Video: Nuggets blew the last play against the Wizards so badly

Jamal Murray

The Denver Nuggets blew their game against the Washington Wizards on Thursday night with a mental fart at the end.

Denver was down by two points 112-110 with around five seconds left and the clock ticking down. Jamal Murray had the ball for a 3-on-1. Even though the lone Wizards defender went out to Murray, the other two Nuggets players hung out by the three-point line, even though they would have had a wide open layup to tie the game. Take a look at the video:

Former NBA player Jared Sullinger summed up the issue.

That was not heads-up basketball. Facundo Campazzo ended up taking and missing a 3-pointer at the buzzer. You have to wonder what Michael Porter Jr. was thinking. He had a clear open path to the basket and decided to hang out at the 3-point line next to Campazzo. What a blown opportunity.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone called it a “wasted opportunity.”

Murray said he expected Porter to cut to the basket. He also said he should have shot the ball instead of passing it.
