Denver nuggets continues with an irregular gait in the NBA and, despite another good performance by the Cordovan base Facundo Campazzo, the Colorado franchise was defeated 130 to 128 in her visit to the Washington Wizards.
After having used the Argentine as a starter against Boston Celtics, the recoveries of the substitute point guard Mount morris and the starting escort Gary Harris they arranged things for the coach Michael Malone and used the former player of Real Madrid as first change. Thus, with that role of sixth man, the Cordoba again had an outstanding performance with a sheet that reflected 14 points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 25 minutes.
That mark in points allowed him to be the team’s third scorer along with starter Michael Porter Jr. and behind point guard Jamal Murray (35) and center Nikola Jokic (33). In addition to the scorer, Murray was the figure of those from Colorado with a triple almost from the logo in the middle of the court that equalized the game with eight seconds remaining. However, two defensive errors by Malone’s team that resulted in fouls by the power forward JaMychal Green They left the victory served to the Wizards guard Bradley Beal with two free throws when the clock ticked 0.1 seconds for the closing of the meeting.
That late draw, however, could not have been achieved had it not been for Campazzo’s great contribution, especially in the third quarter. When the result reflected a bulky difference for Washington of more than ten points, the Argentine base entered the game and with two fast doubles and a long-distance bomb he narrowed the difference to put Denver back in the game. To top it off, on the last play of the match that ended in Beal’s free practice, center Robin Lopez dropped Campazzo in what appeared to be an illegal curtainBut the umpires did not charge anything despite complaints from Malone and the rest of Denver’s bench.
It was not the only controversial decision on the part of the referees, since in the last quarter they decided to validate a decisive triple of Davis bertans -the figure of the Wizards with 35 points and a personal record of nine triples scored, one off the franchise record– despite the fact that the assistance he received from Russell westbrook it was with the point guard stepping on the baseline, so that ball should have come from Denver. Denver’s complaints – with an effusive Campazzo – were in vain after the judge Dannica mosher decide to validate the action.
Thus, the match ended 130. to 128 and it meant the 13th defeat for Denver, which thus ranks eighth in the ranking in the Western Conference. The next team meeting will be tomorrow, from 9pm, against the Cleveland Cavaliers (14th in the East), a match that was scheduled to advance part of the second half of the calendar before the suspension of the match against Charlotte hornets.
