Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Gilbert Arenas made it a happy return to Oakland for the Washington Wizards' Big Three. Arenas scored 29 points and hit the game-winning layup with less than a second remaining to lift the Wizards to a 103-101 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Arenas, Larry Hughes and Antawn Jamison were teammates with the Warriors during the 2001-02 season, when Golden State finished 21-61, but were reunited in Washington, where they have become the league's highest scoring trio at 63.2 points per game. "We try to play that down somewhat," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "We told them that you're to have some nervous energy, you're going to have a lot of publicity surrounding this. But in the end, I thought they scored in the right manner." "It's fun, we all had good relationships," said Warriors guard Jason Richardson, who also was on the 2001-02 squad. "I had a good relationship with Larry and Antawn and of course Gilbert. "It's pretty fun going against them, knowing they're all on the same team. You're going to try to play good because they're your former teammates but it's a good feeling. It's a friendly rivalry." The Wizards took their largest lead, 66-52, on a basket by Hughes with 7 1/2 minutes remaining in the third quarter, but Jason Richardson rallied the Warriors, scoring 20 of his 26 in the second half. His basket with 1:36 left finally drew Golden State even, 97-97. Hughes sank a 15-footer on the other end before Richardson hit a pair of free throws to make it 99-99 with just over a minute to go. "Just stepping up and taking shots," Hughes said. "Getting looks and moving without the ball, finding a spot on the court and just knocking them down." Richardson stole the ensuing inbounds pass but missed a potential go-ahead runner with 50 seconds on the clock and Hughes hit a pull-up jumper over Mickael Pietrus. Speedy Claxton made two from the line to tie the score one last time to set the stage for Arenas, who drove past Pietrus and converted a layup with eight-tenths of a second remaining despite being fouled by Troy Murphy. Following the shot, Arenas danced at center court and chest-bumped with Hughes as the crowd exited. "It's the type of finish you just dream of," Arenas said. "You know, everyone wants to hit the game-winner and do your little celebration, so it's great I hit it against (those) guys, but I had fun." "If (Arenas is) not the quickest, he's probably the second-quickest guy in the NBA," Richardson said. "He made a good move. It was good defense. Some players just have that mentality. He's just one of those guys that gets to the rim at will." Arenas, who also hit a shot at the buzzer to give the Wizards a 52-41 lead at the half, intentionally missed the free throw to seal the victory. Jordan credited Arenas' maturity for the surprising success of the Wizards (14-9), who own the second-best record in the Eastern Conference. "He's matured so much," Jordan said. "It's incredible and that's why we're where we are. His maturity as a point guard, as a scorer and as a teammate." Hughes scored 25 points and Jamison added 18 and 11 rebounds for Washington, which improved to 3-1 on the road vs. the Western Conference this season. The Wizards recorded just two road victories against the West in 2003-04. Murphy had 15 points and 11 boards and Claxton chipped in 17 points for the Warriors, who have lost four straight. "I was proud of our effort in the second half," Golden State coach Mike Montgomery said. "I thought the guys battled back. We got a pretty good look towards the end and it didn't go in and they got a couple of tough looks and they did go in. That's hard."
