The Wizards won the second game of this back-to-back vs. the Denver Nuggets after Paul Pierce's inbounds play almost led to the game-tying basket.


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.


The Wizards were off to a strong start early and led by double digits but lost for the second time in a row by poor execution in the fourth quarter.
