Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse and the Washington Wizards finally put together a fourth-quarter burst and pulled away from the Atlanta Hawks. Stackhouse scored 29 points and Tyronn Lue added 13 off the bench as the Wizards ended a three-game skid with an 84-76 victory over the Hawks. The Wizards had a tenuous two-point lead before embarking on a 10-2 run during a 3 1/2-minute span of the final period. Stackhouse slammed down a baseline dunk before Lue's 3-pointer capped the burst and opened a 72-62 cushion with just under six minutes to play. Atlanta got no closer than seven points thereafter. "Jerry definitely took over the game down the stretch, driving the ball to the hole, getting fouls and finding open guys," Lue said. "He definitely took over the game down the stretch and we need him and MJ (Michael Jordan) to do that for us every night." Washington recorded its fifth straight victory over the Hawks, who fell to 1-1 under coach Terry Stotts. "Our guys needed that so badly," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "We played excellent defense. (The Hawks) shot 38 percent and I think ... even the games that we've lost, we've been playing really good defense." Atlanta's Shareef Abdur-Rahim hit a jumper with 9:02 to go in the first half to become the fifth-youngest player in NBA history to score 10,000 points. "I didn't know it was such a big deal, but ... it's an honor," Abdur-Rahim said. "My situation is that I've just been on teams where I've had to score and they went to me. It's a blessing, though, I'm thankful. I've got a while longer I can play to keep doing some of the same things - hopefully better - and win some more ballgames." The All-Star forward is 26 years, 17 days old. Bob McAdoo was 25 years, 148 days when he became the youngest player to accomplish the feat. Shaquille O'Neal, Jordan, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar also reached the milestone before their 26th birthdays. Jason Terry paced the Hawks with 22 points and Abdur-Rahim had 18 and eight rebounds, but Atlanta lost for the seventh time in nine games. Just a night before, Terry made Stotts' coaching debut a successful one, nailing an off-balance jumper as time expired for an 81-79 victory over San Antonio. "Last night was a big win, an emotional win," Stotts said. "I thought the way they fought in a back-to-back against a fresh team, the road wins are going to come. Like last night, the wins are going to come. And when it breaks, it's going to break." The Wizards' leading scorer, Stackhouse bounced back from Thursday's sub-par outing against his former team, Detroit. "I think he feels like he left something on the court, and he thinks he wanted to come in and more or less be that guy for us, whenever we need him," Jordan said. "He hit some big shots tonight and that's what we're going to have to do - somehow just read each other and know when to move the ball, when to pass the ball and hit the guy open." Washington's offense was stymied for much of the opening three quarters by Atlanta's zone defense, but the Wizards took a 59-55 lead into the fourth. Brendan Haywood converted a three-point play with 9:18 left to give the Wizards a 65-60 advantage and spark the pivotal run. "We saw (zone defense) pretty much the whole game, so we were able to make adjustments and knock shots down," said Jordan, who chipped in 11 points and six boards. "They wanted to play zone the whole time because of some difficult matchups. But we got smart and we were forced to pass the ball because, against a zone, you can't hold the ball." Stackhouse made a pair from the line and, after Atlanta's Glenn Robinson hit a jumper, drove for a dunk to make it 69-62 with 7:14 left. "All that matters is that we win the game, it doesn't matter how we do it," Stackhouse said. "There are a lot of ugly wins in the NBA and this happens to be one of them. But we did what we had to do and we have to build off this." The Wizards have won both meetings with the Hawks this season.
