Nuggets rout Heat in Game 4, look ready to hammer last nail in Miami's coffin
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.
Jimmy Butler scored 25 points for Miami, which has now fallen into 3-1 holes in each of its last three finals appearances - this one joining 2014 and 2020. Bam Adebayo had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, while Kyle Lowry had 13 points.
The Heat walked off the floor in silence, fully aware of how much trouble they're in now.
