Currently tied 1-1, the 2023 NBA Finals could go down as an all-time classic.
In Game 1, Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets took care of business at home, and Joker joined Jason Kidd as the only players in NBA history to record a debut triple-double in the NBA Finals. Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat weren’t just going to roll over and let Denver do whatever they wanted in their matchup. They trailed by double digits at one point in Game 2, but managed to pull off a comeback win, something the franchise is no stranger to. Now that the series is knotted at one, it all shifts to South Beach for Games 3 and 4, with the former tipping off Wednesday night at 8:30pm ET on ABC.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. In NBA Finals history, only 22 NBA players have recorded at least one triple-double in the NBA Finals, including both Jokic and Butler. So, with that in mind, how many of the 22 can you name in five minutes?
