Details and Personal Analysis
I can say that games with a lot of advantage, especially when they are developed from the beginning, are not the kind of encounters I like, but this is unpredictable, when we prepare to observe and analyze a game we never know what will happen, of course we have an idea but necessarily not fully complied with.
In this encounter there was a total dominion of the Denver Nuggets over the Knicks, who have a defensive defensive system deficient and this is taking its toll on them, specifically evidenced in the ease with which the Nuggets attacked the basket, in addition to the fact that the Denver team is accustomed to being aggressive in offense, the Knicks showed no resistance and did not react either, the result was overwhelming by 37 digits in a victory with authority of Denver over New York that even before finishing the 3rd quarter could be decreed the triumph of Nuggets by the low level of intensity shown by the Knicks.
Will Barton 17 Pts. 2 Reb. 2 Ast.
