For a minute it looked like the Boston Celtics were going to go down in NBA history as the first team to comeback from a 3-0 hole. But it wasn’t meant to be.

Instead, Erik Spoelstra will make his sixth trip to the NBA Finals.

Jimmy Butler will make his second trip to the Finals with the Heat.

This is only the second time an 8th seed has made it through the Eastern Conference to the Finals. The last was the 1998-99 New York Knicks. Spurs fans know how that shook out.

The Denver Nuggets have had some extended time off since sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers, but don’t let the exasperated look of Jokic trip you up, he’s ready.

The NBA Finals kick off Thursday night.

Are you excited? Do you care?

If you’re watching, for who will you be rooting?
