DENVER – Pure joy and satisfaction for the Denver Nuggets one win away.

Beating Phoenix and advancing to the Western Conference Finals and beating the Los Angeles Lakers and reaching the NBA Finals were just part of a larger quest to win an NBA Championship.

“I speak to the 17 players in that locker room and to the entire organization, we’re not satisfied,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said after sweeping the Denver Lakers three weeks ago.

The only thing that will make this season redeemable and successful is beating the Miami Heat one more time. After Friday’s 108-95 victory, the Nuggets are 3-1 in the playoffs and can clinch the franchise’s first NBA championship in Game 5 on Monday.
