The Miami Heat just won the Eastern Conference, defeating the Bolton Celtics on Monday night. Now, get ready for an incredible showdown as the Denver Nuggets, making their first-ever NBA Finals appearance, will face off against the Heat starting on Thursday, June 1.
The Nuggets had an amazing week, sweeping the L.A. Lakers to become the Western Conference champions. It was their first time ever sweeping a playoff series and their first victory over the Lakers in the playoffs.
The Heat earned their spot in the finals by winning Game 7 against the Celtics. Interestingly, this victory happened exactly one year after the Celtics won Game 7 on Miami’s home court to take the East title last year.
Jimmy Butler, a key player for the Heat, had boldly promised that they would be back in the finals this year and win it all. Guess what? His words came true as the Heat made an incredible comeback!
The Nuggets had their travel plans ready to face the Celtics, but the Heat had different plans. They won the deciding game to avoid becoming the first team in NBA history to lose after leading a series 3-0. So now, Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets are all set to take on the Heat in this epic battle.
This is the Heat’s seventh NBA Finals appearance, and they’re aiming for their fourth championship. But it’s the first time the Nuggets have reached this stage in their franchise history.
