The Golden State Warriors will face the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals beginning tonight (9 pm ET, ABC), the first time the teams have met in the title series since 1964.
Boston, tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most NBA championships at 17, seeks its first title since 2008. The team is led by first-year coach Ime Udoka and a duo of young stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown—though no one on the current roster has previously played in the finals.
The Warriors are in the finals for the sixth time in eight years; the first team to do so since the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls. Golden State has won three titles since 2015, but injuries have hampered the team over the past two seasons. Its two stars—Steph Curry and Klay Thompson—enter the finals near full strength.
