NBA - US Sports: Morris believes Dubs are 'beatable'

Denver guard Monte Morris is convinced his team can fight back and overcome Golden State Warriors after securing their first victory of the series with a 126-121 Game 4 win on Sunday.

The Nuggets are 33/2 to win the series, while Golden State are 11/2 to win the series 4-2.

The Dubs won the first two games of the series comfortably at the Chase Center in San Francisco, but needed a fourth-quarter comeback to take a 3-0 series lead.

Nuggets avoid series sweep

Denver managed to avoid a series sweep on Sunday as they finally got off the mark in front of their own fans.

Nikola Jokic led the game in scoring with 37 points, eight rebounds and five assists, while Morris has 24 points n 7-for-11 shooting - including five three-pointers from seven attempts.

The Nuggets still face the daunting prospect of having to win three games, two away from home, if they are to avoid a first round exit, but Morris insists his side's displays in Games 3 & 4 suggest they can still claim an unlikely series win.

"There is no pressure on us," said Monte Morris, via abc News. "I think Game 3 and 4 has been our best basketball, how physical we want to be, we displayed that.

"Going back there (to the Chase Center for Game 5), we see they're beatable. They're a helluva team."

Morris backs Denver "brand" of play

"But when we play our style of basketball and make it tough and make them see bodies - they are going to make tough shots - but we know if we play our brand of basketball and bring the energy, we give ourselves a chance.

"And that is why I think it is going to be different going back."

The two sides meet again for Game 5 on Wednesday in San Francisco.
