As good a team as the Miami Heat are, they’re far from flawless.
And they’re now going against arguably the best team in the league in the Denver Nuggets, which is why plenty of people believe they stand no chance in this series.
We can add analyst Craig Carton to that list of people, as he recently put together a hilarious list of reasons why the Heat are “finished” after dropping Game 1 on the road.

First, Carton pointed out the obvious by stating that the Heat lack the size to match up with the Nuggets, as Aaron Gordon and Nikola Jokic can get whatever they want in the restricted area, and Bam Adebayo can only do so much against them.
Then, he talked about Jokic being unstoppable, which is pretty much self-explanatory.
At No. 3, Carton pointed out the Heat’s lack of depth and talent, which is also an obvious issue, given the fact that Tyler Herro is out with an injury and Jimmy Butler is their only All-Star caliber player.
Then, at Nos. 2 and 1, Carton once again hilariously referred to how unstoppable Jokic is.
Jokic has played himself into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame already.
He’s become the most revolutionary and mesmerizing offensive force in the league, establishing himself as the true unicorn and the ultimate triple-threat kind of player.
The Heat will need to hit the drawing board again and figure out the best way to contain him, but there’s just no way to stop him right now.NEXT: Jimmy Butler Has The Perfect Pregame Shirt Before Game 1
