The Nuggets of an already integrated Juancho disarm Houston

Denver shows its best face, continues adding and takes off from the Rockets in the West: only the Lakers are ahead. 18 minutes to Juancho.


Good staging of the Nuggets in Pepsi Center against the Rockets. Once again little is said about them, once again they are responsible for forcing the headlines, once again they are there. The team led by Mike Malone showed his cards to one of the toughest rivals in his conference and wiped out the solid game in attack with a pressing defense to disarm Harden, Westbrook and company.

The Nuggets were simply superior. They gradually dragged the advantage until they approached the ten points in the second period, where only the expertise of a James Harden who controlled his shots very well (4/8 of two, 4/8 of three) pressed the fight again before of rest.

The locals were decisive in attack, leaving their rival's defense without effect thanks to very good combinations and very fast movements. The Rockets were taken point by pace. To the Rockets. There was the real key, playing D'Antoni to a game that they do not know how to respond. Porter and Beasley did not play, but Juancho Hernangómez did it again to show that he has room in the team: 8 points and 6 rebounds in 18 minutes as a substitute, going strong to the ring to capture rejections and with good game without the ball.

Nikola Jokic made Clint Capela dizzy by dragging him out of the area and finished with 27 + 12 + 4. Westbrook was lost despite his 25 points and the Rockets failed the secondary players this time (House, Tucker, Rivers, etc.), leading the Texas to reap their fourth loss in fifteen games, three of them out of your home
