2022 NBA Finals: How to Watch, Stream Warriors vs. Celtics

The Golden State Warriors meet the Boston Celtics in Game 1 on Thursday

NBC Universal, Inc.

The Finals are back, and so are the Golden State Warriors.

Steve Kerr’s squad won the Western Conference finals for the sixth time in eight years. With Klay Thompson back in the mix, Jordan Poole emerging and the usual greatness from Draymond Green and Steph Curry, the Warriors earned the No. 3 seed in the conference. They’ve been on a tear since the playoffs started, losing just four games while eliminating the Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks.

Now, the Dubs are on the verge of their fourth championship since 2015. To capture it, they will need to get past what could be their toughest test yet.

The Boston Celtics completed an astonishing mid-season turnaround and ended the regular season as the East’s No. 2 seed. They proceeded to sweep the Brooklyn Nets, knock out the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks in seven games and beat the Miami Heat in seven games to reach their first Finals in 12 years.

The two historic franchises will now square off in the Finals for just the second time. Here’s how to watch all the action:
