Writing about the NBA Finals isn’t easy. Every schmuck with a laptop is watching the same games, hitting on the same stories, and covering the same angles. We are legion: thousands of beach bums with metal detectors combing the same ten square feet of sand over and over. It can be difficult to find something new.
Fantastic breakdown, thank you for this!
As a nuggs fan, I fully believe they will win, but the thing that scares me about Miami is their ability to play at their top level for 48 minutes every game. They can will all the little battles, play great D, slow the game down, and hit enough shots to win any game. But, as you say, even if they do this, and Denver doesn't shoot well, it still may not be enough. Was very glad that the Nuggs got the Heat in the finals since it is such a good match-up for them, but now seeing why the Heat are so good in the playoffs.
