After back-to-back nights of Game 7s in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, two teams emerged for the Conference Finals. The Milwaukee Bucks eliminated the Brooklyn Nets in a nail-biting overtime game on Saturday.

On Sunday, the fifth seed Atlanta Hawks upset the conference leader Philadelphia 76ers.

Can Atlanta continue the upset in Milwaukee? Or will Giannis and the Bucks (who looked gassed at the end of their semifinals series) dig deep and knock out the Hawks on their way to their first Finals appearance since 1974?

Both have won one title. The Bucks in 1971 anchored by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The Hawks hoisted the Championship trophy back during the Eisenhower administration while they were still located in St. Louis.

Who are you rooting for in these conference finals?
