The NBA Finals begin Thursday with the Miami Heat facing the Denver Nuggets for the championship. Denver was expected to be here as the No. 1 seed in the West.
Not the case for the Heat. A month and a half ago, the Heat trailed Chicago in the fourth quarter of the play-in game before scoring 15 of the final 16 points to advance to the first round.
After upsetting the Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, the Heat have earned the title of the NBA’s Cinderella.
They are four wins away from securing the ultimate surprise championship.
