Miami hurriedly cut it off with a foul, and Caldwell Pope made two free throws to make it three points. Afterwards, Bruce Brown (10 points) finished the game with two free throws while Butler and Kyle Lowry’s 3-pointers (12 points) turned away.
Jokic, who won the regular league MVP for consecutive seasons 2020-2021 and 2021-2022, did not win this award this season because he was pushed by Joel Embiid (Philadelphia), but he laughed at the end by winning the first championship in his life. .
In an interview after winning the championship, Jokichi said, “It’s good. The job is over. Now I can go home,” he said calmly.
