Facundo Campazzo: “There are certain freedoms in playing here, you can take a risk, if you leave the plan a bit and it goes well, they don’t tell you anything. But if it doesn’t… well, they let you know. They always advise that you follow everything perfectly. Because everything is well-studied. Now I have the book on Phoenix in hand and I have to study Chris Paul. They give you all the tactical tools and then you have to put your intensity and energy into it. With those elements, when we do it well together, it allows us to carry out a series like the one we won with Portland.”
