Who ya' got Heat or Nuggets?

The Nuggets are the logical choice but if Miami can have Bam crowd Yokic and takeaway his outside shot and his penetration they will have changed
the Nuggets offense. They are better when Yokic is up top. Also make Aaron Gordon shoot from the outside and make him beat you.
Finally, if Miami can keep the tempo slow then each possession means more.
They are a little more old school as opposed to most teams that are just chucking threes.

I won’t write the Heat off, they’re a tough team. But ultimately I think Denver has the better offense with Jokic and Murray. Now if Caleb Martin of the Heat plays like he’s been playing and Jimmy Butler plays well, the Heat could win.

I watched more NBA playoffs this year than usual, and I didn't really see any of the Eastern Conf teams being the equal of the better Western conference teams.

But then, I'm not really an expert, more of a casual fan

Especially given our Rockies and Broncos are in a heavy drought period (to put it mildly).

That and I'd LOVE to see DeSantis constantly asked about Governor Jared Polis' (CO) bet that would have Disney relocating to Colorado (yeah, tongue-in-cheek, but still a nice jab).
