The NBA faces the final stretch of the season. Within the framework of some exciting playoffs, four franchises complete the conference finals in this 2022/23 edition: Denver Nuggets, los angeles lakers, Boston Celtics y Miami Heat.
In the West, the regularity and efficiency of a team as well worked as Mike Budenholzer’s Denver Nuggets will test a team that has bordered on competitive excellence in the postseason like Darvin Ham’s Los Angeles Lakers. And Nikola Jokic contra LeBron James manual, plus stars like Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr. o Aaron Gordonon the one hand, and Anthony Davis, Austin Reaves o D’Angello Russellin the other one.
In the East, the defensive brilliance of the Boston Celtics of Joe Mazzulla will measure their real ceiling against a team without complexes like the Miami Heat of Erik Spoelstra. Jayson Tatum exploded with 51 points in Game 7 against Philadelphia 76erswhile Jimmy Butler activated his ‘playoff mode’ to eliminate the Bucks of Antetokounmpo already the Knicks of Brunson. “Next year, we’re going to have enough, we’re going to be back in the same situation and we’re going to do the job this time,” the Heat star said last season. Will there be revenge?
These conference finals have a particularly curious feature: they are the same pairings as the season marked by the pandemicwhere the four franchises sought the ring in the Orlando bubble.
