The Denver team fell 103-111 to the Cleveland Cavaliers

MADRID, 12 Jan. (EUROPA PRESS) –

Madrid power forward Juancho Hernangómez scored only two points during the game that his team, the Denver Nuggets, ended up losing last night 103-111 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, on a regular NBA day without more Spanish representation.

Collin Sexton, with 25 points, was the top scorer of the visitors and also of the match, played at the Pepsi Center in Denver. Despite taking the lead on the scoreboard, enjoying up to 17 points ahead in the third period (48-65) and at the start of the fourth (71-88), the Cavaliers suffered a rival comeback attempt.

However, the Nuggets mishandled that situation from 96-95 and ended with defeat, despite the 24 goals Jamal Murray scored. This bad result left the Denver franchise in the third position of the Western Conference, thanks to its balance of 26-12. On the other hand, the whole of Cleveland goes thirteenth of the East (12-27).
