Jamal Murray led Denver in scoring with 26 points, Aaron Gordon had 16 points, and Michael Porter Jr. contributed 14 points and 12 rebounds. Denver had plenty of room to drive to the hoop and shoot long-range, and it converted on 51.3% of its attempts.

In its three previous playoff series, Miami had won Game 1 on the road, but it was unable to do so against Denver, who advanced to 9-0 at home in the postseason. The Miami Heat can definitely give the Nuggets a run for their money and bring home the win for Game 2. But they will need to stop the Nuggets from scoring, not just near the ring, but even for long-range shooting.
