  • Game 1 is played at Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado.
  • Denver’s superstar Nikola Jokic ready for another historic performance.

We’ve got some NBA player props for you!

The time has finally come for the 2023 NBA Finals. We’ve waited a while for Game 1 because it took seven games for the Miami Heat to win the Eastern Conference Finals. Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets did their job of winning the Western Conference in just four games, mainly because Nikola Jokic absolutely destroyed the LA Lakers in each match of the series.

The two-time NBA MVP recorded a triple-double in three of those games, and we wonder whether he can do it in Game 1 of the Heat vs Nuggets series as well. Keep reading our NBA player props piece to find out the answer.

Prop Pick

We have a great record when it comes to player prop bets for the NBA games involving the Denver Nuggets. This goes especially for Nikola Jokic props, with which we’ve had a 100% success rate since April. Are we going to hit another one? We sure hope so.

Our prediction is that the Serbian center is going to have a great game this evening, recording another triple-double. There are several reasons why we’re confident this is going to happen. First of all, he’s been playing fantastic basketball since the start of the postseason.

In the 2023 NBA playoffs, Jokic is averaging 29.9 points per game, along with 13.3 rebounds, and 10.3 assists. What this basically means is that he’s recording a triple-double per game on average.

Another reason why we think he’s going to do it again is that Game 1 of the 2023 NBA Finals is played in Denver. Ball Arena is his fortress where he always plays great. This time, he’s bound to do even better as the Nuggets’ fans are going to give their utmost to help their boys win their first NBA Championship in the history of the franchise.

But is there a way the Heat players can stop “Joker” somehow? After all, they managed to hold the Boston Celtics to just 84 points in their last game. Well, Bam Adebayo sure is one hell of a defensive player. However, Jokic has already proved he can deal with such players. For instance, Anthony Davis had nothing on him in the four games of the Western Finals.
