Reacting to the game and his three-point shooting percentage, Nnaji who was a first-round 22 overall pick by the Nuggets in the 2020 draft said, “I’m extremely confident in my shooting.

“I feel like I’ve always been confident and I think that confidence comes from knowing the work that I put in every day in the gym. I work a lot on my shot…and I’m really happy my hard work is starting to pay off.”Gabe Vincent,Milwaukee Bucks,
