Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Washington Wizards overcame one drought Wednesday night. They hope to overcome another this season. Michael Jordan had three crucial baskets down the stretch and the Wizards survived a shaky fourth quarter en route to an important 80-74 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. One night after winning in Portland, the Wizards picked up another big win to improve to 2-2 on six-game road trip that may determine their playoff fate. Washington (34-37), which has not been to the postseason since 1997, also moved one-half game ahead of Milwaukee (34-38) for the Eastern Conference's final playoff berth. "It boils down to us taking care of business," Jordan said. "Every team is going to go through their periods. We have to worry about what we do. We can't really control what Milwaukee does. Every time we win, we move closer to the playoffs and every time we lose, we move further away from the playoffs. Hopefully the guys understand that and we can take every game one by one." In the fourth quarter, the Wizards did not look anything like a playoff contender as they missed their first 10 shots and went nearly seven minutes without a basket. But when they needed offense, the Wizards went to the 40-year-old Jordan, who came through. He scored six straight Washington points, including a jumper with 1:45 left that opened a 73-67 lead. "I told our guys, if we can get him the ball in rhythm where he doesn't have to work so hard, he's going to knock down those shots," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "He hit some big, big shots." Jordan finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds and Jerry Stackhouse added 20 points for the Wizards, who continue their road swing Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Wizards were not the only ones to misfire in the fourth quarter. Seattle missed eight of its first 10 shots in the final period as it failed to cut into the five-point deficit it faced entering the final 12 minutes. "We struggled all game," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "We had open looks throughout but we were short on our shots. Point-blank range, we were missing layups. It wasn't just the second half, I thought it was the whole game." A 3-pointer by Tyronn Lue - the Wizards' first basket of the fourth quarter - with 5:37 remaining opened a 67-61 lead. Lue finished with 11 points and four assists. After Ray Allen scored four straight points for the Sonics, Jordan converted a layup and a tough turnaround jumper over 6-10 Vladimir Radmanovic to make it 71-65 with 2:24 to play. "A couple of times they switched and I had Radmanovic on me," Jordan said. "I just used my education a little bit to beat his athleticism and was able to get off some good shots." Rashard Lewis made a layup for the Sonics, but Jordan, who went 12-of-22 from the field, answered by drilling an 18-footer with 1:45 remaining. "We never really got into any kind of set," Jordan said of his club's fourth-quarter struggles. "Their defense got us out of rhythm and once we got into rhythm I was able to get better shots and we were able to get better shots. I'm glad we were able to find our poise and to get into some type of set and I was able to get some shots." "He (Jordan) was sharp after back-to-back games and that just shows, once again, this guy's will and determination to win and find a way to get it done," McMillan said. Allen netted 17 points, Brent Barry 15 and Lewis 14 for the Sonics, who shot 37 percent (31-of-74) and committed 14 turnovers. Reggie Evans added 11 points and 11 rebounds. A 3-pointer by Radmanovic with 54 seconds left pulled the Sonics within 74-72. But Stackhouse grabbed a rebound off a miss by Bobby Simmons and scored to make it 76-72 with 15 seconds to go. "We just didnt execute the way we're supposed to," Radmanovic said. "We let them control the game. They had tempo and we were running the same temp they wanted. This was not the type of game we wanted to play. We need a faster game. When we get only 70 points that's not the type of game we want. We want a game that we can scored a hundred points and that's the reason why we lost." The Wizards took their biggest lead at 34-22 early in the second quarter on a jumper by Stackhouse, who went 7-of-18 from the field and handed out nine assists. But Barry scored eight points in a 13-2 burst to close the half, including a 3-pointer at the buzzer, to give the Sonics a 44-42 lead. Kwame Brown chipped in with 10 points for Washington, which shot 42 percent (31-of-74) and won in Seattle for just the third time in its last 23 visits.
