Nuggets tie series with Timberwolves in 115-107 win in Game 4

MINNEAPOLIS – Nikola Jokic showcased his clutch performance with 16 fourth-quarter points, leading the Denver Nuggets to a crucial 115-107 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals. Aaron Gordon’s stellar 27-point display on 11-for-12 shooting added to Denver’s firepower, while Jamal Murray’s 12 third-quarter points continued his momentum from a buzzer-beating shot in the previous game.


Despite Anthony Edwards’ remarkable 44-point effort for the Timberwolves, shooting 16 for 25 from the floor, the Nuggets controlled the game. Even with a rebounding edge, Minnesota couldn’t match Denver’s determination, especially after the Nuggets’ wakeup call in Game 2.


The series now heads back to Denver tied at 2-2, with both teams eager to gain an advantage. Mike Conley contributed 15 points for the Wolves, but Karl-Anthony Towns struggled, shooting just 5 for 18 from the field.


Gordon’s stellar defensive efforts, coupled with his offensive contributions, earned praise from coach Mike Malone, emphasizing his selflessness for the team’s success. The Nuggets capitalized on their depth and secondary scorers, with players like Justin Holiday, Christian Braun, and Reggie Jackson stepping up from beyond the arc.


With the series finely poised, both teams are gearing up for a crucial Game 5 showdown in Denver.
