The Denver Nuggets logged their third straight win with the latest coming against the New Orleans Pelicans with 114-112 on the scoreboard and it was once again thanks to the magnificent duo of Nikola Jokic and Facundo Campazzo.

Facundo Campazzo followed him all the way with 19 points, ten assists and six rebounds as the Argentinian seems to have adjusted fully to the NBA and is slowly showing off his magic to its fullest potential.

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz scored a total of 154 points against the Sacramento Kings who stopped at 105 points. Bojan Bogdanovic was the main push behind the effective performance of the winning side with 24 points.

Nikola Vucevic was also big last night for the Bulls with 26 points and 18 rebounds but his team lost to the New York Knicks who keep surprising this season with their consistency and have kept the fourth spot in the East with a 35-28 record.

Cedi Osman also suffered a loss despite his 19-point output while Furkan Korkmaz scored 12 for the Sixers. Alex Len stood strong in the paint with 18 points and nine rebounds for Washington’s win over the LA Lakers whose Dennis Schroder logged 13 points and eight rebounds.

Goran Dragic scored 18 as Miami got past San Antonio while Jonas Valanciunas had 19 points against Jusuf Nurkic and the Blazers. The Bosnian center scored 15.
