The NBA Finals have arrived and the Miami Heat are set to take on the Denver Nuggets in the best-of-seven series for the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy.

After making quick work of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Los Angeles Lakers in a 4-0 sweep during the Western Conference Finals, two-time NBA MVP and reigning Western Conference Finals MVP Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets secured their first Western Conference title in franchise history.

The Miami Heat took the long path to the finals. As the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, they’ve upset every team thanks to the grit of their undrafted players and the leadership of Jimmy Butler and coach Erik Spoelstra. After defeating the No. 2 Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, Butler, the Eastern Conference Finals MVP, and company will be looking to win Miami’s fourth title in franchise history.
