Jamal Murray lead the Nuggets with 34 points, which included sealing the game with clutch free throws at the end. Nikola Jokic notched another triple-double two days after playing a game high 65 minutes. Jokic finished with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in 39 minutes. Paul Millsap stepped up also as he finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Gary Harris chipped in 14 points and Will Barton scored 11 off the bench. With the win, Denver takes back home court advantage with Game 5 on Tuesday night.
Portland could’ve taken command of the series with a win. If Portland would’ve won, they would’ve taken a commanding 3-1 lead. Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum combined to score 57 points. Seth Curry provided offense in the second quarter and finished with 16 points. The Blazers will need some sort of offense from Kanter and Hartless. The two combined to score nine points. Al-Farouq Amin had 19 points and 8 rebounds. Portland will hope to duplicate the Game 2 success when they beat Denver at home.
