The main basketball event of the year.
We were waiting for this, we deserve it! Two of the most worthy teams will meet in the NBA Finals: Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat. Mike Malone’s wards took first place in the regular season and reached the current stage without any problems. Denver got plenty of rest: His pitch remains in question. But Eric Spoelstra’s boys ended a seven-game series with the Boston Celtics a couple of days ago. Notably, Miami became the first team since 1999 (the New York Knicks) to reach the Finals as the eighth seed.
“Campeonato” will carry out an online broadcast of the first match. The start is at 3:30 Moscow time.
