DENVER (AP) — Bradley Beal scored 33 points to lead the Washington Wizards past the Denver Nuggets 112-110.

The Nuggets had a chance to win at the end but Facundo Campazzo missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

The Nuggets committed 18 turnovers one game after setting an NBA record by committing just one turnover in a victory over Portland.

The Wizards swept the season series with Denver and completed a 3-1 trip out West.

Jamal Murray scored 34 points to lead Denver but threw a long pass to Campazzo in the final seconds instead of trying a potential game-winning 3.
