Ahead of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Jeff Green invited his Nuggets teammates to his house for a dinner. Denver defeated the Heat in Game 3 and regained control of the series.

After the win, Nikola Jokic, who had a triple-double of 32 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists in Game 3, was asked if the visit to Green’s house contributed to team building.

“He has a nice house,” Jokic said. “Jeff is 27-year-old [36-year-old] veteran. He’s a guy who is so professional. I think all the young guys that come into the league or just if they have an opportunity to talk to him or to see his work ethic and see how he’s approaching the game, the practice, the workout, the weightlifting.

“He’s really professional and that’s why he’s so long in the league. Having us in his house it’s a really nice thing of him. Hopefully one time we can come to celebrate a little bit better.”
