The Denver Nuggets will know who they will face in the NBA Finals at least a couple more days have passed since the conference finals.
If the Boston Celtics get their way, it could go on longer.
After Jayson Tatum led the Celtics to a 116-99 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 4 of their series on Tuesday night, the Celtics are still in the running to win the Eastern Conference finals. Tatum scored 33 points to lead Boston to the victory. Even though they are behind 3-1 in the series, Boston will host Game 5 on Thursday.
In the meanwhile, the Nuggets continue to wait. On Monday, they completed a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers, which led to them winning the Western Conference championship. They will play the first game of the NBA Finals on June 1st, and it will be at home to start if Miami is their opponent; however, if Boston is their opponent, it will be played on the road.
On Thursday, Game 5 of the East finals will take place in Boston, which will serve as the host city. If Game 6 must be played, it will take place on Saturday in Miami. Should Game 7 be required, it will take place on Monday in Boston.
