Michael Malonetechnician of the Denver Nuggets already waiting for the development of the final of the NBA which those from Colorado will play against Miami Heat from next June 1st.
The coach assured that it will be the toughest challenge for his team and praised his rival, especially his figure from the Heat, Jimmy Butler.
“Let’s forget about them being eighth seeds. They won the series 4-1 against Milwaukee, which was the winningest team in the NBA this year. They beat Boston 4-3 and were up 3-0, against the second team with more victories in the NBA this year. When you get to the Finals there is no longer talk of seeding,” he said at the beginning.
“To those who think this is going to be an easy series, I don’t even know what to say anymore. It’s going to be the biggest challenge of our lives. “We’re trying to win the first NBA title in franchise history, and it’s going to be the more complicated,” he added.
For his part, he praised Butler and his winning ability this season: “We’re trying to win the first NBA title in franchise history, and it’s going to be the toughest thing.”
Finally, Malone mentioned that the Heat have done a great collective job to be in the Finals.
“The two teams with the best ‘playoff’ 3-point percentages will be up against each other. They are ahead of us at 39%. Obviously Butler and Adebayo draw a lot of attention, but you have to give credit to Caleb Martin and Gabe Vincent. We know that Duncan Robinson is a great shooter, we know that Max Strus is a great shooter. And Tyler Herro will be back at some point,” he concluded.
