Jeff Green's dinner party fuels Nuggets to bounce-back victory

After a team-bonding dinner at 'Uncle' Jeff Green's South Beach residence, Denver responded with a dominant win in Game 3.

MIAMI — The Denver Nuggets are tasting victory.

"Do I want to take credit for that? No," veteran forward Jeff Green said.

After their Game 2 loss, the Nuggets looked to be in real trouble heading away from home.

Luckily, the team has an uncle in Miami. 'Uncle' Jeff Green hosted the Nuggets for dinner at his South Beach residence. And apparently has a nice house -- according to center Nikola Jokic.

So is it the best dinner party in Denver sports history? 

"I believe it," guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said. "Great team bonding. Some wine, great food, just enjoying ourselves." 

Denver is two wins away from its first NBA championship in franchise history.

So if the Nuggets win it all, will there be a follow-up dinner party back at Green's house?

"At my house? Nah. Not there," Green said with a laugh. "My house would be destroyed."
