The Nuggets won 109-94 on Nikola Jokic’s 109th day of his age, Wednesday, June 7, 2023. Notice they won by 15, like his jersey number, and Miami lost with 94 points (Denver = 94 + an NBA court is 94′ long). Adding to the ritual, the Nuggets have now outscored Miami by 23 points in the series (Joker = 23), and in this game Jokic scored 32 points (Denver = 32). As they say, they couldn’t have scripted it any better.
Also, this is the 76th NBA anniversary season, the Nuggets joined the NBA in ’76, and the date of this record can be written 7/6.
