Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Voshon Lenard scored all 14 of his points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of key 3-pointers in the final four minutes, as the Toronto Raptors edged the Washington Wizards, 89-86. The Wizards played the entire second half without Michael Jordan, their 40-year-old superstar who hobbled into the locker room with back spasms midway through the second quarter and did not return. "I had no idea that he was hurt, to tell you the truth, I found out in the second half," Carter said. "We were just trying to play our game, regardless." Jordan did not speak with reporters after the game. The team announced his status was day-to-day. Lenard caught fire after missing all six shots in the first three quarters. With 4:03 left, he sank a 3-pointer that gave the Raptors the lead for good at 83-80. Thirty seconds later, he drained another shot from the arc. "It's all about having confidence in yourself, but it all starts with your coach and your teammates having confidence in you," Lenard said. Carter's bucket with 1:52 to go put Toronto ahead, 87-80. The Wizards clawed their way back, pulling within 87-86 on two free throws by Christian Laettner with 50 seconds left. But Carter sank two foul shots with 14 seconds to go, then stole the inbounds pass with eight seconds left to seal the win. Carter finished with 24 points and career high-tying six steals for the Raptors, who improved to just 7-21 on the road. "Six steals? That's what I'm saying, I'm just trying to do it all," Carter said. "This was a fun game to be a part of, more than anything. As a player, you live for these moments." Jerry Stackhouse scored 21 points for Washington, which was fighting to retain a share of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. "It was a disappointing game for us," admitted Stackhouse. "We had opportunities tonight." The teams were separated by no more than six points the entire second half. After Stackhouse's bucket with 8:45 to play gave the Wizards a 72-66 lead, Lenard ignited a 7-1 spurt with a 15-footer. A free throw by Toronto's Alvin Williams evened the game at 73-73 with 6:20 to play. Stackhouse sank a free throw, but Lenard countered with two foul shots to give Toronto a one-point edge. The free throws were the first two of 10 straight Raptors points scored by Lenard. "We couldn't get (Lenard) stopped," said Washington coach Doug Collins. "We looked at him on tape, and we knew that when he comes in that he's not passing. He took 15 shots in 25 minutes. We knew that he wasn't going to pass, but we couldn't get him stopped." Antonio Davis had 11 points and six rebounds and Williams scored six points for the Raptors, who shot 44 percent (36-of-82) in completing their second win of the season at the MCI Center. Jordan, who averaged 25.6 points per game in his five prior contests, left with four points on 2-of-5 shooting. "Michael wants to play every game as if it's his last, and that's the way we're going to do it," Collins said. "If we're in a game and we have a chance to win and I tell Michael I'm going to sit him down for a few minutes to rest, I'm going to get lasered." Larry Hughes returned from a sprained ankle to score 15 points and Kwame Brown and Laettner each netted 11 for Washington, which shot 42 percent (32-of-72) from the floor and missed all 11 3-point attempts.
