The Miami Heat seemed doomed in Game 2.
They were down double digits, and it didn’t seem like they had it in them to come back, as they also looked exhausted and out of sync.
Then, all of a sudden, the Heat were up three points, and they never looked back to steal a crucial win at Mile High.
That’s why Heat legend Tim Hardaway Sr. believes the team has figured the Denver Nuggets out.
Hardaway claimed that the Heat play with that fire that comes from within because of their underdog status and how little confidence has been put into them to get the job done in this series.

He acknowledged that the Nuggets are a very talented and good team and he knows that coach Mike Malone will have them ready for Game 3, but he still looked quite confident about his team’s chances to take care of business at South Beach as well.
Truth be told, there weren’t all that many reasons to believe that the Heat would be able to steal one game on the road.
They were coming off an exhausting seven-game series, while the Nuggets had swept and were well rested.
Also, watching Nikola Jokic against Cody Zeller made it seem like it was going to be a blowout, but that wasn’t the case, and they did an outstanding job of limiting him as a passer and playmaker.
The series has been more even than most insiders thought, and it seems like the championship is up for grabs now more than ever.NEXT: Bam Adebayo Is On Pace To Make Franchise History In Finals
