Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse heard Michael Jordan loud and clear. Stackhouse scored 31 points, including 15-of-15 from the line, to help lift the Washington Wizards to an important 106-105 victory over the Orlando Magic. Jordan chastised his teammates for their lack of support and desire to win following the Wizards' 97-96 loss at New York on Sunday. Stackhouse, who also voiced some complaints with his teammates, had just five points in the contest. This time, Stackhouse scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. He sank two free throws to give Washington the lead for good, 93-91, with 3:24 left, then added a three-point play and six free throws in the final 74 seconds, including a pair from the stripe that gave Washington a four-point lead with four seconds left. "We know the motive of the statements was to inspire us to play, and I think it worked," Stackhouse said. "We all came out inspired. We made a couple of mistakes at times, but for the most part everybody played hard and tried to do the right thing for us to win the game." "We felt coming in tonight like we were coming into the lion's den," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "We knew they were angry. Their player-coach-owner challenged them, and it was a hell of a challenge. It was a smart thing to do by (Wizards coach Doug Collins) and a smart thing to do by Michael. They both got something out of everybody." Jordan scored 23 points, Larry Hughes added 20, Christian Laettner 13 and Brandon Haywood 11 for the Wizards, who moved one game behind Milwaukee for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff berth and 1 1/2 back of the Magic. "It felt good to come out with a good showing," Hughes said. "We were doing things aggressively, and everybody saw it was going to be a good game for us." "That wasn't the same team we saw play the Knicks, and we were hoping it would be," Rivers said. "We could've withstood Jordan's (production), but we couldn't withstand Larry Hughes and Stackhouse. I thought Brendan Haywood played a hell of a game. A lot of unsung heroes in this game for them." Tracy McGrady had another a phenomenal game for Orlando, scoring 43 points - his 10th 40-point game of the season - on 16-of-26 shooting. "I wanted to go out there and try to win the game," McGrady said. "It's a crucial part of the season. It's a crucial time for us to try to rack up wins and try to move up the ladder into playoff spots." "He hit everything he could," Jordan said. "We did the best job that we possibly could. He hit some great shots." Rookies Gordan Girieck and Drew Gooden added 14 and 12 points, respectively, for the Magic, who had won eight of their previous 10 games. Both teams shot 53 percent from the field, but Orlando was 11-of-20 from the arc while Washington was 0-of-2. However, the Wizards connected on 30-of-32 free throws while the Magic sank only 12-of-17. "We lost the game in a lot of areas," Rivers said. "One, the free-throw line. We didn't get to the line a whole bunch. They got to the line a lot." After Gooden dunked off a feed from Giricek to get Orlando within 100-99 with 19 seconds left, Stackhouse countered with two from the line less than a second later. McGrady then drove into the paint and fed Chris Whitney in the left corner for a game-tying shot, but the former Wizard threw up an airball amid heavy pressure. Stackhouse grabbed the rebound, was fouled and sank another pair from the stripe to give Washington a five-point lead. "It was a big shot," Whitney said. "I'm not afraid to take it, but I could have gotten a better one. Actually, I think somebody else might have been open. Next time I just have to make a better basketball play." "We clicked tonight because we moved the ball, played good defense, made those guys shoot a lot of jump shots and we were able to get easy buckets on the other end," Hughes said. Washington outscored Orlando in the paint, 48-28. Neither team led by more than seven points in a contest that featured 20 ties and 12 lead changes. Barring a meeting in the playoffs, it was the last meeting between Jordan and McGrady. The 40-year-old Jordan announced earlier this season that it would retire after completing his two-year contract at the end of the campaign. "I wanted to come out and have a big game for myself individually because this is my last time playing against him," McGrady said. "It's kind of a message like, 'OK, you did what you had to do. Now it's up to us. You're passing the torch to guys like myself and Kobe (Bryant). "Not only just putting up numbers but doing things off the court, just being role models and having an impact and being an inspiration to a lot of people, which is what he was. We're just trying to do what he did." But thanks largely to his teammates, Jordan got the victory. "I guess the best battle will be to see him play abainst Kobe instead of him playing against me, but we won the game," Jordan said. "I've been in similar situations where the home crowd wanted to see me score 50 but they wanted to see the home team win. That's what happened. He scored 40 points, and we won, and at the end of the day, that's what matters." "That hurts more than anything," McGrady said. "I could've came out here and had 10 points and if we would've won, I'd been happy, but for him to get the win is just tearing me up right now. The game that I had really doesn't mean anything."
