Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- With Richard Hamilton at Michael Jordan's side, not even the league-leading Sacramento Kings could defeat the Washington Wizards.

Hamilton scored 33 points as the Wizards upended the Kings, 108-101, and remained unbeaten since his return.

Jordan added 25 points and nine assists for Washington, which improved to 5-0 since Hamilton came off the injured list prior to its victory at Cleveland on January 31. He had sat out more than a month with a groin injury. In all, the Wizards have won 13 straight games when both Hamilton and Jordan play.

"It's really nice to have Rip (Hamilton) back because if Michael gets tired, we have another guy that we can go to and get points for us," Wizards coach Doug Collins said.

Washington won for the sixth time in eight games despite playing without Jahidi White (sore throat) and Hubert Davis (viral infection). Led by Jordan, the Wizards head to the All-Star break with a surprising 26-21 record.

"We've got 26 wins and we still have 35 games left," Jordan said. "We've got a good chance of putting ourselves in a good predicament, which all along I felt like we could. In some ways you want to think greedy, but nut-cutting time is starting to come."

Popeye Jones chipped in 18 points on 8-of-8 shooting and grabbed 15 rebounds, both season highs, and Chris Whitney tallied 15 and eight assists for Washington.

"This is a good win," Jones said. "We wanted to come out and have a good showing. Sacramento is a very good team. We play excellent, not to take anything away from them. Everybody came ready to play knowing we have three days to rest. We wanted to come out and take control and we were able to do that."

Sacramento began the third quarter with a 15-6 run, taking a 63-61 lead. Mike Bibby capped the run with a 3-pointer with 7:02 left.

But Washington responded with a 30-9 burst, including the final 11 points of the third quarter. After Hamilton hit a jumper to begin the fourth period, the Wizards held their biggest lead, 91-72. Hamilton had nine points during the run.

"I thought that we really got impatient offensively," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We never moved the ball tonight at all. We were trying to have two guys win the game for us with one or two passes and that is just not how we play."

Former Wizard Chris Webber had 21 points and nine rebounds for the Kings, who beaten Washington six straight times.

"I don't want to make excuses -- first and foremost, they beat us," Webber said. "But this is the last out of six games in eight days. We have to be up for the challenge, but in this one situation I look at it more as just what happened to us, the sicknesses of guys, things that are going on. But that is not to take away from their win."

Fellow All-Star Peja Stojakovic added 16 points and seven boards for Sacramento, which went 2-2 on a four-game, five-day road trip. Both of the losses occurred in the second of back-to-back games.

Washington scored a season-high 35 points in the first quarter to take a 13-point lead. The Wizards were up 55-48 at the half behind Jordan's 19 points and Hamilton's 18.

"This is the type of emotion I always envisioned about this team, where the young guys just feed off each other," Jordan said. "I told everybody before the game, `We've got nothing to lose. Everybody expects us to lose by 25 anyway, so just go out there and have fun and play hard. You never know. When you work hard, good things happen.'"

Despite the loss, the Kings enter the break at 37-12, 2 1/2 games ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers in the Pacific Division.

"It's sad, but this game is probably bigger to them than to us," Webber said. "This is not the way you want to end the first half of the season, but we're still in first place and feeling good, so we're OK."
