Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Starters Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari and reserves Chris Andersen and Al Harrington each scored 17 points, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 114-94 victory over the Washington Wizards.

J.R. Smith added 14 points and Nene scored 10 in a well-rounded effort that earned Denver its ninth straight home win.
