Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Early in the season, the Washington Wizards have shown they can be very good or very bad. They picked a terrible time to show their bad side. Michael Jordan and Jerry Stackhouse were shut out from the field in the fourth quarter, when the Wizards made just 2-of-22 shots, wasted an 11-point lead and suffered a 90-86 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Washington has played at extremes this season. It scored just 147 points in its previous two losses, which sandwiched a 114-69 rout of Boston. The Wizards were terrific for the first three quarters as they clamped down on Kevin Garnett and opened a 75-66 lead. But they fell apart in the final period, twice missing 10 straight shots. Jordan missed all four of his shots in the fourth quarter, having a pair of them blocked. Stackhouse was 8-of-12 through the first three periods but 0-of-5 in the final 12 minutes. "We were hitting all the jump shots, and then when the jump shots didn't fall, we had no other offense to get into," Jordan said. "We didn't penetrate inside and when we did, they were there to block shots. We got back on our heels and stayed back on our heels." The only Wizard to make a basket in the fourth quarter was Tyronn Lue, who drilled a jumper with 5:08 to go and made a meaningless layup at the buzzer. Kendall Gill scored nine of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, when Minnesota outscored Washington, 24-11. Gill also helped hound Jordan in the fourth quarter. "We had Kendall on him in the fourth quarter, and we said we would play him 1-on-1," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "The thing with MJ is, like most other players in the league, he is still trying to get his timing, and he's coming off a knee surgery." Garnett had 17 points and 16 rebounds and Troy Hudson also scored 17 points for the Timberwolves, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Stackhouse scored 25 points, Lue added 13 and Jordan 10 for the Wizards, who shot just 37 percent (30-of-81). "We've just got to put the ball in the basket," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "We had three or four opportunities in close, but we just couldn't convert. We had open looks ... we've just got to make plays." The Wizards led by 14 points midway through the third quarter and still held a 75-63 lead before committing a turnover in the waning seconds. Hudson drilled a 35-footer at the horn that seemed to spark the Wolves. "It was a huge momentum swing," Collins said. "It was the worst thing that could've happened. I'll take the blame for that." Minnesota still trailed 79-68 before going on a 10-1 spurt. Gary Trent started it with two baskets and Gill's lefthanded layup made it 80-78 with 6:10 left. Lue stopped Washington's first string of 10 straight misses with his jumper, but Rasho Nesterovic made a layup and Garnett had a step-back jumper before Gill's 3-pointer gave Minnesota the lead for good at 85-82 with 2:48 to play. After Stackhouse made two free throws, the Wizards had a chance to reclaim the lead, but Jordan had his drive swatted by Nesterovic. Gill turned it into a layup at the other end and added a jumper for an 89-84 lead with 1:30 remaining. "I've been working very hard because of my age," the 34-year-old Gill said. "I have to put in extra work to compete with the younger players. I don't like people telling me that I'm too old. I'm not old. I can do the same things if I just get the opportunity." Gill blocked Jordan's jumper on the next trip to seal the win. "Kendall is a consummate pro," Jordan said. "He's been around a long time. He's been given a shot with (Wally Szczerbiak) being out, and he's stepping up. He knows how to play the game." Nesterovic had 11 points and three blocks for Minnesota, which shot 47 percent (39-of-83) and beat Washington for the third straight time. "We were just looking for a spark," Nesterovic said. "It came in the fourth quarter with our defense, which is where our game usually starts."
