The Denver Nuggets won a road game. Let me repeat: the Nuggets won just their sixth game of the season on the road in Washington 120-109. It was a bit of a snoozer and the Nuggets needed one of those games on the road, especially for the first game of a back-to-back.
First things first, anyone notice J.R. Smith not playing tonight?
Ben Hochman had this to say via Twitter when I asked him about "Swish" ...

The Nuggets combined for 23 assists tonight on 41 made field goals ... it was just the 9th time in 19 road games where they have put up 20+ assists. Denver is now 5-4 on the road when they have 20+ assists.
There wasn't a ton of defense tonight ... Denver shot 50.6% on the night and Washington was even better shooting 51.2% on the night.
The Nuggets outscored the Wizards 36-6 from downtown tonight. Denver shot 12-23 from deep and the Wiz were just 2-13 from deep.
