The Heat pulled off a thrilling victory in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, defeating the Nuggets by a slim margin of 111-108 to even the series at 1-1. In the midst of their triumph, 26-year-old point guard Gabe Vincent, who stepped up as the leading scorer for Miami with 23 points, made it clear that the team is not concerned about the disrespect they’ve been facing.

During a recent interview, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal asked Vincent about the team’s reaction to the widespread belief that the Nuggets are heavy favorites in the Finals. Vincent responded with conviction, saying, “I speak for my whole team when I say we don’t give a damn. We just want to get four wins. We’re gonna give a damn about none of the other stuff.”

Vincent, who entered the league undrafted, has been a crucial contributor for the Heat throughout the Finals, averaging 21 points per game. His impressive performance, along with the unwavering determination of his teammates, has propelled Miami to fight against any notions of being disrespected.

As the series heads to Miami for the next two games, the Heat will use their home-court advantage to further demonstrate their resilience and prove that they are a force to be reckoned with. Vincent’s fearless attitude and scoring prowess will continue to be vital as Miami seeks to secure their third NBA championship.
