Celtics vs. Pacers live stream: How to watch Game 1 of 2024 NBA playoff series without cable | Sporting News United Kingdom

The 2024 Eastern Conference Finals will feature a matchup between the championship favorite and a fearless underdog.

The Celtics quickly dispatched the Heat and Cavaliers in their previous two playoff series, knocking out each opponent in five games. Boston already has plenty of firepower, but it could receive a huge boost if Kristaps Porzingis is able to rejoin the rotation after missing the entirety of the second round with a right calf strain.

While the Celtics were rolling through their side of the bracket, the Pacers were busy taking down the No. 2 Knicks and No. 3 Bucks. Indiana will look to build off a historic Game 7 performance against New York in which it set a postseason record by shooting 67.1 percent from the field.

Can Boston jump out to a 1-0 lead for the third straight series? Or will Indiana add to its list of playoff upsets?
