Certain. Pre-season friendly. However, lowering the price of a duel between Argentines in the main basketball league in the world sounds like a big mistake … The truth is that, this Friday, Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Denver Nuggets 114-112 in overtime. And in a rapid reductionism we could say that Leandro Bolmaro ‘won’ the duel -duel of Cordoba over- Facundo Campazzo.
The base from Córdoba capital had twice as many minutes as the Las Varillas wing (26 ‘against 13’). Campazzo contributed five points (1-4 in triples, 2-2 in free) and four assists (plus three defensive rebounds, a block, a steal and two losses) while Bolmaro added four units (1-1 in doubles, 0- 1 in triples, 2-2 in free), two defensive rebounds and one assist.
Denver doesn’t lift its head
It ended up being a great game at the Ball Arena. The game, in pure rotation on closing, had a movie ending: in overtime, Denver led by seven points and ended up losing by two in what was its third loss – in three games – of the preseason. Maybe on Wednesday, against the Oklahoma City Thunder, he will have his first time against Gabriel Deck’s franchise. Meanwhile, Bolmaro’s men have a small 2-0 record. This Monday, from 11:30 p.m., they host the Los Angeles Clippers.

The best of the night
It was Jaylen Nowell who, with a dunk three seconds from regulation time, tied at 101 and took the game to overtime. Nowell finished with 12 points. In addition, Michael Beasley scored 13 for Minnesota and Karl-Anthony Towns added 12. For his part, Nahshon Hyland scored 21 for Denver, Michael Porter J. added 16 points and Nikola Jokic had ten points, ten assists and nine rebounds.
