NBA The Argentine finishes his third game with three points and a steal
Lthe Denver Nuggets returned to give a good account of Portland Trail Blazers in the game that served both franchises to close their particular preparation before starting the regular season on December 22. Those from Colorado close their preseason with a balance of 2-1 thanks to his overwhelming triumph129-96) against the Oregon team that has added three defeats in four games.
Paul Millsap was the most prominent player on Mike Malone’s team. The veteran power forward made the most of the 15 minutes he was on the floor and finished with 24 points (nine of 13 from the field goal and two of five from the triple), five rebounds and one assist.
Millsap was well accompanied by Michael Porter, who had 20 points coming off the bench, and by Bol Bol, who had 16 points and eight rebounds more on the account of a few Nuggets who clinched their second preseason victory since the first quarter, which they closed with a 41-23 run.
A score that increased as soon as the second quarter began thanks to a triple from Facundo Campazzo. The Argentine played his third game with the Nuggets and although he could not shine as in the previous two, he did leave a flash of his quality with his shot of three. The ex of the Real Madrid saw weighed down by fouls (five in 12 minutes) and could barely add three points and a steal ball on your stat sheet.
On the part of the Blazers, who do not finish leaving good feelings before starting the regular league, they shone CJ McCollum with 26 points (eight of 20 in field goals with four triples) and Gary Trent, who had 18 points coming off the bench. However, the Oregon team missed the contribution of Lillard, who did not play, or greater prominence from Covington (8 goals), Nurkic (4) or Carmelo Anthony (3).
