Quick Answer: Fans can watch the Celtics vs. Pacers NBA finals game online with a live TV streaming service, including Sling TV.

The Indiana Pacers are headed to the 2024 NBA Finals, and it’s gearing up to be a matchup worth streaming. On Tuesday’s 8 p.m. tipoff at the TD Garden, the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference, and the Celtics, the No. 1 seed, will face off in the first-round of the Eastern Conference series. This will be the seventh time in playoff history that these teams will square off, with the Celtics having won four out of the previous six series in the first round.

The Celtics may have the home-court advantage in the seven-game series, but the Pacers just beat the Knicks with some insane shooting in the Game 7 clincher at Madison Square Garden, scoring 130-109. The pressure is still on for the Celtics, who won’t have Kristaps Porzingis to start the series, but it’ll still be difficult for the Pacers to compete defensively.

So if you’re a cord-cutter looking to still watch the game live, here’s the rundown on where to livestream the first Celtics vs. Pacers NBA finals game online.
