NBA Finals 2023: Heat Win Series in Game 7

Jun 5, 2023
NBA Finals

The Miami Heat closed out the Eastern Conference finals series against the Boston Celtics with a Game 7 win and face the Denver Nuggets in the championship.

The Miami Heat are the second No. 8 seed in NBA history to appear in the Finals. The Denver Nuggets are appearing in the Finals for the first time and swept the Los Angeles Lakers. They will have home court advantage against the Heat.

All four rounds of the NBA playoffs are a best of seven, as has been the case since 2003. The NBA does not reseed after each round, so the bracket is set at the start of the tournament.

The top six teams in each conference automatically qualified for the playoffs, while the teams that finished the regular season in seventh through 10th places advanced to the NBA’s play-in tournament to determine the final two playoff teams in each conference.
