The Denver Nuggets take the lead against the Miami Heat (includes video story)

The Denver Nuggets and the Miami Heat entered the Kaseya Center Wednesday night tied at 1-1 in the NBA Finals. But the Nuggets beat the Heat 109-94 and are now two wins away from an NBA championship.

The Nuggets won on the back of another triple-double by star Nikola Jokic. The Serb scored 32 points, grabbed 21 rebounds, and dished out 10 assists. Jimmy Butler scored 28 points for the Heat, but wasn’t celebrating.

“We didn’t play our best tonight,” said Butler. “I feel like we just have to come out with more energy and effort, and that’s correctible. That’s on us as a group. No X’s and O’s can fix that. So come out, dive on the floor, get loose balls, get defensive rebounds and maybe, just maybe, it would have been a different game.”

Game 4 is Friday, June 9 at the Kaseya Center at 8:30 p.m.
