2024 NBA Playoffs bracket and results

Eastern Conference Finals

It was a true battle of David vs. Goliath as the 64-win Celtics took on the 47-win Pacers. Boston coasted through to the conference finals with just a pair of losses while Indiana needed a full seven games against the injury-ravaged Knicks to punch their ticket. The Pacers put up a fight in Game 1, nearly winning in regulation before losing in OT. While the Pacers kept things mostly competitive in the eventual sweep, losing three of four game by five points or less, the Celtics were simply too much to overcome.

The Timberwolves appeared to be a team of destiny after dispatching the defending champion Nuggets in the conference semifinals.
