WASHINGTON (AP) Danilo Gallinari scored 26 points and hit four of his five 3-pointers to lead the Denver Nuggets to a 117-113 victory over the reeling Washington Wizards on Thursday night.

After the Wizards, who have lost five of six, clawed back from an 18-point, third-quarter deficit to tie the game at 99-all, Gary Harris and Gallinari hit consecutive 3-pointers for a 105-99 lead with 3:16 to go.

Emmanuel Mudiay added 20 points for the Nuggets, who rebounded from Wednesday night's loss in Boston with a sharp performance from the 3-point line, going 9 for 18.

Garrett Temple had 20 points for Washington, which put seven players in double figures. John Wall, chosen an NBA All-Star for the third time in his career, had 17 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.

Wall was just 5 for 17 from the field and missed five of his seven 3-point attempts.
