Miami Heat defeated 108-111 a Denver Nuggets in it Game 2 of the NBA Finals Series, held this Sunday at the Pepsi Center, and equalized the challenge for the title 1-1 and recovered the home court factor for the next two games in their pavilion.

After the first confrontation with a Nikola Jokic unleashed, Erik Spoelstra put forward an entirely different defenseallowing the Serb to score (41 points), but leaving him only with 4 assists -added 11 rebounds to complete a 'double-double'-, limiting the Nuggets' attack. That collective effort and the success from the triple were the keys to Miami's victory in Denver.

After a somewhat irregular start in the first game, the Heat's exit to the field was another. Max Strus, who finished with a miserable 0/9 from the perimeter in the Finals opener, got even in the second game with four triples in the first quarter to give wings to his team, which finished him ahead (23-26).

In the second quarter the local reaction arrived, with the defense of the Heat forcing Jokic to look for his most leading version, which did not intimidate the Serb. His team took advantage of it and he was 15 points ahead (50-35), but he appeared gabe vincent (23 points) to throw Miami behind him before the break, which was reached with the score even (57-51).

From there, Jokic was very lonely, neither Michael Porter (5 points), nor Jamal Murray (18) helped the Serbian, who still kept his team ahead with an advantage, reaching 83-77 at the end of the third quarter.

In the final 12 minutes, Miami grew up and believed in their optionswith a convincing partial (12-32) in the first eight minutes, thanks to Duncan Robinson (10 points), Bam Adebayo (21 points and 9 rebounds) and Jimmy Butler (21), far from having his best day, although key in defense. Murray missed the three-pointer to tie it at the buzzer and the match ended 108-111.

The third game in Miami will be held this Wednesday, with everything even and with the home court factor for the Heatwhich also recover tyler herro after a month and a half injured.
