NBA preview 19 -25 May 2023

The focus this week falls on the Conference finals, as the Denver Nuggets face off against the Los Angeles Lakers in Games 2, 3 and 4 in the West on the mornings of Friday 19, 21 and 23 May (02:30 LIVE on ESPN 2).


The Nuggets defeated the Phoenix Suns 4-2 in their Conference semifinal series, while the Lakers ended the reign of the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors, with a 4-2 win in their series.

The Lakers started the season with a 2-10 record in their first 12 games, but a mid-season roster overhaul has sparked a brilliant run: “I felt like if we ever had an opportunity to upgrade our roster and put some more balance around myself and [Anthony Davis], I felt like we could make a run,” said LeBron James.

“I just wanted to come in and make some plays and be efficient and defend at a high level and help [Davis] rebound. Help our team make winning plays. And I was able to make a few of them.”

Over in the East, the Miami Heat (fresh from defeating the New York Knicks 4-2) will face off against the Boston Celtics who claimed an epic 4-3 series win over the Philadelphia 76ers, which wrapped up on Sunday night. Their Game 2 and 3 clashes are set for the mornings of Saturday 20 and Monday 22 May respectively (02:30 LIVE on ESPN 2).

“We’re one step closer to our goal,” said Heat star Jimmy Butler. “We already knew what we were capable of from the jump, I’m talking about the beginning of the season. We got eight more to get. I always say we’re always going to be in this thing together. So proud of all of my guys for playing as hard as we did today and like I said, we got eight more.”
