NBA Finals

The NBA Finals is the ultimate showdown in professional basketball, where the best two teams in the world go head to head in one best of seven series to determine who will be the year’s NBA Champions. The NBA Finals is the place where dreams are made (and shattered), where the game’s biggest superstars have risen to the occasion to bring glory to their team, their fans, and their city. As the apex of the 2023-2024 NBA basketball season, the 2024 NBA Finals is one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, one that will be viewed by millions of fans on television and online, but only a comparative few in person. Just imagine being there. The drama, the intensity, the high stakes. For any basketball fan, there is nothing that can compare with actually being in the stands to witness the cavalcade of emotion that is the NBA Finals.

As the culminating event of the 2023-2024 NBA basketball season and 2024 NBA Playoffs, the 2024 NBA Finals will without a doubt be the most watched basketball series on the planet. Tickets to 2024 NBA Finals will sell out almost immediately upon release due to incredibly high demand, along with many tickets allocated to season ticket holders and premium seat owners who get first priority for such prestigious matchups.

When will the 2024 NBA Finals be taking place?

The NBA Finals have already been scheduled for June 6-23, depending on how many games the series runs to. Even the dates for all seven NBA Finals games have been fixed as follows:

  • Game 1 - June 6

  • Game 2 - June 9

  • Game 3 - June 12

  • Game 4 - June 14

  • Game 5 (if necessary) - June 17

  • Game 6 (if necessary) - June 20

  • Game 7 (if necessary) - June 23

Obviously, if you buy tickets to Games 5, 6, or 7, you will be running the risk that these games may not be necessary if the best of seven series concludes prior to your game taking place. On the flip side, if they do happen, these decisive games will be incredibly intense!

Where will the 2024 NBA Finals be taking place?

The 2024 NBA Finals will be split between the two home venues of the two teams participating (the Western Conference Champions and Eastern Conference Champions). Because the maximum number of games in the NBA Finals is an odd number at 7, the team with the better 2023-2024 NBA regular season will host 4 games while their opponents will host 3 games. The sequence is 2-2-1-1-1 (for a time it was 2-3-2), with 2 games played at the top seed’s home venue, followed by 2 at the opponents’ home venue, Game 5 back at the top seed’s venue (if necessary), Game 6 at the opponents’ venue (if necessary), and Game 7 at the top seed’s venue (if necessary).

Which NBA teams will be playing in the 2024 NBA Finals? When will we know which teams will be playing in the 2024 NBA Finals? 

On April 14, 2024, the final games of the 2023-2024 NBA regular season will be played and the 20 teams (10 from the Western Conference, 10 from the Eastern Conference) that will be taking place in the NBA postseason will be determined as ranked by their records throughout the regular season. 4 teams will be eliminated in the NBA Play-In Tournament from April 16-19, leading into the First Round of the NBA Playoffs, which involves 8 matchups between 16 teams, divided in half by Conference. After three rounds of best of seven series (First Round, Conference Semifinals, Conference Finals), two teams will remain: the Eastern Conference Champions and the Western Conference Champions. These two teams will contest the 2024 NBA Finals for the right to be proclaimed 2024 NBA Champions

While the Eastern Conference playoff picture is already basically set, the Western Conference still has some questions to answer. Here are all the NBA teams that could potentially have a shot at appearing in the 2024 NBA Finals in June.

NBA teams that could potentially be playing in the 2024 NBA Finals

Eastern Conference

Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, New Orleans Pelicans, New York Knicks, Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks

Western Conference

Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets (currently 11th)

How do the NBA Finals work? What is the format of the NBA Finals?

The NBA Finals are the final culminating series of the NBA Playoffs, a best of seven series between the Eastern Conference Champions and the Western Conference Champions. As a team requires 4 victories to win the NBA Championship, each NBA Finals lasts between 4 games (a sweep) and 7 games. There is nothing as intense as a Game Seven decider in an NBA Finals!

Any NBA Finals game that ends in a tie after four quarters will go into overtime. All overtime periods in the NBA Playoffs last five minutes, with the team ahead at the buzzer winning the game. If the score is still tied, the game goes into a second overtime period. The drama!

Who will win the 2024 NBA Finals?

In the Eastern Conference, the Boston Celtics have been incredibly dominant and are most people’s pick to make the NBA Finals, though that’s also what everyone said in 2023 and it didn’t happen. In with a good chance as well are the Milwaukee Bucks, who had a disappointing First Round exit in 2023, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, though the Miami Heat will fancy themselves for a deep playoff run again this year.

In the Western Conference, the experts seem to be tipping either the Los Angeles Clippers or Denver Nuggets for a run to the NBA Finals, with few giving the Minnesota Timberwolves any chance despite their first place finish in the conference. The Oklahoma City Thunder will also be looking to storm through the rounds, while the Phoenix Suns may be thinking that this may finally be their year after so many close calls in the past.

Who could be the players to watch in the 2024 NBA Finals?

Of course, when it comes to the 2024 NBA Finals, any team that makes it that far will have exciting star players to watch. For a shortlist from around the league, however, here are just a few to keep your eye on. Top scorers include Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma City Thunder, while players such as the Sacramento Kings’ Domantas Sabonis, the Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic, and the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Rudy Gobert. And of course, though his Los Angeles Lakers will have to qualify via the Play-In Tournament, only a fool would completely write off LeBron James in what could be his final season. All that said, part of the fun of the Playoffs is the legends that it creates out of previously unknown or underappreciated players? Who will step up this year?

What is the history of the NBA Finals?

The NBA Playoffs began in the late 1940s with the merger of the BAA and NBL, with its format gradually evolving towards the format that exists today. The Play-In Tournament preceding the main NBA Playoffs was introduced in 2021. Because of the Eastern-Western Conference system, many incredible playoff rivalries have developed over the years in the NBA (particularly in the 1980s and 90s when divisional playoff rounds led to the same teams playing one another almost every year!). For those interested in the history of the NBA Playoffs and NBA Finals, a trip to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA is a must!

Which teams have the best records in the NBA Finals?

There are currently two teams tied for the most NBA Championships, the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, who have each won 17 titles as of 2023 (several against one another!). Both teams will be desperate to claim that 18th title to take sole possession of the all-time lead. The NBA has also long been famous for its dynasties, where certain teams rise to the top and dominate for a period of time. While the Celtics may have had the longest dynasty in the league’s earliest years, the most memorable dynasty is probably that of the Chicago Bulls with their run of 6 NBA Championships in 8 years (with two “three-peats”) during the height of Michael Jordan’s power in the 1990s. A close second might be Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal’s Los Angeles Lakers in the early 2000s, followed by the Golden State Warriors in recent years, who have won 4 titles since 2015, three of them against the Cleveland Cavaliers in one of the greatest NBA Finals rivalries.

Are NBA Finals games exciting?

The NBA FInals have provided basketball fans with some of the most iconic moments in the sport’s history, from Magic and Bird’s epic duels of the 1980s and Michael Jordan’s buzzer beater in 1998 to LeBron James’s chase-down block and Kyrie Irving’s clutch 3-pointer in 2016. Fans of teams that make it all the way to the NBA FInals approach games with a mixture of excitement, trepidation, expectation, and churning butterflies, hoping for the sweetest of all outcomes yet also fearing the bitter taste of defeat so close to the ultimate goal. This all translates to some of the most incredible energy you will feel at a sporting event, all bottled up inside an arena seating 20,000 anxious supporters. So, how can you get involved in all the nerve-shredding excitement? Get on TicketX right now and buy your NBA Finals tickets before it’s too late!
