Denver Nuggets NBA Finals Schedule Scenarios

For the first time in franchise history, the Denver Nuggets are heading to the NBA Finals.

After sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals, it remains to be seen who they will play next. Although it seems extremely likely to be the Miami Heat.

Miami leads the Boston Celtics 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, with Game 4 scheduled for Tuesday night in Miami. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in NBA history, so the Nuggets can probably start booking their travel plans now.

Boston is the only team left with a better record than the Nuggets, so if the Celtics are able to pull off the impossible, they’ll have home-court advantage in the NBA Finals.
