Campazzo played one of his best games of the season and Denver achieved an agonizing triumph

Denver Nuggets agonizingly beat the Houston Rockets on a new NBA day. As a local, Facundo Campazzo’s team won against one of the weakest teams in the league by a 95-94 effort that was defined in the last minutes.

The Cordovan contributed 8 points (equaled his best mark of the season), with two triples, and also accumulated 2 assists with his stamp that aroused the admiration of the public, along with 2 rebounds and 1 steal in 18 minutes on the court.

The Nuggets, who have already been playing without their starting point guard, Jamal Murray, Since he suffered a ligament injury last season that has him with chances of missing the entire current campaign, they lost after only 7 minutes of the game another of their key men, the forward Michael Porter Jr.

Everything seemed to get complicated against a team that marches at the bottom of the Western conference positions (1 win in 8 games) and I shouldn’t have had so many shocks for a team like the one from Colorado that intends to get among the contenders for the title.

Campazzo’s contribution was significant beyond the statistics: he infected his usual energy from the defensive sacrifice and, in attack, he left a couple of pearls when it came to finding his teammates and was encouraged to triple, without being intimidated by the skinny percentage that came to this game.

Therefore, despite having scored only 3 of his 14 attempts in the current tournament, he shot up to five times and scored two of them, one with a strong mark on top that was key to get three points of light on the end of the penultimate quarter.

Nikola Jokic, as usual, was figure of the Nuggets: He scored 28 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and put the cap on the victory when the Rockets tried the winning basket on the buzzer.
