GM 2 Miami Heat Vs. Denver Nuggets
The first handful of June days have been completed. The month is early but the first game I was able to lock in on was GM 2 of the 2023 NBA finals. It was complete domination by TPBMarc! The MIA Heat have showed 2023 road playoff Moxy from their initial series against the Milwaukee Bucks. The team had an off shooting night in GM 1 but in my Game Day Preview article a few things stuck out.
My grandmother always told me the self praise stinks. However Nanny never went 9 for 10 with her picks leading a DOMINANT 51 PT V.I.C.T.O.R.Y in @thePeachBasket_ NBA Pick'EM!

- Denver Nuggets Coach did not like the performance of his team despite the game’s final score. You can not fault the Nuggets for feeling a little overconfident as they have rolled in all HOME playoff games. (9-0 record prior to loosing last night)
- A message of confidence coming from Miami Coach Eric Spoelstra and Jimmy Butler. A ton of open looks for Miami in GM 1. If they had fallen, the complexion of this game could have been different. I just thought that the same looks would be available to for Miami in GM 2.
For these reasons I loaded up on bounce back Miami selections.
Key Heat Vs. Nuggets Stats the Lead TPBMarc to Victory
It is so important to hit your top picks! Gabe Vincent went 4-6 from beyond the arch which booked me 10 pts. Jimmy Butler being able to dish out 9 assists notched another 9 pts. An additional 15 points were earned from Mas Strus having a bound back night. In the opener of this best of 7 series Max had gone 0-9 from three point land and finished with 0 points. The GM 2 stat line told quite a different tale. 12 of his 14 points came from downtown!
Initial June NBA Pick’EM update
Go ahead and put the community on notice that TPBMarc is going to be a tough one to take down. Two contest wins already but JoseAgain3 trails by only one game.
