NBA Playoff Picture and Bracket 2022 Heading Into Conference Finals


The NBA Playoffs are officially in the thick of things. The bracket is down to four of the best teams in basketball. These four teams will pair off in a best-of-seven series to earn berths to the NBA Finals.

The dwindling of the teams has created a clearer picture of the odds to win the NBA Finals, especially with the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks eliminated in the second round.

The Golden State Warriors still lead the pack with +130 odds to win it all. They're followed by the Boston Celtics (+210), Miami Heat (+430) and Dallas Mavericks (+650), who are coming off an impressive Game 7 win over the defending Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns.
