The Wizards are 1-1 on this road trip and have a chance to finish with a winning record if they can put away the Lakers on Tuesday.
The Wizards won the second game of this back-to-back vs. the Nuggets after Kenneth Faried missed foul shots to win in regulation and Paul Pierce's inbounds gaffe.
John Wall bounced a nifty pass between his legs to a waiting Marcin Gortat, who finished the play with an easy bucket. The Nuggets never knew what hit them.
The Wizards are 14-9 when the score is within five points in the last five minutes of games entering tonight's matchup vs. Denver (CSN, CSNwashington.com and NBC Sports Live Extra, 7:30 p.m. ET).
John Wall likes the idea of playing with Ray Allen, but he has stuck with is principles in not going out of his way to recruit anyone to come to Washington.
