The Dallas Mavericks faced the Minnesota Timberwolves in game 5 of the Western Conference Finals series on Thursday night at Target Center. The Mavs secured their spot in the NBA Finals after a 103–124 series-ending victory. As the NBA world gears up for the highly anticipated matchup between the Mavericks and Celtics, the league announced the dates for the finals.

All of the above matches have the name of the home team on the front.

Kyrie Irving’s history with the Celtics added an extra layer to the game, but have the two franchises ever met in an NBA Finals?

Have Celtics ever faced Mavericks in the NBA Finals?

Looking through the history of the NBA Finals, the Celtics have won the league 17 times, and not once were their opponents the Mavericks. Compared to Boston’s record-breaking title win, the Dallas squad has only won the championship once, in 2011. Dirk Nowitzki-led Mavs defeated the Miami Heat on that occasion, and this time they get the chance to do it with Luka. Doncic.

Although the two teams never met in the NBA Finals, they met 86 times during the regular season. The C’s historically have a 46-40 overall lead in the regular season, and they currently have a 4-0 win streak against the Mavs.

While the Celtics are historically in an advantageous position heading into the Finals, the opportunity speaks for itself. The Mavs have enough firepower in their arsenal to beat the guys in Green this time.
