Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- The New Orleans Hornets played "Beat the Clock" to defeat the Washington Wizards. George Lynch hit a 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer and Robert Pack banked in a jumper as time expired in the third quarter, helping the Hornets get past the Wizards, 87-75, in a battle of teams jockeying for playoff position. New Orleans, which holds the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, opened a 2 1/2-game lead over Washington. The Wizards dropped into a virtual tie with Orlando for the eighth and final playoff position. The shots by Lynch and Pack were backbreakers for Washington, which fell behind 17-5 in the opening 5 1/2 minutes and never led. "We hit of lot of big shots," New Orleans guard David Wesley said. "The whole team found ways to put the ball in the basket. We struggle sometimes scoring when we need and tonight they made little runs at us, but we were able to hit big shots there at the end of the half and throughout the fourth quarter." Michael Jordan's reverse layup pulled the Wizards within 41-40 with five seconds left in the half, but Larry Hughes fouled Wesley, who was attempting a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left. After Wesley made 2-of-3 from the line, Lynch stole Jordan's inbounds pass and drilled a 25-footer at the buzzer to give New Orleans a six-point lead at the intermission. "We have not been able to get defensive stops this year when we needed them," Washington coach Doug Collins said. "They outrebounded us by 16. We shoot 38 percent. We miss nine free throws." Down by as many as nine in the third quarter, the Wizards made another run, closing to 63-60 on Jerry Stackhouse's fingerroll with 4.6 seconds to go in the period. But Pack got the ball inside the arc and banked in his jumper from the top of the key to make it 65-60 entering the final quarter. Pack started the fourth period with a pair of baskets, giving New Orleans a 69-62 with 10:47 to play. "When we get production from our bigs the way we did on the boards and scoring, then the games becomes a lot easier," Hornets forward Jamal Mashburn said. "It was important for us to get this win, especially after the loss last night (in Orlando)." The Wizards closed within 73-71 on Kwame Brown's follow shot with six minutes left but never caught the Hornets in the final period. "We got into a rhythm and got back into the game," Jordan said. "But we could never get over the hump. We missed a lot of easy shots. I know I missed a lot of easy shots." Mashburn scored 24 points and Wesley added 20 for the Hornets. Mashburn made four field goals and had nine points in the final five minutes after missing his first seven shots in the second half. Mashburn's 3-pointer capped a 11-4 spurt and gave New Orleans an 84-75 cushion with 2:08 to go. "He was shooting runners," Wesley said. "We were like, 'Where did that come from?' I mean, that's the kind of guy he is. He's an All-Star. We need that out of him. He found a way to hit those big shots down the stretch." Jordan, returning to the city where he won an NCAA national championship in 1982, led the Wizards with 20 points. It was his first game since he celebrated his 40th birthday on Monday. "George did an excellent job on MJ," New Orleans coach Paul Silas said. "He fought him all the way and didn't give him any good looks. MJ still got his 20, but I thought (Lynch's defense) was a huge key." New Orleans held on opponent under 80 points for the fourth time this season, but the first at home since December 4. The Hornets improved to 20-9 in their first year at the New Orleans Arena. Jamaal Magloire recorded his 12th double-double of the season for the Hornets, totaling 13 points and 14 rebounds. P.J. Brown just missed a double-double with eight and 13. The Wizards struggled from the field throughout, shooting just 38 percent (29-of-76). Jordan made just 8-of-23 shots. Stackhouse and Brown added 15 and 13 points, respectively, for Washington, which was 0-for-9 from 3-point range and was outrebounded, 51-35.
