Report: Several title contenders interested in trade for Nuggets' Afflalo

Despite a win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, the Denver Nuggets have been a disaster for most of this NBA season. The team had preseason expectations of making the playoffs; suffice it to say they'll come up well short of that goal.

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.
