Nuggets beat Wizards to keep pace in playoff chase

WASHINGTON (AP) Will Barton tuned out the friends and family shouting his name because he had a much bigger concern.

Essentially shooting for his team's season, Barton scored 14 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as the Denver Nuggets beat the Washington Wizards 108-100 on Friday night to keep their playoff hopes alive. Denver is on the outside looking in on the Western Conference playoff picture, but has now won two in a row to put some more heat on the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz.

"We're in must-win mode every game," said Barton, who was 5 of 7 from 3-point range. "Everyone wants to try to do their part to make sure we get a win."
