The 2024 NBA playoffs certainly had a handful of surprises. From champion superstars like Lebron James, Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo falling early in the tournament to the Warriors Dynasty not even making it past the Play-in Tournament, this year's final two contenders possibly represent a changing of the guard in the league.

For the Dallas Mavericks, it's been an impressive feat to watch them go from the number 5 seed in the Western Conference to becoming a contender for a championship title. After the All-Star break, they seemed to really find their stride, locking in with skill and confidence. So will Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving be able to lead their team to victory?

On the other side of this equation, you have the Boston Celtics, who are the number 1 seed in the East and have the best record overall. There's a lot of pressure for them to finish a banner year on a high note and get a title. Plus, beating the Mavericks in the best-of-seven-games series means they'll officially break their tie with the Lakers for the most championship wins of any NBA team. So can Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown help the Celtics get the job done?
