In the End it Just Didn't Add Up for the Wizards

December 10, 2013

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.


The Wizards missed Martell Webster and Nene because of injuries. Trevor Booker replaced Nene in the starting lineup and delivered 12 points and 12 rebounds.


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:

ā€œI 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.ā€
