90-95. Brown Jr. and the Wizards defense surprise the Nuggets

 Denver (USA), .- The rookie forward Tony Brown jr. scored 24 points, and power forward Jabari Parker and center Thomas Bryant contributed 20 points apiece that helped the Washington Wizards beat the Denver Nuggets 90-95.

Along with the effective attack of the Wizards, his defense was also the key to victory by limiting the Nuggets to only 28 points scored in the second half.

With nothing to play, the Wizards are already eliminated from the playoffs, the Washington team not only took the triumph that cost the Nuggets to stop sharing the lead of the Western Conference with the Golden State Warriors, but also lost by injury to Canadian base Jamal Murray.

Murray’s field trip came in the third period when he suffered a sprained left ankle and did not return to the game with the team.

The ankle is the same one that was already injured on January 26 and that cost him to be low until February 4 and miss six games.

The Serbian center Nikola Jokic with a double-double of 23 points and 14 rebounds returned to be the leader of the Nuggets, whom this time he could not save from the defeat, the third in the last five games.
Jokic reached the 53 double-doubles so far this season, including 12 that ended up as triple-doubles.

The Nuggets have now reduced their lead as leaders of the Northwest Division to just three game away from the Portland Trail Blazers, who are second.

While the Rockets of Houston, leaders of the Southwest Division, are now only two and a half games away to tie for the second best Western Conference record, since tonight, the Golden State Warriors, who won by beating 137 -90 to the Charlotte Hornets, they are the first solo players.
Spanish power forward Juancho Hernangómez continued without having minutes with the Nuggets for the second consecutive game. (EFE)
