Game 5 NBA Finals

Game 5 of the 2023 NBA finals is going to be played between the West champion, Denver Nuggets, and the East champion, Miami Heat.


Both the teams have not won an NBA title for a very long time, the last being in 2013 for the Miami Heat while the Nuggets’ championship bucket is still vacant. Thus, whoever the winner, it will be a historic win for them.


Game 4 of the NBA Finals was won by the Denver Nuggets and they lead the series by 3-1. From the Nuggets’ side it was a team effort, with everyone scoring some points. Aaron Gordon scored 27 points and was the leading scorer for the team in Game 4. Now, the Denver Nuggets are just one win away from their first-ever franchise title. Interestingly, Game 5 is also in their home, Ball Arena.


Jimmy Butler with 27 points was the top scorer for the Miami Heat. Now, they cannot afford a single loss. “We are in a must-win situation, every single game - which we are capable of, it’s not impossible,” Jimmy Butler said in the post-match presentation.


Game 4 Recap

The Nuggets outperformed the Heat by winning Game 4 108-95, hence leading the series 3-1.


The Denver Nuggets with one more win can lift the championship trophy for the first time. With Aaron Gordon's remarkable 27 points, Nikola Jokic’s 23 points, and Bruce Brown off the bench with 21 points, the Nuggets again defeated the Heat in a close match on Friday to lead the series by 3-1.


Jamal Murray posted 15 points, 12 assists a game, and Game 4 was the fourth consecutive time he showcased a double-digit in terms of assists.


While from Miami's side, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo are only the two individuals who were left scoring. Butler scored 27 points, Bam had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Kyle Lowry posted an 11-point game.
