    The BEST thing about this 7 game series is that we had MORE time with Ernie, Kenny, Chuck, & Shaq!! I'm gonna miss these guys over the summer😢 Miami DESERVED to win cause they played with more heart & better execution!

    The Heat faced the Celtics - a deep team clearly built for the star players but very disorganized and inconsistent. Now they play Denver - also a deep team clearly built for the star players, but more consistent and organized enough to withstand performance dips.
    May the best team win.

    People were saying Phoenix will beat Denver, then LA in 5, now they are disrespecting the Heat. As a Denver fan, I don’t think playing Miami is a cakewalk. They are resilient team with enough talent and great coach and unbelievable culture as an organization. I hope Nuggets bring their A game as they will need it.

      @TheDarkDevice nuggets vs heat will be exciting, I’m a nuggets fan man just imagine joker passing and iq match by jimmy’s grit that is very very wow, and I believe these two team will not flop just pure games go nuggets go heat but sadly only one will be champion. Coach Malone vs coach spo will be the side story here. 🥹🥹joker vs adebayo, Gordon vs jimmy, Caleb vs Murray the rest are good match up. Very very satisfying as a true basketball fans…

      I'm sorry but this is probably a sweep or to 5 games at most, this Heat is not built for these Nuggets. I think they could have been a handful for LA but not Denver. Bam goes from a top defender to almost a liability, and just overall not enough size or athleticism: too many players (Mal, MPJ, Jokic) that the Heat don't have real ways to guard (I mean, how?).
      Malone will probably tell the Nuggets to focus defense on chasing the Heat's shooters off the line and not overreacting to how heat like to set up shots from kickouts, just chase these guys off the line. Heat doesn't shoot well with active contests and I don't see how even Bam and Jimmy having amazing nights in the paint will outscore a complete offense that cannot be stopped. If they do it, it'll be 1 game, and there won't be another win in the series.

    Im very happy for the Heat and Im not even a Heat fan. The NBA has much more parity now and its made the game more exciting to watch. Im enjoying all the new superstars in this new generation. Less ego and more teamplay. I think players like Jimmy and Jokic are great examples of what todays superstars are like. They are giving hope and relevance to non-stacked teams. They show us how great teamwork and great leadership can beat anybody they play. Jimmy said tonight " I dont call them role players, I call them teammates". You gotta luv the guy. GL to both Heat and Nuggets. They are making the NBA a much better league to watch.

    I feel conflicted because this was my dream match up at the start of the playoff. Either Butler or Jokic getting a ring would be awesome. The only problem is, one of them will go home emptyhanded and who knows when they would be back. Hopefully it's going to be a 7 games series down to the wire. Either way, some history would be made. The lowest seed to win the ring is currently the 6th seed Rockets of 1995 with Kenny, or this could be the Nuggets first ring.

    The biggest concern is the Heat stealing Game 1, since the longer layoff may cause the Nuggets to come out flat. If the Nuggets can shake off those cobwebs and play their usual game, they will take Game 1 and then Game 2. I think the Heat, at home for Games 3 and 4, can win one of those games. But I have the Nuggets in 5 because they are just better and don't have the weaknesses the Celtics showed in the Eastern Conference Finals. Fun series coming up, at least for Nuggets fans! 😎

    • J-Hue

      This also happened when everyone was so hyped up that whoever wins the Philly/Boston series would have a free ticket to the Finals. And then Game 1 and 2 happened and all that momentum backlashed so hard for Boston that the Heat took Game 3 just from that. If the Nuggets lose 1 game at home, they better think fast because the Heat is that team.

      The Nuggets have Murray who is averaging 28 pts 5 rebounds 6 assists in the playoffs. Murray and Jokic are the best duo in the league.
      And the Nuggets have the best player in the NBA, Jokic. The Nuggets swept the Lakers 4-0, and Lakers are better than Miami. Miami is 0-6 against the Nuggets the past 3 years. It’s a bad matchup for the Heat. The Nuggets are younger, longer, taller, and faster. The Heat will win 1 game if they are lucky.

    A worry for Denver could be rust. Game 4 against the Lakers was a week ago, add another two days, that's 9, basically 10 days as it's a night game. The Heat played a tough series, but tonight wasn't physical or mental. They do have to travel all the way to Denver and deal with the altitude. Denver has a perfect record at home during these playoffs, but they've also played well on the road, getting one in Minnesota, one in Phoenix and obviously two in LA, against an in form Lakers team. Those three opponents were playing really well down the stretch of the regular season and during the playoffs, and the Nuggets didn't panic and played their game. Not every game was great, but they play team ball and their defense has improved this year, plus they are healthy. The Heat will not be a pushover, and they have road toughness and this will obviously give them confidence, especially after a tough loss in game 6. As Chuck and Shaq said, the Nuggets are more complete team and they are more talented, but the Heat are dangerous and in many ways they play as much as a team as Denver does. I don't see a sweep, but the Nuggets are the favorites. They have to be careful at the start the series, IMO.

      I just don't think 'rust' with professional basketball players in the playoffs of all things is a real thing. It's not like Jokic and the gang have just been sitting on the couch eating chips. The mere fact the Heat just won a grueling seven game series would give me pause more than the Nuggets getting some much needed rest before the NBA Finals.

    Miami has had a crazy run but I think the reality of them being an 8th seed going against the best team in the league will bring them back to earth. If they would’ve swept Boston then maybe but they went up 3-0 and let them come all the way back to tie. Denver will not be that undisciplined.

      @Derrick Yt Not talking about regular season. Those standings are irrelevant. So many factors play into the outcome of the regular season standings. No team has played better than the Nuggets up until now and I don’t see Miami doing anything to change that.

    From where I'm sitting, Miami/Boston, was a great series, going 7 games makes it tough to turn around and play the Nuggets, Denver needs to be wary of losing that first game due to rust, time off can hurt, I'm looking forward to a great series, my pick is Miami, My Two Cents!

    As much as I like the Heat, it will be very tough against the Nuggets. The Heat zone defense won’t work against a guy like Jokic. He will feed cutters or go one on one against Bam. Jokic Murray PnR against Vincent and Bam will open up so much for the Nuggets that I honestly can’t see the Heat stopping that. I really hope that it will be a competitive series. As of now I would say Nuggets in 5. The first game will be crucial for the Heat. Maybe the Nuggets will be a little rusty after the break.

That all being said Jimmy Buckets is a man on a mission and has that GOAT vibe goin' on. Been following Tyler Herro since prep school, so I'm with the Heat. The Joker's been wheelin' and dealin', no doubt. No matter what it's gonna be🍿 🍺🍕and 🔥.

    As someone who’s played a lot of basketball in New York City, FYI, Division I, high school, the Cage, and at Rucker park. I’ve seen a lot of basketball in my life. With that said, I’ve seen how back in the old days the bad boys of Detroit will play physical and brutal. However, has anyone ever notice how Miami started hurting people playing dirty, nasty and getting away with fouls with Gianni falling down on his back, Knicks center getting pocked in the and in game seven Miami player moving over and sticking out his leg, so Tatum falls on it and twisting his ankle. Plus a whole others I guess that’s all coincidence. As Miami coach Erik Spoelstra says, “his players are crafty.” I would hate to see a team as demonic as Miami playing so dirty, and getting away with it. I guess karma will come to them someday. Long live basketball and long live the Celtics and this is coming from a New Yorker.
    PS don’t be surprised if somebody from the Nuggets gets hurt really early.

    Denver is deep and big but imo if The Heat are going to win they have to shut down Murray as much as possible. If Bam can hinder Jokic like Draymond did then they’d be in great position but even if Jokic gets 30? If they can slow down Murray and the others they’d be good. Miami has the guards to bother Murray and if they can make Jokic work and still score on their end they have a shot. They’ve also been to the Finals before, Denver may be tense.

    Be careful dismissing this team. They are a group that has great chemistry, plays tough defense, and believes in each other.

      Mal hasn't been the 2nd best player, that's Jimmy Butler. Tatum is more significant than Mal is too.
      He has played like a top 10 player and has made it clear that Bubble Murray was not a fluke. His star will rise, but we can't put him ahead of Jimmy Butler.
      Will be Nuggets in 4 or 5 though, terrible matchup for the Heat.

      They were not underrated at all, they barely made the 8t seed so they were rated accordingly.

  • Timothy Thomas

    I'm not certain, nor have I heard this mentioned, but how many players on both rosters have a ring, if any? Both teams will be hungry for the taste of the title. Gotta agree with most here that Denver has the edge, being well rested and ready, but can that create a cold spell? Probably not since they hit the gym everyday for practice since sweeping the Lakers. Miami is riding a high winning 3 of their 4 games in Boston, but could that hard fought 7 game series have worn them out for this final one? I don't see that happening either. Miami will be hyped up big time on nothing but guts, determination, and sheer adrenaline just to be there. This is gonna be epic. Ain't no sweep happening though it wouldn't surprise me to see Denver up 2-0 going to game 3. Miami will win game 3. That's as far as I'm thinking ahead lol

    I think Denver wins in 5. Miami may have been playing well away in the playoffs, but I don't think they can win in that altitude. This Nuggets team are the best team in the league in terms of talent and depth and they have the best player in the league. On top of that, they have the ultimate homecourt advantage in that altitude. The lack of depth will hit hard for Miami and they will be dead tired by Game 3.

    The shooting percentage is what would concern me if I was the Heat. I have no rooting interest in this series, I hope for an entertaining finals...but there's one certainty: if a team shoots over 55% in a series, it's not possible to beat them 4 out of 7, and the Nugs shot 58 and 59 in the regular season matchups. That's a problem.

    The Heat have no chance going up against Denver, that’s a completely different beast. The Nuggets have a system that requires discipline.
