Denver Nuggets Team News
Denver reached the Grand Final for the first time in its history, and now they want to get their first championship. If we look at everything shown this season, Denver deserved it. First of all, they played great throughout the regular season and were the best in the West. They were very dominant throughout the playoffs. They defeated Minnesota in the first round of the playoffs, and then in the semifinals they beat the Phoenix Suns, who were the first favorites to win the ring according to bookmakers, led by Booker and Durant, but Denver was very confident in that series as well. In the finals, they “swept” the Lakers and secured a seven-day longer rest, while Miami and Boston went to the seventh game.
Nikola Jokic is not the MVP of the NBA this year, but he has another goal, which is an NBA ring and to become the MVP of the finals. He is the alpha and omega of the Denver team, he is playing in an unreal playoff and is averaging a triple-double. What makes Jokic different from the others is that he makes his teammates twice as good and better. Murray is back and reminds me of Murray before the injury. He had unreal games against the Lakers when he was pulling the Nuggets by himself.
The biggest strength of the Nuggets, however, is width, team plays, and continuity of joint games. Denver management believed in their process and their young players. Has the time come for them to reap the fruits of their labor and patience?

Miami Heat Team News
When talking about continuity and trust, the team from Florida is a real example of how a top franchise should work. It has rarely happened in the history of the NBA that a team that is the 8th seed in the East reaches The Finals. First, they knocked out the first-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, who were dominant throughout the season. In the semi-finals, they easily defeated the New York Knicks. In the East Finals, they played against the Celtics, where they had a 3-0 advantage with two breaks, but in the end, the seventh game was decisive, where the Heat once again showed their mental strength and experience and won.
Miami did all this without two very important players and the rotation of Herro and Oladipo. However, in Miami, every player gets his role and is used to the maximum. Players who were never drafted and who were released during the season found their place under the sun in Miami. Although Jimmy Butler is the leader of this team and plays unreal, players like Strus, Vincent, and Martin are still the main factors why Miami is in the Finals.
During the season, Butler plays at half throttle, but when the playoffs start, he switches to Jordan mode and starts stomping.
The problem for Miami is little time for recovery and regeneration between series, but also the fact that the Nuggets are undefeated as hosts in this playoff.
