Facundo Campazzo saw action again on Sunday night of the NBA, in which the Denver Nuggets achieved their

fifth consecutive victory

with a

119-109 effort

over the Orlando Magic.

And, despite spending a large part of the game on the bench by coach Mike Malone's decision, the Cordovan managed to leave his mark.

The Argentine guard had less participation than in his last presentations and only stepped on the playing field for 9 minutes, in which he contributed

3 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist

.

All his goals came from a play in which he penetrated decisively towards the basket, scored and earned a foul in his favor to complete the action of three points from the line.

That happened when the game was 85-87 in favor of the Magic.

His points were the start of Denver's comeback, which managed to get to the front for the first time since the opening minutes of the duel.
