Aaron Gordon really needs to figure it out for the Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are officially on the brink of elimination after suffering yet another defeat to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night. They now sit in a 3-0 hole and at this point, it seems unlikely a heroic comeback could actually happen based on just how dominant this Suns team has been.

Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Struggles on offense in Game 3

Gordon finished Friday's Game 3 loss to Phoenix with just four points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in 36 minutes. To be fair to Gordon, a lot of his defensive contributions don't show up in the box score, but the forward has been a disappointment on the offensive end since coming over from Orlando. In the postseason (10 games), Gordon is averaging just 10.5 points on 43.2 percent shooting while struggling to find his role in the Nikola Jokic-led offense. In Games 2 and 3 against Phoenix, Gordon has totaled only 10 points and five rebounds to go with five turnovers in 56 minutes.

"Scared, that's another way to play it. You could choose between them two words, either soft or scared, that's what it felt like we were playing like. And then we was just breaking down. We were breaking down defensively, offensively, we weren't getting into what we needed to get into. We were letting them dictate our offense a little too much. Really just a lot of breakdowns."
