Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Washington Wizards had the better clutch players. Jerry Stackhouse scored 16 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter and Michael Jordan had a key basket down the stretch as the Wizards posted a 100-95 victory over the Boston Celtics. Trying to exact measure of revenge for a 45-point loss - the worst defeat in franchise history - to the Wizards in October, the Celtics squandered a seven-point fourth-quarter lead as stars Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker disappeared. Washington stepped had its best players step up as Stackhouse scored all but 10 of his club's points in the final 12 minutes. "We knew they had some motivation coming in," Stackhouse said. "They (Celtics) came out and did some good things. We thought we played a terrible first half. We thought if we could get something going both offensively and defensively, we had a chance to come in here and get this game. Fortunately for us, those things happened in the second half." "Jerry was tremendous in the fourth period when we needed him," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "Michael hit the big shot to put us ahead on the three-point play, but it was our defense that I really thought was the difference in the game." But it was the 39-year-old Jordan - the reigning NBA Player of the Week - who had the biggest basket. With the Wizards trailing, 95-93, he drilled a fadeaway jumper from the right side while drawing a foul on Eric Williams. He converted the free throw to give the Wizards the lead for good with 32 seconds remaining. "This team is starting to look like a team," said Jordan, whose club returned to .500 at 17-17. "We fought ourselves back. Jerry got hot and we went to him. When you look at the win, you obviously look at Jerry's 37 points but you have to look at a lot of things overall." Those were the only points of the fourth quarter for Jordan, who finished with 19, 11 rebounds and seven assists in 39 minutes. Pierce collected 30 points - seven in the fourth quarter - and Walker had just two of his 17 in the final 12 minutes for the Celtics, who have lost five of their last six games. "It was a number of things throughtout the game with turnovers and offensive rebounds at crucial times of the game," Pierce said. "But I thought we competed at a high level. We just didn't make the plays down the stretch that we needed." "We just lost the game," Walker said. "We need to get a win, but we've made it hard on ourselves. We had an opportunity in mid-December to put a decent record together, but we put our backs up against the wall schedule wise." After relinquishing a 10-point third-quarter lead, the Celtics looked to regain control and took an 89-82 advantage with 6:48 remaining on two foul shots by Pierce. Stackhouse took over the offense, scoring six points around a basket by Larry Hughes to give Washington a 90-89 lead with 3:32 to play. Stackhouse, who was matched against Pierce at different times, finished 11-of-21 from the field and made all 11 foul shots. He made 5-of-8 shots in the fourth quarter. Tony Battie, who had a big game with 10 points and 15 rebounds, gave the Celtics their last lead at 95-93 with 62 seconds remaining, converting a pair of foul shots. But Jordan annswered on the ensuing trip, giving the Wizards the lead for good. Jordan finished 7-of-18 from the floor, working primarily against the bigger Williams. After Jordan's basket, Pierce missed a jumper from the left side and Stackhouse drew a foul on the rebound. Stackhouse made the free throws with 22 seconds left and, after a timeout, Pierce threw a pass into the stands. The mistakes down the stretch overshadowed a big game for Pierce, who made 10-of-23 shots and all eight free throws. He added six rebounds and six assists. Boston was careless, committing 17 turnovers. The Celtics also settled for jump shots, making just 8-of-32 3-pointers. Walker's layup gave the Celtics their biggest lead at 61-51 with 5:52 remaining in the third quarter. But the Wizards answered with a 15-2 surge, capped by two foul shots by Stackhouse for a 66-63 lead. In the fourth quarter, the Celtics went away from Walker, who attempted just three shots. He finished 7-of-19 from the field. Hughes added 16 points for the Wizards, who shot 47 percent (34-of-73). Boston finished at 43 percent (36-of-83) and held a 42-37 rebounding advantage.
