Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Washington Wizards finally found an Atlantic Division opponent they could beat.

Richard Hamilton scored eight of his 25 points in the final three minutes as the Wizards rallied for a 107-101 victory over the New Jersey Nets.

Washington avoided a four-game season sweep against New Jersey and improved to just 2-18 against division opponents. Overall, the Wizards have won just three of their last 17 games.

"The guys just looked for me," Hamilton said. "When it got to the end, I wanted to take my time and execute. A lot of times, you don't take your time down the stretch. Tonight, I wanted to."

Sherman Douglas scored all the points in a 7-0 run that gave New Jersey a 98-84 lead with 4:17 left. But the Wizards finished the contest with a 13-3 spurt.

With the game tied, 99-99, New Jersey's Johnny Newman clanged a jumper off the back of the rim. The Nets did not get back on defense and Mitch Richmond, who scored 21 points, fed Hamilton for an easy layup that gave the Wizards the lead for good with 58 seconds remaining.

Washington repeatedly hurt the Nets in transition with a 21-2 edge in fast-break points.

"Those guys wanted the game more than us tonight," New Jersey guard Stephon Marbury said. "They came out here tonight and dominated at the end."

After New Jersey rookie Kenyon Martin missed a 3-pointer, Hubert Davis missed a short jumper in the lane for Washington, but the Nets failed to box out, allowing Jahidi White to slam in the rebound for a 103-99 lead with 23 seconds left.

"We just decided in the second half to go out there and play hard," White said. "I think everybody in the second half gave a lot toward the end. When you're winning the game you take advantage of it and that's what we did."

Christian Laettner scored a season-high 26 points off the bench for the Wizards but had just four in the fourth period.

Martin scored 21 points and Marbury added 20 for the Nets, who were unable to build on Friday's win over the New York Knicks and continue to struggle on the road.

New Jersey posted an unlikely victory at Indiana on Sunday but has dropped 13 of its last 14 away from home.

"We played to the level of the competition," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said.

The Nets jumped to a 13-1 led and held a 33-22 advantage after the first quarter. But Washington responded with a season-high 35 points in the second quarter and trailed only 59-57 at the break.

"I was pleased with the fact that after the beginning of the game, we picked up our defense and gave a tremendous effort in getting stops," Washington coach Leonard Hamilton said. "I thought we moved the ball a lot better from the offensive standpoint and we really played that way for the remainder of the game."

Marbury handed out 12 assists for the Nets, while Newman matched a career high with 11 rebounds.
