Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Kwame Brown and rookie Steve Blake looked impressive down the stretch against the powerful Indiana Pacers. Brown scored 10 of his career-high 25 points and Blake 15 of his season-high 18 in the fourth quarter as the Washington Wizards surprised the Pacers, 107-96. It was just the second time this season the Pacers had lost back-to-back games and the first since December 26-27. "Everybody saved the day for us, everybody was a hero," said Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, whose team had lost four of six. "That is what we needed. We respect that team a great deal because they are veterans and they are deep. We just stepped up to the challenge in every phase of the game." Washington never trailed but saw a 12-point lead with 8:35 remaining dwindle to 83-79 on a 3-pointer by Al Harrington with 7:07 left. But Brown nailed a jump shot, rookie Jarvis Hayes sank a jumper with the shot clock expiring and Larry Hughes made a layup off a feed from Blake to extend the advantage to 89-79 with 5:28 left. Indiana got no closer than six points thereafter. "After the teams made a couple threes, we wanted to get it under control, settle down and get it to the post," Brown said. "I was able to convert. ... I'm not a selfish player. When I get it, I'm looking for my teammates. When it's time to take a shot, I do." "I just tried to do my role," said Blake, who had five assists and no turnovers. "Everyone stepped up in the fourth quarter. We led the whole game. It's just good to see we can finish a game out." Hughes scored 16 points and reserve Brendan Haywood 12 for the Wizards, who shot 51 percent (35-of-69) overall and a season-high 63 percent (22-of-35) in the first half as they took a 57-50 edge into the break. "When we give up 63 percent shooting in the first half of a game, it's a bad sign," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "We simply can't afford to have those types of lapses on defense. Giving up 107 points, we will never win against anyone. I think it is something we will realize after tonight." Harrington scored 21 points, Ron Artest added 15 and Jermaine O'Neal 12 and 15 rebounds for the Pacers, who had won 12 of 13 before Friday's home loss to Houston and gave up 100 points for just the fourth time this campaign. "I'm not shocked the Wizards can play like that," Artest said. "The only thing the Wizards don't know how to do is win consistently. The Wizards will step up for us, but they have to learn to do that against someone who is not as good as us." Washington frequently got to the free-throw line, making 34-of-41, with Blake sinking 12-of-13. Indiana went 19-of-21. "I was able to penetrate, draw some fouls, and finish it off by knocking down free throws," Blake said. "If that's what's working, then you use it." Blake set a season high in scoring for a second straight game. He had 17 in Friday's 100-89 loss at Boston. "There's nothing going wrong. We just lost two games," O'Neal said. "We're still 20 games over .500. We're just going to continue to play."
