DENVER (AP) — John Wall scored six of his 19 points in overtime and had 16 assists as the Washington Wizards beat the Denver Nuggets 117-115 on Sunday night.
Kris Humphries had a season-high 21 points and 14 rebounds to help Washington stop a two-game skid.
Ty Lawson had 31 points and 12 assists in his return to the Nuggets’ lineup. Lawson missed a tying jumper in the waning seconds of overtime.
Lawson was back after missing Friday’s game after being arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired early Friday morning. Lawson returned to practice Saturday.
The Wizards, who got in early Sunday morning after a loss in Portland, had more jump in overtime. They scored the first six points and appeared to have the game locked up when Wall hit two free throws to give Washington a 117-112 lead with 10.2 seconds left.
