The Wizards recorded their 30th win this season with a thrilling victory in Denver. The number is more than just that when talking franchise history.
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).
