The Denver Nuggets have long tried to use altitude to their advantage, and this season they finally have the type of team to take full advantage of the thin air.
Bradley Beal scored 23 points, John Wall blocked Ty Lawson's attempt for a tying layup in the final seconds, and the Washington Wizards hung on to beat the Denver Nuggets 112-108 on Friday night to snap an eight-game road losing streak.
The Los Angeles Clippers didn't finish their 14th consecutive victory well. They were good enough through the first three quarters that it didn't matter.
It's not quite the NBA All-Star Game, but it is an East vs. West matchup that comes with almost as much fanfare.
Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points, Nene and Al Harrington each scored 21 and the Denver Nuggets beat the Washington Wizards 120-109 on Tuesday night.
