What can Brown do for the Denver Nuggets?

He has them one win from their first championship in franchise history.

Bruce Brown scored 21 points off the bench to help Denver beat the Miami Heat 108-95 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night. He was at his best after Nikola Jokic exited early in the fourth quarter because of foul trouble, helping the Nuggets weather the storm instead of blowing another double-digit lead.

Knowing the Heat would focus on trying to take Jamal Murray out of the game, Brown put his mind to being assertive - and it worked.

"The other four players were going to have to make plays," Brown said. "Luckily, it was just my time."

Was it ever. Brown shot 4 of 5 from the field and scored 11 points in the fourth quarter alone, playing a major role in fending off the Heat without Jokic on the floor for several minutes.

"Bruce Brown in the fourth quarter was amazing," coach Michael Malone said. "They were giving Jamal so much attention that, let's get Jamal off the ball, let Bruce make some plays. He was aggressive, got to the basket, made shots and tonight was an impressive performance."
