Campazzo started Denver’s big win – Basketball

Cordovan point guard Facundo Campazzo started the great victory that the Denver Nuggets won as a visitor over the best team of the season, Golden State Warriors, by 89-86.

The victory of the Nuggets allowed them to reach positive statistics of 17 successes compared to 16 setbacks, but the credit was given especially because the Warriors, whom they will receive this Thursday from 23.30 (from Argentina) at the Ball Arena, in Denver, are the season’s overall leaders, now with a 27-7 record.

The game was promoted from two non-positional individual duels, which were those of the Serbian pivot from Denver, Nikola Jokic, against the greatest tripler in NBA history such as the Golden State point guard, Stephen Curry, and that of Campazzo against Mexican forward Juan Toscano Anderson.

The first of these confrontations was reached by being both exclusive figures of their teams, while the second was promoted as “the Latin duel” of this match between two teams with very different realities.

And one of the keys to the victory of the Nuggets was precisely the fact that both Jokic and Campazzo ended up prevailing in those virtual “heads up”, although with nothing left over, as happened with the final result, over Curry and Toscano Anderson, They barely surpassed them in converted points, but were widely surpassed in other fundamental areas of the game.

Curry scored 23 points (he was the top scorer of the game) against Jokic’s 22, but he dropped 18 rebounds and the Warriors point guard just 4, delivering the same number of assists, one less than the Serbian.

While Toscano Anderson scored 10 goals and Campazzo, who stayed on the court for almost 32 minutes (31 with 56 seconds) and was at the start of the game and also in the quintet that closed it, scored half (5), but took 4 rebounds (one offensive), delivered 7 assists, recorded 2 steals and placed a cap (also had a loss and committed three personal fouls).

On the other hand, the Mexican, who spent 22 minutes and 38 seconds on the rectangle of the Chase Center, San Francisco, reached 3 defensive rebounds, gave only 2 assists and managed a steal.

And it was in those “details” that a game was defined that the Nuggets easily won at the end of the second quarter, by 60 to 36, but lost the last two by 11 and 10 points, respectively, and that is why they concluded with a score so tight in his favor, resisting in the end against the pressure exerted by a team that ended up showing, despite the defeat, why it is the best in this regular phase.
