The 2024 NBA Finals are underway.

The series began on Thursday, June 6, at TD Garden, when the Boston Celtics hosted the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the series.

This is the 23rd Finals appearance for the Celtics in their storied history. They have won 17 championships, which is tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most all time, but only one of those titles (2008) has been won in the last 37 years.

The Celtics went 12-2 in the Eastern Conference playoffs to secure their second Finals berth in three seasons.

The Mavericks are in the Finals for the third time in franchise history. They lost to the Miami Heat in 2006 but got their revenge in 2011. Both of those series went six games. The Mavs defeated three 50-win teams in the Western Conference playoffs en route to this year's Finals.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the 2024 NBA Finals and all the coverage before, during and after the games.
