With a great game from Facundo Campazzo, the Denver Nuggets won 120-115 against the Portland Trail Blazers and

dominated the

first round

series

of the NBA Western Conference

2-1

.

This Saturday, from 5:00 p.m. (Argentina time), the fourth game of the series will be played.

The Cordovan is

increasingly able to establish himself more

in the starting five and does everything possible so that the team does not feel the absence due to injury of Jamal Murray.

Tonight, the former Peñarol de Mar del Plata and Real Madrid completed his roster with

11 points

(3-4 in free practice, 1-3 in doubles and 2-6 in triples),

8 rebounds

(one offensive),

8 assists and 2 robberies

in 32 minutes on the court.

The point guard of the Argentine National Team started active on the offensive side and contributed five points in the first three minutes of the game (a triple and a double).

However, those led by Michael Malone could not contain CJ McCollum and

Damian Lillard

, who were key to achieving a 16-9 lead before the first five minutes.

Although he was not assigned a personal best with Lillard, the Argentine

crossed several times

with the Portland star, who was the main responsible for keeping his team alive in various stages of the engagement.

Hand in hand with

his great figure

, Nikola Jokic (36 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists), Denver managed to equalize the score 26-26 and even finished the first chapter 39-30 up.

Campazzo, who had started with one minute remaining, returned six minutes into the second quarter and did it in the best way:

two consecutive assists

to stretch the lead to ten points.

By halftime, the Nuggets held ahead 64-59

In the third quarter, both teams converted 20 points and left open the last quarter, which was full of spices and was the one

in which Facundo shone the most

.

With two triples and two free in a row by Carmelo Anthony, Portland managed to equalize the score 91-91 with seven minutes remaining, and that was when the Cordoba entered from the bench.

As soon as he stepped onto the floor, he pulled off a

key steal

as he tirelessly chased Norman Powell, who headed straight for the basket to put his team ahead for the first time since the first quarter.

Seconds later, he took advantage of his wide repertoire of resources to assist his teammates (which earned him the first place in the ranking of the best assists of the NBA regular season) and

improvised a

no-look pass

(pass without looking) to Aaron Gordon, who scored two.

In the final minutes,

Austin Rivers

managed to calm the team by hitting four triples, which were essential to achieve the victory and thus reverse the series, which is now 2-1 in favor of the Nuggets.
