So far in the playoffs, Denver is shooting 49 per cent from the floor and 38.6 per cent from the 3-point area. The Joker is the mastermind behind Denver’s smart attack.

The Miami Heat is not deterred by anything. After violating the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round, the New York Knicks in the second round, and the Boston Celtics in an intriguing seven-game stretch in the Eastern Conference Finals, Jimmy Butler and the Heat have proven once and for all that they are worthy contenders to win it all this season.
Butler heads the Heat in the playoffs with 28.5 points on 48.3 per cent shooting from the floor.
Miami also succeeds in getting sufficient support from its undrafted players. In the conference finals versus Boston, Caleb Martin averaged 19.3 points, Gabe Vincent 15.8, and Duncan Robinson, 11.4, each one shooting 48 per cent or higher from behind the arc. The three-ball is going to be a big weapon for the Heat.
The Denver Nuggets are coasting to a double-digit win, courtesy of Jokic’s offensive mastery and the Nuggets’ rebounding skills.
Final Prediction: Denver Nuggets Moneyline.
