The 2022 NBA Finals matchup is all set.
On Sunday, the Boston Celtics were able to hold off a fierce comeback attempt by Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to advance to the Finals for the first time in over a decade. Butler had a chance to put the Heat up one, but his three-pointer with a little over 15 seconds left came up just short. Fittingly, Jayson Tatum took home the inaugural Larry Bird Trophy as the Eastern Conference MVP. The C’s now turn their attention to the Golden State Warriors, as they will travel to San Francisco for the first two games of the Finals, which begin on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. In NBA history, a player has scored 40 or more points in a Finals game on 66 occasions, and with these two high-powered offenses, it’s likely we see a few in the upcoming matchup. So with that in mind, how many of those 66 can you name in five minutes?
