Photo Credit: Washington Wizards After Saturday night’s loss in Portland, the Wizards headed just a bit east to take on a Nuggets team that loves to press its home-court advantage.

Watch: Wizards Survive Wild Finish in Denver

John Wall made a pair of free throws with 10 seconds remaining to give the Washington Wizards a 117-112 lead over the Denver Nuggets.

Washington started off the sequence well, forcing a missed jumper from Darrell Arthur. Unfortunately...

Paul Pierce mimics Russell Westbrook’s “Good execution” interview

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was in some type of mood the other day with the terse interview he gave reporters following an OKC game.
