How and where to watch the NBA Finals in Australia - ESPN
ESPN staffMay 30, 2023, 05:00 PM ET
Denver Nuggets, who will be making their first appearance in the NBA Finals, are overwhelming favourites to beat the Miami Heat.
The Heat are only the second 8-seed team to capture a conference championship, and just the third team to win its first three series as an underdog.
Are two-time league MVP Nikola Jokic and his Nuggets all but home? Can Jimmy Butler inspire his team to one more series upset and complete one of the greatest against-all-odds runs seen in professional sport?
