The 2022 NBA Finals begins Thursday with Game 1 between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors, which will be played at 9:00 p.m. ET at the Chase Center in San Francisco. Both teams want to get the series off to a strong start. Here’s a look at the officiating crew for Game 1.

Marc Davis will be the team boss while John Goble and James Williams will be referees and referees respectively. Ed Malloy was appointed as deputy. Zach Zarba takes over the rep center.

Davis is making his 11th finals appearance as an official and will lead the Game 1 crew. Williams is the least experienced finals umpire here, as this is his second appearance on the series. We’ll see what the game will be called early on, which will likely set the tone for the series. Both teams play physical defense, so how those officials handle the game early on could dictate the level of aggressiveness for the rest of the matchup.
