The Wizards did not fall into the Nuggets' trap. The Nuggets' goal is to bait teams into quick shots and then turn the game into a wild shootout. That didn't happen. The Nuggets defeated the Wizards 75-74. On the season, Denver averages 104 points per game.
The Wizards had their chances.
Glen Rice started in place of Webster. It was his first career start and he had 7 points and 3 steals.
Rice visited with Glenn Consor.
Again, energy was there...Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw:
“I was really concerned the entire game, especially the way they started out the game. Just killing it on the offensive boards. We did a pretty good job on the initial stop, but they got second and third chances that allowed them to get buckets and just kinda wore us down.”
