In a duel that did not have many shocks beyond the rival in front, Facundo Campazzo’s Denver Nuggets beat Golden State Warrriors 114-104 at the Pepsi Center and returned to show their best side in the NBA. The Argentine guard had a discreet performance and contributed his always creative game and a handful of points to sustain the victory.
In the Colorado team, who won five of their last seven presentations and remained with the record of 6-6 (the same as those of San Francisco), the figure of the game was Nikola Jokic, who added a new triple-double to his personal account to end the duel with 23 points, 14 rebounds and ten assists, plus three steals.
However, in the Nuggets there were several players who scored in double digits, with the 17 so many Will Barton and Jamal Murray, plus the 15 and nine rebounds by JaMychal Green in the second unit. For its part, the ex-Real Madrid from Mar del Plata played 12 minutes on the court and converted a triple, which came at an important moment such as the closing of the third period, of the three he threw, to conclude with three points and an assist. Likewise, he collaborated a lot in defense and generated two offensive fouls.
On the side of the Warriors, who did not have Juan Toscano-Anderson, the most outstanding was Stephen Curry, author of 35 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and a 5-11 in triples. Also, the young James Wiseman highlighted, who brought out his entire class and ended the night with 18 goals and an 8-13 from the court.
The next meeting of Denver will be on Sunday, from 10 p.m., against Utah Jazz, while Golden State will face the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, starting at 00:00.
