The 2021-22 NBA Conference Finals are in full swing as the four remaining teams compete for the chance to hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Fans witnessed the Boston Celtics dominate the Miami Heat, 127-102, in Game 2 of their series on Thursday to even things up, 1-1. However, not only did the Celtics' victory tie their series, but it also created a huge shakeup in the NBA Finals odds.
