For the first time in their 47-year NBA history, the Denver Nuggets won the NBA Finals on Monday night.
In five games, the Denver Nuggets won the best-of-seven series against the Miami Heat, 94-89.
The 28-year-old Serbian center for the Nuggets, Nikola Joki, was awarded the NBA Finals most valuable player after leading his team in scoring and grabbing 16 rebounds.
Just after the game, Jokic said, "It was a fantastic effort by the squad. "It was a bad game; we had trouble making shots. But in the end, we were able to mount a defense. We were successful because of this.
To celebrate the historic victory, Denver supporters took to the streets and social media. Crowds of spectators had gathered in downtown Denver, cheering, scaling light posts, and firing off fireworks, according to local news footage.
One supporter tweeted, "I never thought I'd see the Denver Nuggets win a championship. ever." But with the 41st choice, we selected a Serbian center who was 19 years old, and he just guided us to a championship.
Additionally, supporters of other NBA clubs celebrated Denver's first win.
"Fans of teams with multiple championships don't understand what it's like as a fan to see this statistic go from 0 to 1 for your favorite team," a Dallas Mavericks supporter tweeted. "Well done, Denver fans. Have a great time with it! Let it make you joyful.
A Heat supporter yelled, "Congratulations to Denver!" "I swear, if my team wasn't competing on the opposing side, I'd be rooting for y'all. For Jokic, I am overjoyed. I'm overjoyed by the supporters! Your first championship ever is here! Other than Miami, I couldn't think of anyone who deserved it more.
Following the win, Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone referred to Miami Heat President and former coach Pat Riley, saying he had a quote from him about "the evolution in this game, and how you go from a nobody to an upstart, and an upstart to a winner, and a winner to a contender, and a contender to a champion, and the last step after a champion is to be a dynasty, so we're not satisfied."
Although having a lot of young, skilled players in the locker room, Malone said, "We accomplished something this franchise has never done. I think we just showed through 16 playoff wins what we're capable of on the biggest stage in the world."
