The previous NBA champions were the Golden State Warriors, who were eliminated in the West semis. 

Eventually, the Denver Nuggets won the Western Conference by beating the LA Lakers 4-0 in the finals. Previously, the Nuggets were better than the Timberwolves and the Suns. Nikola Jokic is the best player, with a triple-double average per game, scoring almost 30 buckets each night. Jamal Murray has 27.7.

The Miami Heat are in the NBA Finals, yet they started in the playoffs. Following a loss over the Hawks in the first game, they defeated the Bulls, then beat the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round, the Knicks in the next, before a seven-game roller coaster against the Celtics. Jimmy Butler is the top player in Miami, with 28.5 buckets.

Denver has the home-floor advantage, and we all know that the fans in Colorado are wild. The Nuggets also haven’t lost at the Ball Arena in the playoffs, so that will be a big factor. Another is Miami’s fatigue after incredibly tough games against the Celtics. So for these two reasons and that they have the best player in the league, Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets are the favorites.
