The Boston Celtics are the 2024 NBA Champions.

The storied club beat the Dallas Mavericks 106-88 tonight, giving them a so-called “gentlemen’s sweep” of the series, 4 games to 1.

Tonight’s victory means the Celtics are once again the winningest team in professional basketball, with 18 titles. Previously, they had been tied with their archenemies Los Angeles Lakers at 17 apiece. That makes tonight’s victory all the more sweet for Celtics faithful.

Boston dominated the series with their man-on-man defense against Mavericks’ all stars Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, two of the most potent scorers in the league.

The Celtics were clear frontrunners to win the title, exiting the regular season with the best record in the league, 64-18. Tonight, they made good on that promise, hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy on their home floor.
