GAME RECAP

Calbert Cheaney's jumper with 44 seconds remaining capped a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback that lifted the Washington Wizards to a 112-110 victory over the Vancouver Grizzies, who suffered their 13th straight defeat.

Juwan Howard scored 25 points and Chris Webber 24 for the Wizards, who trailed 104-91 with 5:28 remaining, but finished the game with a 21-6 run to keep the Grizzlies winless in 1998.

"I'm proud of our team, and the pride keeps growing by leaps and bounds," Washington coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "I can't say enough about how this team stepped it up in the fourth and was able to come back like they did."

The Grizzlies had a chance to tie as Blue Edwards drove the length of the court in the final five seconds. But Webber blocked Edwards' layup attempt at the buzzer to preserve the win.

"We didn't picture a game like this in the beginning, but to be able to come back just shows what this team is capable of," Webber said. "We didn't want to go to OT. It just feels real good and a big sigh of relief."

After Tracy Murray's jumper gave the Wizards a 110-108 lead with 1:13 remaining, Otis Thorpe hit a pair of foul shots to tie the game for the final time 13 seconds later.

Thorpe had 15 of his team-high 21 points in the first half, when the Grizzlies raced to a 72-57 lead. Vancouver opened its biggest lead at 69-51 on Thorpe's three-point play with 2:29 left in the half.

Vancouver managed just 38 points in the second half after setting franchise records with 72 points in the first half and 40 in the first quarter.

Washington climbed back in the game by allowing only 16 points in the third quarter, pulling within 88-80.

"We have to go out and concentrate on ourselves and not make the little mistakes that make you lose games," Vancouver coach Brian Hill said. "We broke down in our offensive execution. They were a lot more physical, especially in the second half, and got on the offensive boards more."

Vancouver opened a 104-91 lead on Lloyd Daniels' jumper with 5:28 remaining, but scored only six points in the final five minutes. Murray's jumper capped a 10-0 run that pulled the Wizards within 104-101 with 3:29 to play.

Webber's three-point play cut Vancouver's lead to 108-106 with 2:13 left, before Howard's jumper off a steal tied the game 10 seconds later.

Vancouver shot 65 percent in first half on 31-of-48 shooting and finished at 53 percent.

"We just kept pushing and pushing and were able to execute on the (offensive) end in the fourth," Wizards point guard Rod Strickland said. "They were killing us in the first half, but we just stuck with it."

Webber scored at least 20 points for the 11th straight game, while Strickland added 23 points and 12 assists for his 21st double-double of the season. Murray also scored 23 points, marking the first time this season the Wizards had four players score 20 or points in a game.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 20 points and Sam Mack 17 for the Grizzlies, who fell to 2-17 on the road. Vancouver has dropped nine straight on the road.

"We just aren't doing what it takes to win games," Abdur-Rahim said. "We gave the game away. You could see them picking up their intensity and they executed better down the stretch. We need a win badly, no matter who we play."

The Wizards, who snapped a three-game home losing streak, improved to 12-3 at the new MCI Center.
