Houston Rockets He had only won one of his seven games, so the duel was favorable for Denver nuggets. But the Texans gave a great fight to the Colorado, who at the end got a tight 95-94. Facundo Campazzo he fulfilled in a good way and equaled the maximum of the season.
As had happened in the previous eight games (now he is 5-4), those led by Michael Malone relied heavily on Nikola Jokic. When the Serbian is fine, the chances of winning are higher. And this afternoon he was very fired up: the pivot finished with 28 points (9 of 15 from the court), 14 rebounds and 2 assists.
Although he was not the only one who gave the present. Campazzo, who dragged games of little offensive prominence, finished with 8 goals and thus matched what he had done against San Antonio Spurs, just another victory (102-96). He is also still far from his historical maximum: last season he added 19 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Nikola Jokic was once again decisive for Denver’s triumph.
Facu appeared in difficult moments. Like when he took an offensive foul on Kevin Porter Jr. and then finished off a Jokic enable at 67-65 with a layup. Or when he sharpened his aim of three in the following minutes to finally go 2 of 5 of triples and a 3 of 6 total.
The roster was completed with a steal, two rebounds and two assists of which he usually gives in 18 minutes. A girdle for Will Barton in the second turn caused the amazement of the entire Ball Arena. The aforementioned Barton was the winner’s second leading scorer with 15. The Nuggets wore the City Edition jersey and won their fifth win.
What do you think of the look of the Cordovan?
The Houston Rockets still cannot find a return to the NBA season and its main scorer was German pivot Daniel Theis, who scored 18 goals. This Sunday they will collide as a visitor against Golden State Warriors (7-1).
The next test of the Campazzo Nuggets will be on Monday when they host Miami Heat (6-2), who this Saturday will play against the Utah Jazz.
