Facu Campazzo got his first NBA start in the game of the Denver Nuggets against the Boston Celtics and he delivered with 15 points, a season-high eight assists plus two steals in the 40 minutes he spent on the floor.

It was the most productive output for Campazzo during these 24 first games of his maiden NBA campaign and he attributes that to also being able to perform in a manner similar to his career in Europe.

“I am feeling comfortable. I am feeling confident,” Campazzo said. But this is thanks to my teammates, to my coach. They’ll let me play like I know, like I used to play with my oldest (previous) teams. I want to adapt as soon as possible and keep adapting to this league. It’s not easy but I think I keep improving in every game, every practice, every day.

Nikola Jokic, for whom Campazzo said that he’s playing like an MVP, quite liked what he saw from his Argentinian teammate.

“I think he did very good. He was pushing the pace. We were kind of faster I think which is kind of good for us. He was very active on defense.

“He’s just a competitor,” Nuggets star guard Jamal Murray also mentioned on Campazzo.
