have made it to the Western Conference Finals and will be playing against the Houston Rockets!

For those of you who don’t know what that means, allow us to explain: The NBA is divided into two conferences (or groups). The top teams in each of these conferences play each other until the two best are determined to play for the title of conference champions. The champions of these conference finals then move on to play in the NBA Finals.

As for fans of the teams of the Eastern Conference … well, the Cleveland Cavaliers have secured their spot, but the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers are still duking it out to clinch their spot. The Celtics are leading the series 3-1, but it’s still anyone’s game. Exciting, isn’t it? We’re sure sitting on the edge of our seats!
