Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan continued to look more like his old self as he scored a season-high 33 points and led the Washington Wizards to their third straight victory, a 118-100 triumph over the Memphis Grizzlies. Coming off his first 30-point game of the season Tuesday at Atlanta, Jordan scored 18 points in the first quarter as the Wizards opened a 10-point lead and never looked back. Jordan has posted his best scoring efforts of the season in the past two games after tying a career low with two points in the first game of Washington's streak on Sunday at Toronto. "The thing that I wanted people to understand when I scored the two points was that you don't have to be a scoring, offensive threat to make an impact on this team," said Jordan, who had nine assists and eight rebounds against the Raptors and had five boards in this game. "I think it showed that a guy who's averaged 32 points his whole career is not afraid to get two points," he added. "I guess when I score two points, everybody looks at it as if either I'm losing a step or I'm 50 years old or whatever, so that attacks the competitive juices in me, too. So obviously, the reverse had to happen the next couple games." Jordan shot 14-of-23 from the field and relished the chance to emphasize that he can still play at the level he once achieved nightly. "I think most of the people coming to watch me play the game of basketball (come) because of the unknown," Jordan said. "On a given night I can go for 51, and on any other night I might not get to that, but you never know. No one thought I could come out and have 18 in the first quarter or 23 at the half." The Wizards led by as much as 23 points in the second quarter before settling for a 67-46 lead at halftime. Washington shot 64 percent (27-of-42) in the first half, and then preserved the lead by shooting 59 percent (20-of-34) after intermission. "We were a step slow tonight and to their credit they really shot the ball well," Memphis forward Shane Battier said. "We let them get the momentum early on and they never really relinquished it." Brendan Haywood had 11 points and a season-high 12 rebounds for Washington, which also got 14 points and 10 rebounds from reserve Kwame Brown en route to a 37-25 advantage on the boards. "It was a great win for us tonight and a great way for us to finish up a really good week," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "This was a very scary game for us tonight. Memphis has been playing great basketball. They've been playing with a lot of confidence. I thought in the first half we played about as efficiently as you can play." The Wizards tied an MCI Center record with their 67-point first half and set a season high for total points. "We're getting better and my confidence is better because we are getting wins," said Jerry Stackhouse, who collected 25 points and seven assists. "I don't think that anyone is overconfident, but at the same time, it feels good to get some wins." Pau Gasol scored 25 points but could not spark Memphis to its sixth victory in seven games. The Grizzlies, who are 6-7 since snapping their season-opening 13-game losing streak against the Wizards on November 23, continued to struggle on the road, falling to 1-12 away from home.
