Denver Nuggets with a hand on the NBA trophy after taking a 3-1 lead in the final series

The Denver Nuggets are one game away from claiming their first NBA championship after dismantling the Miami Heat 108-95 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The Nuggets return to Denver for Game 5 of the seven-game series, where they will look to win the franchise’s first Larry O’Brien Trophy in its 56-year history.

Nikola Jokic again proved to be a mismatch for Miami, with the Serb recording 23 points and 10 rebounds.

He was ably supported by Aaron Gordon, who finished with a game-high 27 points in one of the best performances of his career.

Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo combined for 45 points for the Heat, who were ultimately let down by another poor 3-pointer.

Miami shot just 32 percent from deep while the Nuggets used up half of their 3-point attempts.

The Heat kept up with the Nuggets early, holding just a four-point deficit at the half.

But Denver exploded for 31 points in the third quarter, claiming a lead that, despite a late-quarter rally, Miami ultimately couldn’t overcome.
