Scoreboard goes out, crowd silent, but Wiz top Nuggets 92-85

WASHINGTON (AP) The scoreboard wasn't working at the outset, when there were thousands of empty seats and the fans that did show up were quiet as can be, so the arena announcer pierced the silence Thursday night, telling the small gathering by just how much the mediocre Washington Wizards were trailing the Denver Nuggets, basket after basket.

"It was kind of, like, a gloomy feel," Denver's Wilson Chandler said.

Eventually, the overhead electronic display began functioning, and when Wizards guard Bradley Beal's airball led to a shot-clock violation with the hosts already down 12 and proud owners of seven turnovers and two made baskets, the till-then mum spectators mustered the energy to boo the home team.
