5 must-see moments from Wizards' win over Nuggets

Here are the best plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 109-104 victory over the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center on Monday night...

1. Tim Frazier hadn't scored a point in his first two games with the Wizards this season, but his first made shot was worth the wait. With the clock ticking down in the first quarter, Frazier pulled up for a three from way, way outside to beat the buzzer:

Frazier had 10 points in 14 minutes and provided a spark off the bench, particularly in the first half.

2. John Wall didn't have his best shooting night (3-for-13), but he still managed 19 points, 12 assists, two steals and a block. This was one of his steals and it led to a rim-rattling dunk on the other end:

3. It was a night of buzzer-beaters for the Wizards. Bradley Beal got in on the fun to end the first half with a super tough layup to beat the clock:

Beal had 20 points and five rebounds on the night.

4. Wall's dunk got all the fanfare, but this play was incredibly impressive, especially when you take a second look in the slow-motion replay. Wall faced three Nuggets defenders and went up-and-under them for two. It was amazing:

5. Now for the play everyone is talking about. With :32 seconds left and the Wizards up by two, Nuggets center Nikola Jokic bumped Wizards coach Scott Brooks on the shoulder. It earned Jokic a technical and led to three quick points for the Wizards, who essentially polished off their win:

Now for some fun stuff from outside the lines. The Redskins, of course, also played on Monday night and lost to the Eagles. Unfortunately, Wizards forward Mike Scott had made a bet with an Eagles fan on the Wizards' staff. As the loser, Scott was forced to wear all Eagles gear on the flight to L.A.:

This was random, but funny. The NBC Sports Washington broadcast came back from commercial as the Pepsi Center was playing Seinfeld music:

Another good night for the Wizards, who are 3-0 and the only undefeated team left in the Eastern Conference.
