The season by Facundo Campazzo has progressed radically. He has become into a key piece for the Denver Nuggets and is having outstanding individual performances. Let’s analyze the step forward from the Argentinian in the league.
The numbers from Campazzo:
The Argentinian is averaging 6.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. These are not the astonishing stats that we are used to see in the NBA. The player has changed radically compared to the first 14 games of the season, as he was barely able to reach doble digits, but now he is an important part of the team.
The playing style from Facu goes beyond stats. The ex-player for Real Madrid now dares to make penetrations. He is not afraid of the paint. This allows the point guard to have more chances per game not only to score, but also to create opportunities for his teammates.
The strength from Campazzo is his defense. Specifically, he has improved on blocking. Despite his height, the point guard has already surpassed the number of 14 blocks from last season. Facu has the margin of games to be the player with less than 1.80 to have the highest number of blocks in a season. The record is in possession of Spud Webb with 24 blocks. Will he be able to break it?
His best night in the NBA:
Facundo Campazzo showed his best version in the NBA at the first game of 2022. The Denver Nuggets beat the Houston Rockets (124-111) and the Argentinian recorded a double-double. He scored 22 points, gave 12 assists, stole 5 balls, picked up 4 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 34 minutes.
The season of the Denver Nuggets:
It is true that the season by the Denver Nuggets is being too irregular. They are 5th in the Western Conference with 18 wins and 17 losses. The team from Colorado is expected to make it to the Playoffs without struggling, but they should not get too confident. Current MVP Nikola Jokic keeps being their main player, as he averages 25.7 points, 14 rebounds and 6.9 assists, which are superstar’s stats.
