Denver has won Game 1 of its first National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals since its inception. The Nuggets defeated the Miami Heat 104-93 on Sunday in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series to determine the NBA champion for the 2022-2023 season. It was the first championship game win for the Nuggets since their inception. Founded in 1967, Denver competed in the American Basketball Association (ABA) before moving to the NBA in 1976.스포츠토토
The Nuggets were led by “Triple Doubler” Nikola Jokic (pictured). Jokic scored a game-high 27 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 14 assists. With the win, Jokic extended his single-season playoffs (PO) record for most triple-doubles in a season to nine, set on 23 March in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. In 16 PO games this season, Jokic is averaging 29.8 points, 13.1 rebounds, and 10.5 assists. “The most important thing is to win this Finals,” Jokic said. We’re going to do everything we can to win the rest of the games.”
Miami, who made a surprise run to win the Eastern Conference title after clinching the eighth seed, the last ticket to the POs, had a tough game as their ‘ace’ Jimmy Butler was held to just 13 points. Prior to this game, Butler had averaged 28.5 points per game in the PO this season. Game 2 between the two teams will take place on the 5th.
