The 18 points scored by Nunn were the most by a rookie player off of the bench in the NBA Finals since Lakers center Elden Campbell had 21 points in 1991 versus the Chicago Bulls, according to Basketball-Reference. The 18 points are also a new playoff career-high and it marked the first time this postseason scoring in double figures. Afterward, Spoelstra said it was nice to see Nunn play well.
