The Washington Wizards look like a team that's come back to reality rather quickly, as they're losing their last five games by an average of 11 points while allowing 48.5 percent shooting from the field and 40.3 percent shooting from deep. The Denver Nuggets have a bunch of injury issues, but they've been able to find wins here and there, and they win at home by an average of 4.8 points. I can't back the Wizards in their current form, especially on the road. Give me the Nuggets and reasonable number.
