The Miami Heat are a defensive team. In short-term matches, teams with strong defense have an absolute advantage.
It was thanks to a solid defense that Miami was able to win and win despite receiving the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference. In particular, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo are key to Miami’s defense.
However, their defense is becoming ‘useless’ in front of the Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic. It was evident in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.스포츠토토
Adebayo couldn’t stop Jokic, who was five centimeters taller than himself and weighed 13 kilograms more. Foul play was the only option.
The reason Yokichi is terrifying is that he is good at assists as well as his control under the goal. This is why Denver doesn’t just ask Jokic to score. His passes are unstoppable by the Miami defense.
Thus, Miami had the homework to effectively block Jokic with all five players.
