Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- First, the Atlanta Hawks honored Michael Jordan. Then they did serious damage to his playoff hopes. Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 24 points and got a fortuitous bounce at the buzzer to give the Hawks a 91-89 victory over Jordan and the Washington Wizards. The game was tied with six-tenths of a second left when Alan Henderson lobbed the inbounds pass from the left sideline to Abdur-Rahim along the right baseline. The 6-9 forward made a one-handed catch, landed and quickly hurled the ball toward the basket. The shot hit the left side of the rim, popped up and dropped through to end the Hawks' three-game losing streak. "That's how coach (Terry Stotts) drew the play up," Abdur-Rahim said. "Alan made a heck of a pass. Coach drew up a heck of a play. ... I don't take any credit." In his final game in Atlanta, Jordan was honored with a video tribute at halftime. He responded with a season-high 14 rebounds and scored 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter. But he failed to break an 89-89 deadlock, hitting the back of the rim with a jumper with 3.5 seconds remaining. "I had a great look at it," Jordan said. "You don't want to come in and lose a game when you felt like you needed a game bad. We fought hard. It came down to - you can call it - a lucky shot. Anytime you shoot it at the basket, you intend to make it. And he made it." The Wizards' losing streak reached four games and they slipped 2 1/2 behind idle Milwaukee for the final postseason berth in the Eastern Conference with seven games to play. While Jordan soared, Jerry Stackhouse struggled, scoring 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The 14th-leading scorer in the NBA last season, Stackhouse seemed to hint that Jordan's farewell tour has become a distraction during the Wizards' playoff push. "It's deeper than what you see, I'll leave it at that," Stackhouse said. "The focus isn't so much on the game, it's on the circumstances and situations around the game. You can't play basketball like that." Atlanta led by as many as 17 points in the first half and still had an eight-point advantage midway through the fourth quarter when Jordan fed Christian Laettner for a jumper with 5:24 to go and pulled Washington within 83-77. Jordan made a pair of free throws and a jumper to cut the margin to 83-81. "Somebody must have said something to Michael and got him fired up again," Stotts said. "We've got to tell these young guys not to do that. Michael turned it up. There's nothing to be surprised about." That "somebody" was Hawks point guard Jason Terry. "I was like, `Not the same old Mike,'" Terry said. "That was the wrong thing to do. He sure did go off after that. I think he hit about five straight." "He started talking a little trash," Jordan said. "It's cute when he tries to do that." After Theo Ratliff put the Hawks ahead by four, Jordan hit turnaround and fadeaway jumpers during a 41-second span to tie it at 85-85 with 1:51 left. Terry, who finished with 18 points and 10 assists, traded baskets with Jordan to deadlock it again. After Abdur-Rahim converted a pair from the line, Jordan assisted on Laettner's jumper from the stripe with 46 seconds remaining to make it 89-89. Laettner contributed 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting, six boards and five assists. Dion Glover added 17 points and eight rebounds and Ratliff chipped in 15 points, eight boards and three blocks for the Hawks. A day after firing general manager Pete Babcock, Atlanta improved to 19-29 since Stotts replaced Lon Kruger. "It was a nice win for us, in light of everything that's gone on," Abdur-Rahim said. "Yesterday with Pete, Dog (Glenn Robinson) being out, being on (national TV), no one really coming to see us. We wanted to gear ourselves up to go out and play and give us a good showing." Down the stretch, most of the sellout crowd of 19,850 appeared to be rooting for Jordan and the Wizards. "They have always given the highest regard and support," Jordan said. "Tonight was no different."
