WASHINGTON (AP) - Al Harrington scored a season-high 29 points, and Danilo Gallinari and Ty Lawson each had 21 to lead the Denver Nuggets over the Washington Wizards 108-104 on Friday night.
It was the fifth win in six games for the Nuggets, who played without Nene due to a bruised right heel. He's expected back Saturday in New York.
After Arron Afflalo gave Denver a 100-98 lead on a layup with 2:07 to play, Harrington hit a 3-pointer with 1:14 left to make it 103-98.
Washington dropped to 2-13 and failed to post its first two-game winning streak. Last season, it took the Wizards 39 games to win two in a row.
Nick Young lead Washington with 25 points. John Wall had 13 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds - narrowly missing his second career triple-double.
