Expert picks for Heat-Celtics and Warriors-Mavs

Which teams are headed to the 2021 NBA Finals?

In the Eastern Conference finals, two rivals collide in the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics showdown. Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and the Celtics are fresh off unseating Giannis Antetokounmpo and the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks. The top-seeded Heat, meanwhile, ousted the Philadelphia 76ers in six games.

The Western Conference finals won't include either the Phoenix Suns or Memphis Grizzlies, the NBA's top two teams during the regular season. Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks ended Phoenix's run with a historic Game 7 rout, while the Warriors sent home the upstart yet shorthanded Grizzlies.

Will the Celtics reach the Finals for the first time since 2010? Can the Warriors restart their dynasty? Will the Luka magic continue? Our NBA experts are making their predictions.
