Denver Nuggets are one win away from becoming NBA Champions, Miami Heat struggle at home

The Denver Nuggets are one win away from becoming NBA Champions. They can do it on their home court.

Aaron Gordon scored 27 points, Nikola Jokic added 23 as the Nuggets beat the Miami Heat 108-95 to take a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.

Denver extended its road winning streak to five games, and Miami lost its fourth consecutive home game.

“We are not scared of the moment; we believe in each other,” Jokic said. “Especially on the road, you need to trust each other.”

The Nuggets have waited 47 years for their first NBA title.

Jamal Murray had 15 points, 12 assists, and zero turnovers.

Jimmy Butler scored 25 points for the Heat, who started the playoffs 6-0 at home but 0-4 on their home floor since.

“We have to win,” Butler said. “We have no other choice.”

Teams that led the NBA Finals 3-1 are 35-1. The only other instance was the Cleveland Cavaliers’ comeback against the Golden State Warriors in 2016.

Game 5 is Monday in Denver.
