NBA Finals: Stephen A Smith slams Miami Heat’s starting backcourt over ‘ridiculous’ performance

Denver Nuggets could seal the NBA title on Monday.

Denver Nuggets moved within one victory of their maiden NBA crown following a 108-95 win over Miami Heat in Game Four. 

The result gives Denver a 3-1 lead in the race to four, with the Nuggets able to seal the deal on Monday.
Forward Aaron Gordon was the star of the show, producing 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists.
Popular ESPN reporter Stephen A Smith gave Gordon his credit, though he was also quick to criticise Miami Heat.

Speaking after the match, he told ESPN: "What a tremendous performance from Aaron Gordon, he came to play tonight. Bruce Brown came off the bench big time, 21 points. He came to play tonight.

"On a negative side. Max Strus, you're a starting guard. This is the second game in four games of the NBA Finals - you were scoreless, 0-4 shooting from the field. Gabe Vincent, 1-6. The starting back court for the Miami Heat had two points.
"They didn't get it done. It's over."
Smith later reemphasised his point, adding: "On a night like tonight, I think it's alright to be disgusted. We can celebrate Denver on Monday night, you can celebrate them all season.
"Let me repeat what I said. The starting back court for the Miami Heat scored two points in an NBA Final. Two.
"I don't care what anybody says, when you're looking forward to a series that will extend to six or seven games, can you give us more than two points? That's really ridiculous."
