The 2023 NBA Finals are tied after the opening two events in Denver. The series now moves to Miami, the home of the Heat. 

Before Betting on the Nuggets vs. Heat Game 3 NBA Finals

The Denver Nuggets lost at home for the first time in this playoff, and they did it at the worst possible time. Mike Malone’s gang no longer has the home-court edge, and what is even more important – the momentum. 

Nikola Jokic is constant, and after a triple-double in the opening game, the Serbian center scored 41 points in the second contest. As usual, he isn’t the problem for this unit, but the remaining part of the unit. Jamal Murray had 18 points and missed the game-tying three, while Michael Porter Junior scored only six buckets. 

On the other side, three players delivered 20 or more points for the Heat. Jimmy Butler scored 21 with nine assists and was way better than in the opener. Bam Adebayo continued his solid stretch having the same number of points as Butler but with nine boards. 

Gabe Vincent was the man, with 23 points and four threes. By the way, the Heat was very good from downtown, hitting 17 of 35 attempts behind the arc. It immediately reflected on the scoreboard.

Miami was back from -15 in Game 2, and their morale is at the highest possible peak right now. They are also back in Florida after three straight events on the road, which will energize this unit even more. That’s why we believe that Erik Spoelstra’s guys have more chances to win Game 3.
