BOSTON — The Celtics are back in the Eastern Conference finals after their 4-1 series win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Celtics will officially face the Indiana Pacers. Their Game 7 series is at Madison Square Garden at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The schedule is as follows:

Game 1: Tuesday, May 21 at 8 p.m. in Boston

The Celtics played the entire series without starting center Kristaps Porzingis, who continues to recover from the calf strain he sustained late last round against the Heat. They also had to bounce back after losing Game 2 and home-court advantage against the Cavs. Three consecutive wins later, Boston likes the trajectory it’s on just four victories shy of returning to the NBA Finals

This is the Celtic’s third consecutive season in the Eastern Conference finals.
