ESPN Forecast: Spurs, Celtics hanging on in latest predictions

While the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers have swept their way one step closer to another rematch, the remaining conference finals spots remain very much up for grabs.

We polled the ESPN Forecast panel of experts heading into Game 5 of both remaining conference semifinal series.

Here are the results, with each team's updated chances to win and predictions from ESPN's Basketball Power Index (BPI), FiveThirtyEight and a fan poll.
