A previous version of this story follows:

The Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors will begin the 2022 NBA Finals on Thursday night with Game 1 at Chase Arena.

The Warriors are in their sixth Finals in eight seasons. They won three titles in the previous five appearances. A fourth title for the Warriors' core -- Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green -- would vault it into historic territory.

The Celtics are back in the Finals for the first time since 2010. After three Eastern Conference Finals appearances in 2017, 2018 and 2020, Boston finally broke through this season after defeating the Miami Heat in a Game 7 on the road.
