If the Denver Nuggets are going to become the first NBA team to ever come back from a 3-0 deficit, it will start with Sunday's Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors. After being run off the court in the first two games of the series in San Francisco, the Nuggets played much better in Game 3 but just couldn't find enough offense down the stretch.
Golden State's trio of Splash Brothers -- Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole -- combined for 80 points in Thursday's Game 3 win. Denver will have to contain them much better on Sunday if they're going to avoid getting swept. Nikola Jokic is coming off of a monster 37-point, 18-rebound, five-assist performance, and will need to be just as good in Game 4.
