The Wizards travel home from Chicago to host the surging Nuggets Thursday night at Capital One Arena. The Wizards, on the second leg of a back-to-back, were unable to snare the victory at the United Center, losing in overtime to a rejuvenated Bulls squad.
Jabari Parker was spectacular off the pine, going for 28 points, but it wasn't enough to hold of Lauri Markkanen, 33 points and 12 rebounds. Bradley Beal was able to tie up the game at the end of regulation to put five more minutes on the clock, but mistakes and blown coverage late in the contest proved too much for the Wizards to handle.
Denver is looking to continue their regular-season domination. Currently holding down the top spot in the Western Conference, the Nuggets are fresh off of an impressive road win in Boston against Kyrie Irving and the Celtics. Nikola Jokic went for 21 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists on Monday night at the Garden and Boston was unable to hold off the visiting squad.
The Nuggets look to continue their outstanding play Thursday in the Nation's Capital.
