Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- No wonder Michael Jordan lobbied hard in the offseason for the Washington Wizards to acquire Charles Oakley. The vetern Oakley twice slapped the ball away from youngster DeShawn Stevenson in the final seconds, thwarting a potential tying shot and preserving Washington's 105-102 victory over the Utah Jazz. Jerry Stackhouse scored 25 points for Washington, making all 14 of his free throws. After he nailed a pair to give Washington a 103-98 lead with 25 seconds to play, Karl Malone answered with an overhead reverse scoop shot in the paint to get the Jazz within three with 19 seconds to go. Tyronn Lue was immediately fouled but missed a pair of free throws, ending a streak of 34 by the Wizards. Matt Harpring made a layup with 5.6 seconds to play to get Utah within 103-102, but Stackhouse calmly nailed another pair from the stripe with 4.5 seconds to play to restore the Wizards' three-point advantage. The Jazz called timeout and went to the 21-year-old Stevenson, who had not attempted a 3-pointer this season. The 38-year-old Oakley twice slapped the ball out of Stevenson's hands, and time ran out. Oakley, who mostly guarded Malone down the stretch, was a teammate of Jordan's in Chicago in the mid-1980s before spending most of his career as an adversary in New York. He was reunited with Jordan in the offseason, giving the Wizards frontcourt depth. "He's been patient and waiting for his chance, and tonight we needed him," Jordan said. "We needed a vet to go against a vet. I felt like Karl was utilizing his knowledge against some of our young kids and that influenced the referees to some degree. Oak came in on a minute's notice and played a heck of a ballgame." "Sometimes you roll the dice and I asked him if he could play and he said, 'I'm ready,'" Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "That's why we have a guy like Charles, to be ready in moments like that. I appreciate what he brought for us tonight and that tenacity and the lift that he gave our team." Jordan scored 19 points and gave Washington the lead for good, 95-92, on a three-point play with 2:14 left. Lue added 18 points and free agent pickup Bryon Russell, who played his first nine seasons with Utah, chipped in 16, including 10 in the fourth quarter. "I'm glad we won," Russell said. "Believe me, I didn't want to lose to Utah. That's how that is. I feel like we ain't going to lose to them and we shouldn't." "Bryon had a nice game," Jazz manager Jerry Sloan said. "He played well. I'm happy for him, glad things are going well. He deserves whatever happens to him, in that regard, because he worked hard for us. I don't have any problem with that. I wish him well." Malone scored 26 points and John Stockton added 17 and 11 assists before fouling out in the final seconds for Utah, which had won its last seven meetings with Washington. "Losing (stinks)," Malone said. "It's my 18th year and I still like to win. When you lose a tough one like that, it's hard to swallow. And the tough thing about this league is you've got another one tomorrow." Utah fell to 1-5 on the road this season, while Washington registered its fourth win in five games and earned Collins his 300th career victory. "It's a nice milestone," Collins said. "I told Michael, 'I got my first win with you (in Chicago), my first loss with you, my first win here with you, my first loss in this organization with you, and my 300th win.' So I got my first win with him and my 300th and hopefully we can win a lot more together." The Wizards jumped to a 32-19 lead after 12 minutes and extended their advantage to 42-21 on a layup by Larry Hughes with 5:37 left before halftime. But Utah got within 48-40 by the break and took its first lead at 56-55 on a runner by Stockton with 6:29 to play in the third quarter. The Wizards took a 74-72 lead into the fourth quarter, but the Jazz scored 12 of the next 14 points, taking a 83-76 advantage on a layup by Harpring with 7:39 remaining. "That was an interesting night, to say the least," Collins said. "We went from playing great to being careless to digging ourselves a hole to fighting out of it and getting a win. That was really a heck of a job by our guys to come back."
