Game 3 was tight early, but the Denver Nuggets went on a run out of halftime and never looked back. It’s a tough home loss for the Miami Heat and makes Game 4 a must-win matchup now. Tip off from the Kaseya Center in Miami is set for 8:30 p.m. ET on Friday.
Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray led this team to a victory as they became the first duo in NBA Finals history to both have a triple-double. After a shocking loss in Game 2, the Nuggets looked like their regular selves defensively in Game 3. The Nuggets needed Jokic and Murray to score a ton as they both scored 30+ points, while the rest of their starters combined for 19 points. Christian Braun provided a spark for the Nuggets off the bench as he was the third-leading scorer with 15 points.
The Heat were a major letdown in Game 3. After pulling off the upset in Denver, their offense had major struggles in their return home. Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler scored 20+ points, but following them their top scorer was Caleb Martin who had 10 points. They will need more from Gabe Vincent and other starters in Game 4 to avoid losing two straight home games.
