You are probably at the edge of your seats right now if you are an avid fan of the National Basketball Association (NBA). We are sorry that the Lakers did not make it to the playoffs for Lebron fans but you should not missed out the thrill of 2022 NBA finals. 

Current NBA playoffs status

As of the article’s writing, the four teams competing in the league’s semifinals are the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics for the Eastern Conference and the Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks for the Western Conference. All the teams competing for this season’s top prize were former NBA champions.

NBA Finals predictions

There is a long way to go before the current NBA season reaches its conclusion. But for sure, you already have a bet between Heat vs. Celtics and Mavericks vs. Warriors. Here are the experts’ opinions. 

Eastern Conference predictions 

According to sports experts, The Celtics will reach the NBA finals. The winning tandem of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown and the Celtics’ defensive tactics were enough to take down the current NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks. The Heat will need a more significant effort in breaking down Boston’s team. Who is your favorite tallest current NBA player?

Western Conference predictions 

Like the Celtics, experts say that The Mavericks have a more complete team than Golden State. The Mavs’ forward-guard Luka Doncic is more overwhelming than Stephen Curry in the current season. Aside from Luka, Dallas Dorian Finney-Smith and Reggie Bullock can defend and shoot simultaneously.
