NBA Finals 2023: Denver Nuggets reach for glory

por Roberto Anidos publicado en 2023 Decade 2020 Denver Nuggets Miami Heat NBA

In the 2023 NBA, the Denver Nuggets were proclaimed champions at the first opportunity they had. To do so, they clearly beat the Miami Heat in the finals (4-1). The Florida Nuggets managed to pull out a victory in Denver in the second game of the series, but then they could do nothing against the power of the West

Nikola Jokic, awarded the MVP, played at an extraordinary level, and was excellently supported by Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon, although without losing sight of the fact that everything, everything, revolved around the talent of the Serbian center.

Miami, where the best were Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler, always gave a feeling of physical fatigue after qualifying for the finals from the eighth place in the regular season, beating the Eastern favorites, Bucks and Celtics, to do so.
