Facundo Campazzo lost ground at the start of this season of the NBA: the Argentine was relegated to the second unit and his minutes decreased as the first ten games passed. Michael Malone He was not satisfied with the performance of former Real Madrid, to the point of leaving him without minutes in some games. However, the injuries of his teammates in Nuggets They have given him a new opportunity and he is taking advantage of it: in the defeat against Bucks stood out with 16 points. After finishing the match, El Comercio spoke with the Cordova native about his progress in the NBA.

For his part, Michael Porter Jr. was also not active. PJ Dozier and Bones Hyland were also unavailable due to injury.

Aaron Gordon was the best of the Nuggets with 19 points and nine rebounds. Will Barton contributed 17 units and the Argentine Facundo Campazzo he converted 16 points, a rebound and two assists.

At the post-match conference, I asked Facundo Campazzo for his offensive performance and what he should improve in the NBA: “It’s not that I don’t worry about scoring, I think it was misunderstood, I try to be aggressive on offense and make the best possible play, always thinking about helping the team. In this league you have to be aggressive in defense and above all in attack, that’s the reality ”.

Then he continued:I try to put my energy into infecting from the defense, in concentrating on reading the rivals better: their pros and cons. According to that and following the plan of the assistants, I try to defend my best. My game is like this: I gain confidence from defense, not from attack. I try to help my teammates, shoot the shots that leave me and try to score as much as possible, my task is to help the team to win”.

Nuggets will face the Miami Heat on November 29, while Milwaukee Bucks He will do the same against the Indiana Pacers on November 27.
