DENVER – History will unfold on Denver7 starting June 1.

For the first time in franchise history, the Denver Nuggets will play for an NBA championship after sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in the West Finals.

Denver will play the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat. Miami on Monday avoided being on the wrong side of history by winning Game 7 of the East finals against the Celtics in Boston.

The Celtics had become just the fifth team in NBA history to even a playoff series after falling in a 0-3 hole. With the Lakers' and Celtics' losses, teams are now 0-151 in series after trailing 3-0.

The Nuggets will have home court advantage in the Finals against the Heat, who were the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
