Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan played like Michael Jordan, Kwame Brown played like a No. 1 pick and the Washington Wizards handed the Boston Celtics a historic loss. Jordan, who had just eight points in a season-opening loss on Wednesday, scored 21 in 22 minutes and Brown had career highs with 20 points and six blocks as the Wizards handed the Celtics the worst loss in their storied history, 114-69. The worst defeat in Boston's 4,349-game history had been a 128-84 setback at Portland on January 4, 1977. "We can look at tonight philosophically," Celtics coach Jim O'Brien said. "It's never as bad as it seems. It's never as good as it seems." Jerry Stackhouse registered 22 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds for the Wizards, who shot 52 percent (43-of-82) and kept Boston under 30 percent (24-of-81). Jordan made just 4-of-14 shots and missed a breakaway dunk in Washington's 74-68 loss to Toronto but sank 8-of-15 in this one. The Wizards trailed by seven points early but took the lead for good, 22-21, on a pair of free throws by Jordan in the final minute of the first quarter. "In terms of what we all envisioned in putting this team together, tonight it worked perfectly," Jordan said. "Where the tandem was working well, our young kids gave us a big lift and our veteran guys gave us a big lift. We played extremely well. I'd like to have 55 more like this." "That was as good as I ever had a team play, just in every phase of the game," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "I looked at our coaches and said this is not the same team that played last night. That is the interesting thing about the NBA, how quickly things can change. Our guys were awesome tonight." The Wizards extended the advantage to 58-40 at halftime and took their first 20-point lead, 76-56, with 2:40 to play in the third quarter when Brown blocked a shot, ran the length of the floor and made a baseline jumper. "Coach Collins told me to be aggressive," Brown said. "I think this means going to the hole a little bit more. I just have to stay aggressive and start attacking the glass a little bit more." "I think he's terrific," O'Brien said of Brown. "I thought he was terrific the first time I saw him in the summer league before his rookie year. I think he's reminding me a little bit of Ben Wallace in Detroit with how active he is going to the glass, and he can score. He can shoot the ball. He's going to prove over and over again why he was picked No. 1 in the draft." Brown had a disappointing rookie campaign after becoming the first high school player to be selected first overall in the NBA draft. But he has had two impressive games this season, collecting 12 points and a career-high 18 rebounds in the opener. "I think he is starting to understand what it takes to play in this league," Jordan said. "I like to see the progress. I think his confidence is building and he is playing against some good players. If he can continue to play like this, he is going to make us a much better basketball team." All-Star forwards Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker had 12 points apiece, combining to make just 8-of-32 shots - 1-of-12 from the arc - as the Celtics were stunned for the second straight night. Boston was beaten at home by lowly Chicago, 99-96, on Wednesday. "There is no need to panic right now." Pierce said. "It's a long way. It's not a sprint, it's a marathon. Unfortunately, we came out of the gate a little slow, but we're going to get better as time goes along." Shammond Williams added 10 points but was the only other player in double figures for the Celtics, who were outrebounded, 59-31, and did not score over the final 4 1/2 minutes. Boston was outscored in the fourth quarter, 29-9. With the MCI Center crowd chanting, "We want Juan, we want Juan" in reference to Wizards rookie guard Juan Dixon, Collins inserted the former University of Maryland star midway through the fourth quarter. Dixon made 3-of-5 shots and finished with six points in six minutes.
