Bump and run: Late technical helps Wizards nip Nuggets

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- Nikola Jokic was nearly the hero for the Denver Nuggets, but one ill-advised path to the bench hurt his team in a disappointing home loss.

Jokic scored 13 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth quarter, but a technical foul for bumping Washington coach Scott Brooks on his way to the bench with 32.2 seconds left helped the Wizards hold on for a 109-104 win Monday night.

Jokic's offensive breakout was overshadowed by his run-in with Brooks.
