Heat on their must-win situation on Monday: Going to be a gnarly game
Aaron Gordon scored 27 points, Nikola Jokic added 23 and the Denver Nuggets moved one win away from their first NBA championship by beating the Miami Heat 108-95 on Friday night to take a 3-1 lead in the title series.
Bruce Brown scored 21 off the bench for the Nuggets, who took both games in Miami to grab complete command. They'll have three chances to win one game for a title, two of those in Denver, the first of them in what's sure to be a raucous atmosphere for Game 5 on Monday night.
Jamal Murray had 15 points and 12 assists - his fourth consecutive double-digit assist game - for Denver.
