Terrell Davis is one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. The Denver Broncos legend played 7 seasons in the league and played a massive role in the Broncos winning back-to-back Super Bowl rings in 1997 and 1998. Recently, the iconic running back attended game 2 of the NBA Finals matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat at Ball Arena, Denver.
The Denver Nuggets, led by their 2-time MVP centerNikola Jokić, faced theJimmy Butler-led Miami Heat in Game 2 of the 7 games series on Sunday. The Denver legend Terrell Davis was in attendance to witness the Nuggets in action against the Heat. However, the game didn’t go the way Davis would’ve hoped it to.
Jokić’s masterful performance where he put up 41 points went in vain as the Nuggets lost Game 2 111-108 in a close game against the Heat. With that victory, the Heat tied the 7-game series 1-1. And now, the Denver-based basketball team would travel East to face the Miami-based NBA franchise in Game 3 on Wednesday.
The Nuggets fans, including the Denver football legend Terrell Davis, had a miserable Sunday night as they witnessed their team lose on their home court. Davis, who was seated next to a couple of Miami fans, looked visibly fed up as the Heat fans celebrated their team’s performance right in front of the iconic running back’s face.
Nevertheless, the 2-time Super Bowl Champion Davis would certainly enjoy if the Nuggets went into FTX Arena on Sunday and beat the Heat on their home court in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
