WASHINGTON, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Al Harrington broke free for a dunk with seven seconds to play Friday, clinching the Denver Nuggets' 108-104 victory over Washington.

The Nuggets fell behind by as many as 11 points in the first half before rallying for their third straight win.

Washington failed in its bid to produce back-to-back victories for the first time this season. The Wizards posted their just second triumph of the season over Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Jordan Crawford brought Washington within two with 10 seconds remaining by making two free throws, but Harrington ended the Wizards' hopes with his dunk for the last of his game-high 29 points.

Danilo Gallinari and Ty Lawson both had 21 for the Nuggets, who shot 49 percent from the field and made 10-of-21 from 3-point range.

Nick Young had 25 points for the Wizards.
