Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan has 173 career 40-point games. On Sunday, he saw the first by Gilbert Arenas. Arenas scored 41 points and teamed with Antawn Jamison to rally the Golden State Warriors to a 113-107 victory over Jordan and the fading Washington Wizards. A second-year guard who is one of the NBA's most improved players, Arenas used his quickness and outside shooting to light up the Wizards. He made 15-of-23 shots, including 4-of-8 3-pointers. "It's special to me because when I first met him at his camp, I had a great camp and scored like 40-something the first night," Arenas said. "The day I met him I had 40-something and the day I play him for the last time I have 40-something. It hasn't caught up with me yet, but I know it's going to be a special memory." "They had a guy who we couldn't contain," Wizards guard Jerry Stackhouse said. "Nobody, from Larry (Hughes) to myself, to all (of us). ... He had a full head of steam and he's hard to stop and he made them go today." Arenas got some help from Antawn Jamison, who scored 37 points. A fellow North Carolina alumnus who idolized Jordan as a youngster, Jamison made 14-of-24 shots and pulled down 11 rebounds. "Last couple of games I've kinda been feeling it," Jamison said. "I just went out there and did what I normally do. Gilbert did a good job taking the pressure off myself and making it difficult to key in on me." While Arenas and Jamison helped the Warriors rally from a 14-point third-quarter deficit, Jordan could do very little to spark the Wizards, who dropped to 0-2 on a pivotal six-game road trip. After Friday's loss in Phoenix, Jordan blasted his teammates for not carrying their load and relying too much on him. But the 40-year-old superstar was shut out in the fourth quarter Sunday, finishing with 24 points. "I can understand if I was isolated and everybody was standing there watching, but I think the times I did get to score, it was all within the flow of what was happening," Jordan said. "Then we just stopped doing that. We stopped going to the flow of what was happening and we didn't move the ball, we didn't execute our offense and I think that really started things going downhill for us." About to embark on a five-game road trip, Golden State moved within 2 1/2 games of Houston and Phoenix, who are tied for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference. "This is the most important road trip of the season," Jamison said. "It'll be interesting to see what happens but it can really make us or break us." Stackhouse scored 18 points for the Wizards, who had seven players in double figures but suffered their third straight loss. They fell 1 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the race for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. "We lost the first two, but it hasn't killed the trip," Stackhouse said. "We can still come out where we feel we need to be and that's try to win three, hopefully four games the rest of the way." The Wizards opened their largest lead at 85-71 on a jumper by Stackhouse midway through the third quarter. Arenas scored eight points and Jamison added six in a 17-4 run that pulled the Warriors within a point. Washington went scoreless for more than four minutes, and a 3-pointer by Arenas pulled Golden State into a 93-93 tie with 8:22 left. He made another shot from the arc for a 101-99 lead before a jumper by Christian Laettner tied it for the last time with 4:28 remaining. A three-point play by Bob Sura gave the Warriors the lead. Jamison drilled a 3-pointer and Sura made two free throws for a 109-101 lead with 2:15 to go. The Wizards closed to 109-107 on a layup by Bobby Simmons with 45 seconds left. Sura's touch pass set up Adonal Foyle for a layup 20 seconds later, and Earl Boykins clinched it with a steal and layup. "We had this game in hand and didn't let our defense work for us," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "We tried to win it offensively." "We had a 15-point lead and we kinda squandered that away and that's been the MO on this team," Jordan said. "We haven't been able to finish it down the stretch, especially playing on the road." As the horn sounded, Arenas threw the ball deep into the back of the lower deck of the the Arena in Oakland. "I'm going to get the tape, and that's the tape you keep for the rest of your life," Arenas said. "It might mean nothing now, but later on in life it'll mean something big to me." Sura had 10 points and nine assists while doing a credible job in defending Jordan. The reserve guard has had some success against Kobe Bryant this season and takes pride in his defense. "(Jordan's) really crafty now with a lot of pump fakes and a lot of stuff closer to the ground, where he used to be a high flier," Sura said. "He uses his mind more than his athleticism. I like challenges like that." "Even in the first half, he really battled," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "Bobby's a real physical defender and he sticks his nose in there and seeks contact as a defender. I thought he did a great job on obviously a phenomenal player." The Warriors shot 49 percent (42-of-86), including 10-of-22 from the arc. They swept the season series from the Wizards. Laettner scored 14 points on 7-of-7 shooting and Hughes added 13 on 6-of-8. Reserves Simmons, Jahidi White and Kwame Brown scored 10 points each for the Washington, which shot 48 percent (46-of-95), including 3-of-8 3-pointers. Arenas scored 17 points in the first quarter as Golden State grabbed a 35-31 lead. But Jordan and Brown scored 10 points in the second quarter as Washington took a 68-63 lead to intermission.
