The NBA playoffs have officially moved on to the NBA Finals, with the Boston Celtics winning a seven-game nail-biter over the Miami Heat to face the Golden State Warriors for a chance to break their 17-17 tie in all-time championships with the Los Angeles Lakers on the line.
And with those stakes, we know most of you — like all of us on the Silver Screen and Roll staff — are almost certainly going to be watching these games. So here is the full schedule, and a dedicated page where you can come hang out and discuss the matchups in the comments below as they get underway. All games will be televised on ABC.
To facilitate the discussion of these games with stats, here is a link to ESPN’s ongoing box scores for your convenience. You can also find the latest coverage, updates and analysis on the postseason at our SB Nation NBA home page, where we’ll be posting links to stories on the latest news and developments on these series from all of our excellent team sites as the NBA postseason continues apace. Plus, you get national blogs like this one from Ricky O’Donnell, and everyone needs more of those in their life.
Finally, for fresh audio thoughts on the games (almost) every day of the series, don’t forget to check out the posts about our most recent podcasts, where the entire Silver Screen and Roll crew has been talking about the playoffs and what the Lakers can learn from them as they watch at home just like the rest of us. To get those in your podcast feeds every day, don’t forget to subscribe on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
To kick things off, we’d normally ask who you’re rooting for... But given that the Celtics are involved, we are pretty sure we know the answer. Let’s chat about that and more in the comments below.
