Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse took Michael Jordan off the hook. Stackhouse's dunk at the buzzer capped a frantic finish and gave the Washington Wizards a 100-99 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, who have lost three straight games. In control for most of the game, the Wizards squandered a 12-point lead in the final 5 1/2 minutes. Despite a season-high 25 points, Jordan faltered in the clutch, committing a silly foul and missing two free throws in the final 30 seconds. After Jordan's free throw gave Washington a 98-96 lead with 11 seconds left, Los Angeles moved the ball from superstar Kobe Bryant to hot-shooting Brian Shaw to clutch performer Robert Horry, whose 3-pointer from the left corner gave the Lakers the lead with 2.9 seconds to go. On Washington's final possession, Jordan was a decoy as he drifted to the weak side of the court. Stackhouse inbounded to Bryon Russell, rubbed his man off a pick and took a return pass for a wide-open dunk that replays showed clearly beat the buzzer. "It had to be a quick-hitting play," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "We put Michael in the corner and rubbed him off Bryon Russell and we knew they would stay with him, which would open up the side." "Everybody was looking at me as if I was an option, which I was more or less a decoy, and he was able to get an easy layup," Jordan said. Stackhouse scored 29 points for the Wizards, who have won consecutive games for the first time this season. "I knew three seconds was a lot of time, and as soon as he caught the pass, I made the cut," Stackhouse said. "If I saw someone there, I might have pulled up, but once I saw daylight I felt like I could get there." Lakers coach Phil Jackson said forward Devean George missed his assignment. "Devean was told not to let Stackhouse get the ball back because we knew that was the intent," Jackson said. Bryant scored 27 points and Shaw added a season-high 20 for the Lakers (2-5), who went winless on their three-game road trip. They are three games under .500 for the first time since the end of the 1993-94 season, when they were 33-49. "This is the worst road trip that I've been on in the four years that I've been here," Shaw said. "We've never come off the road and not win any games. Obviously, we have to play a lot better." Suspended forward Rick Fox returned, but superstar center Shaquille O'Neal remained sidelined with a toe injury as the Lakers fell five games in the loss column behind unbeaten Dallas for the best record in the Western Conference. "I'm not pleased with the way we're playing," Jackson said. "There's a limitation to how well we can play without Shaquille and the people understand that. I was downplaying when I said we might start 0-7, 1-6 or 2-5. But here we are 2-5 and it's not a surprise to me." The Lakers trailed, 88-76, midway through the final period before Horry made two free throws and Shaw drilled a pair of 3-pointers. Bryant scored over Jordan to make it a two-point game with 3:48 to go. Jordan answered with two free throws and Larry Hughes drove for a layup, rebuilding the lead to six points. When Stackhouse sank two from the line, the Wizards had a 94-88 advantage with 55 seconds remaining. Shaw hit a foul line jumper and Fox drew a silly foul from Jordan as he made a layup. Fox's free throw made it 94-93 with 25 seconds to play. Stackhouse made two free throws and Shaw missed potential tying a 3-pointer before Jordan split a pair from the line for a 97-93 lead with 17 seconds remaining. Shaw sank a 3-pointer and Jordan again went 1-of-2 from the stripe, setting up the wild finish. "Actually, I told guys to foul Michael," Jackson said with a smile. "He hasn't been shooting his foul shots well this year." Beating his former coach for the first time in three tries, Jordan was 9-of-14 from the field but just 7-of-12 from the line. Stackhouse made 9-of-23 shots and 11-of-11 free throws. As well as the Lakers executed on their final possession, they knew they had left the Wizards too much time. "You don't ever want to get a shot like that with that much time," Horry said. "That's three seconds, almost, and a lot can happen in three seconds. And a lot happened." "Instead of acting like that was what we were supposed to do because we've done it so many times, we were actually jumping and hugging each other and there was still 2.9 seconds left in the game and it wasn't over yet," Shaw said. It looked over in the third quarter, when Washington extended a 49-40 halftime lead to 17 points before settling for a 74-60 advantage entering the final period. Hughes and Kwame Brown scored 13 points each for the Wizards and Horry had 13 for the Lakers. Both teams shot 46 percent (36-of-79). "It was a miraculous comeback for us, but we probably didn't deserve to win it, I guess," Jackson said.
