From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1964 NBA Playoffs was the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association's 1963-1964 season. The tournament concluded with the Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics defeating the Western Conference champion San Francisco Warriors, four games to one in the NBA Finals.

Boston earned their sixth consecutive, and seventh overall, NBA championship, as they continued to dominate the 1960s decade. Indeed, with the exception of 1967, the Celtics won every single NBA championship awarded in the sixties.

This was the San Francisco Warriors' first trip to the NBA Finals since 1956 when they were housed in Philadelphia; they would make a repeat appearance in 1967 and (as the Golden State Warriors) would earn the franchise's second championship in 1975.

The Philadelphia 76ers earned their first playoff appearance in their new city; they had been founded as the independent Syracuse Nationals in 1939 and joined the National Basketball League in 1946.
