(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Seol Ha-eun = The Denver Nuggets, who first arrived in the NBA championship match, seem unable to smile.

AFP reported on the 27th (hereafter Korean time) that Denver coach Michael Malone, who had a long break, said, “It is difficult to maintain a sense of the game.”

Denver defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 113-111 in Game 4 of the 2022-2023 NBA Western Conference Finals (4 wins out of 7) held at Arena in Los Angeles, California (LA) on the 23rd and swept the series with 4 consecutive wins, making it the club’s history. It was the first time he had advanced to the championship match.

Denver will face the winners of the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, who are in the Eastern Conference finals, in the championship match on the 2nd of next month.

Ten days after the last real match, we will have the first leg of the championship match.

Coach Malone said, “I’ve been playing once every two days, but I unexpectedly took a 10-day break.”

He drew a line, saying, “Practice is just practice, and it is definitely different from actual combat.”

Here, the opponent for the championship match has not yet been decided.

Initially, it seemed that Miami would easily advance to the championship game by sweeping the 1st to 3rd games, but Boston succeeded in counterattacking in the 4th and 5th games in a row.

While Miami still leads the series with a 3-2 record and never before in NBA history has a team with a 3-0 lead in the playoffs been reversed, the mood is queer.

For Malone, this is also a concern.

Manager Malone sighed, saying, “I have no idea who the final opponent will be. I can’t even prepare tactics tailored to the opponent.”
