NBA: Campazzo’s anger in Denver’s victory against Sacramento
In the victory of the Nuggets by 121 to 111 against the Kings, the Argentine point guard starred in a strong cross with the referee.
Argentine fight in the NBA. This Friday, the Denver Nuggets managed to prevail 121-111 against the local Sacramento Kings, Facundo Campazzo was a substitute, he made a great performance, but he was also the protagonist of a new interdict with a referee after having points taken away by a referee decision.
The crossing of words between the Argentine base and the judge gave rise in the second quarter of the match when the Cordovan threw the orange towards the basket before the imposing presence of Tristian Thompson, who made an illegal cover to get the ball out of the hoop. This type of maneuver carried out by the Canadian is outside the regulations, it is known as Goaltending and, usually, it entails a reduction of points for whoever does it, since it interfered with the trajectory of the ball when it was already descending to the goal.
However, on this occasion, the arbitration team decided to charge inversely and took two units from ex-Real Madrid. As expected, after the controversial decision, Campazzo approached those who impart justice in the match and anger broke out, which caused him to receive a technical foul.
Beyond Facu’s interdict, the native of Córdoba sealed a great day on the court: he played 25 minutes, scored 6 points, provided 7 assists and had 3 rebounds. With this result, the Nuggets register 19 victories and 18 defeats, which places them in seventh position in the NBA Western Conference and they seek to qualify for the playoffs. This Saturday, starting at 21, they will face the Oklahoma City Thunder.
