Part of what makes the Denver Nuggets so dangerous is that they can beat opponents in a variety of ways. In Game 3 on Wednesday, they subdued the Miami Heat with The Nikola Jokic & Jamal Murray Show. In Friday's Game 4, it was the supporting cast taking the starring roles as Denver once again posted a double-digit win, 108-95, in Miami.

Friday night was Aaron Gordon's turn to be the top star as he scored a game-high 27 points on 11-of-15 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and six assists. Jamal Murray didn't shoot well but he had another 12 assists, making him the league's only player to have four double-digit assists outings in his first four NBA Finals games. Oh, and he tied Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson by racking up those 12 assists without turning the ball over.

The Heat now find themselves down 3-1 and heading to Denver for a potential closeout game Monday night. Win that and Miami would host Game 6 on Thursday with a chance to even the Finals before a potential Game 7 showdown Father's Day. Technically possible, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Teams down 3-1 in the NBA Finals have gone on the lose the series 35 of 36 times. (And the 2016 version of LeBron James ain't walking through that door.)
