The 1964 NBA World Championship Series was the championship round of the 1964 NBA Playoffs, which concluded the National Basketball Association 1963–64 season. The best-of-seven series was played between the Western Conference champion San Francisco Warriors and the Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics.

This was the first time Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain faced off in the NBA Finals; they did once again in 1969.
