Facundo Campazzo made a great first impression, as he played his first NBA game with the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets fell short in a preseason contest with the Golden State Warriors, but the Argentinian playmaker had a memorable debut.
As a result, the Nuggets’ superstars Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray were pretty impressed with their new teammate. Campazzo finished the contest with eight points and three assists, helping the Nuggets come back from a 20-point deficit in the second half.
Murray took to Twitter to call the Argentinian basketball savant ‘Spiderman’, while Nikola Jokic talked about his experience on winning, as he was around winning teams in Europe.

“I’m just sad that there’s no fans,” Jokic said. “He would probably be their favorite player. He makes winning plays. … He’s been around winning teams as a starter, as a bench player, as the best player. He’s been around, and he knows what you need to do.”
