Nikola Jokic keys Game 4 win


It wasn’t a four-overtime game, but the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers could still probably use a breather after that one.

Behind 34 points from Jamal Murray and a triple-double from Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets notched a 116-112 Game 4 win to even the series at 2-2. It might not have been a total victory for Denver though, as Jokic, who has been the team’s MVP this series, was seen limping during the game’s final minutes.

In front of a hostile crowd, the Nuggets erased a six-point halftime deficit with an 11-1 run in the third quarter, then held onto dear life in a contentious fourth quarter.

The series now heads back to Denver, and one of the most fun series of this year’s playoffs comes closer to a conclusion.
