A Laser-Sharp Focus and Surgical Execution

Gordon expressed the Nuggets’ determination, saying, “It’s just like a laser-sharp focus and a surgical execution.” His 27 points on 11-of-12 shooting, and Jokic’s 35 points, including 16 in the fourth quarter, propelled Denver to the crucial win.

Jamal Murray continued his resurgence from Game 3, scoring 19 points, including 12 in the third quarter. His contributions helped the Nuggets maintain a momentum carryover from his buzzer-beating shot from behind half court in the previous game.
