The conference finals are underway in the 2022 NBA playoffs. The Miami Heat took Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, as Jimmy Butler score 41 points in the win. The Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks get going on Wednesday night in San Francisco.
The 2022 NBA Finals will not have either of the participants from last year. The defending champion Milwaukee Bucks were ousted by the Celtics in Game 7 on Sunday afternoon. Hours later, the Mavs crushed the Suns in Phoenix to eliminate the reining Western Conference champions. The Warriors and Heat, meanwhile, took care of their second-round competition (the Grizzlies and 76ers, respectively) in six games.
