Season highs for Jerami Grant, Nikola Jokic in Nuggets victory

DENVER -- Two days before Thanksgiving, Jerami Grant was clearly appreciative of his teammates.

Nikola Jokic had a season-high 20 rebounds and opened some lanes for Grant, who added a season-best 20 points, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 117-104 win over the Washington Wizards Tuesday night.

"I just think I had it going," Grant told Altitude TV, "and my teammates did a good job of finding me."

Jokic finished one rebound shy of his career best and scored eight points in Denver's sixth straight win.

Will Barton had 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, Jamal Murray added 16 points and Mason Plumlee scored 15 for the Nuggets, who are 10-1 in November and ended a three-game home losing streak against the Wizards.
