The Miami Heat did what they wanted, which was to win in Denver and steal the home-court advantage in the NBA Finals. They’ve inflicted the first postseason loss to the franchise from Colorado, who will have to respond now, otherwise, the Nuggets might be out of the title race. Miami will have more time to regenerate itself before the clash at home, and we can only expect to see them even more fired up.

Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets Game 3 Preview

Miami Heat

The mental stability of this team is fantastic, and the Heat is probably the strongest unit in the league regarding the psychological aspect of competing. They were down 15 points in the second period, trailing up until the last 12 minutes, after which we saw Erik Spoelstra’s unit flipping the result. 

Three players had 20+ points for the Heat in the 111-108 victory. Gabe Vincent scored 23, hitting four threes, while Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler both added 21 each. Butler had nine assists, and Adebayo had nine boards. 

The big deal for the Heat was the three-pointers, whom they scored 17 in 35 attempts, which is a very good percentage. We also want to stress that the team from Miami triumphed, having only 31 rebounds.

Denver Nuggets

We are all talking about the Nuggets’ depth and solid composition of the team, but the bottom is that this squad is nothing without Nikola Jokic. And it really is like that. The Serbian had a marvelous night, dropping 41 points with 11 boards, yet he had no support. 

Jamal Murray’s oscillations came back at the worst possible moment, with the sharpshooting guard having 18 points and ten assists. Aaron Gordon was the next best thing on the Nuggets’ team, with 12 buckets and Bruce Brown had 11. 

The Nuggets lost the game at home for the first time in the playoffs. With it, they lost the home-court edge, and that’s something nothing in Colorado hoped to experience. We will see what this team is made of because this loss undoubtedly came at the worst possible moment.

Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets Game 3 Predictions

Miami’s playoff games at home were usually very tough and defensive-oriented. That’s why we find the over/under line set at 215.5 points pretty high, particularly because the Nuggets are in a troublesome situation. 

Our pick: Under 215.5 points
