The Heat will return, three years later, to the NBA final, the seventh in its history, where the Denver Nuggets await it, after winning on the night of Monday to Tuesday in Boston (103-84), thanks to to Caleb Martin and Jimmy Butlerin the decisive seventh game of their series.
Miami is not only on the verge of a fourth title, after those gleaned in 2006, 2012 and 2013 (failures in 2011, 2014 and 2020), but can achieve what no team has yet achieved in history: to be crowned champion by having been seeded N.8, moreover, after having had to go through play-offs to reach the play-offs. In 1999, the New York Knicks, also eighth in the East, had already managed to reach the final, but then fell to the sacred San Antonio Spurs.
There is no doubt that the Heat are dreaming of another scenario, carried by the energy of the warriors that we give do not give winners and who ultimately overthrow mountains. After the Bucks of Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Knicks of Jalen Brunson and the Celtics of Jayson Tatum, they will play at even higher altitude against the Nuggets, literally – Denver, nicknamed “Mile High City”, culminates at 1,500 m – as in figured, with Jokic and his gang who unceremoniously dismissed LeBron James’ Lakers (4-0).
