This Miami Heat team sure does like to do things the hard way.

A lot of talk went into game 7 as the Heat were trying to avoid becoming the first team in NBA history to lose a 3-0 series lead, especially after that epic buzzer beater loss in game 6.

But, as Jimmy Butler said last year after losing to the Celtics in game 7, they would be back and they would win it this time around.

And they did.

The Miami Heat have now advanced to their 7th Finals in franchise history after blowing out the Celtics in Boston, 103 -84, and will faceoff against the Denver Nuggets who will be playing in their first ever Finals. The match up pins two superstars in Jimmy Butler and Nikola Jokic up against each other, both of which are looking for their first championship.

Game 1 is set for Thursday night in Denver.
