Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Larry Hughes provided another frenetic finish for the Washington Wizards. Hughes made a driving layup over Desmond Mason with six-tenths of a second to play, giving the Wizards their sixth straight win, a 105-103 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Hughes scored 23 points, Antawn Jamison added 22 and Gilbert Arenas 20 for the Wizards (21-13), who are eight games over .500 for the first time since the 1978-79 season - the last time they reached the NBA Finals. They have been making things difficult for themselves as they followed the pattern of building a big lead, blowing it and scrambling down the stretch for the third game in a row. "It seems like we've been in these types of games all year long," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "We just couldn't shake them. Then, we get back in with our (defense), create some turnovers and get some easy baskets." "We don't worry," Hughes said. "Like tonight, I looked up on the clock and there was still 5:11 left. We took our time and made our shots. We just don't worry." Hughes dribbled above the top of the arc against Mason, a solid defender. He drove right and soared for a one-hander over Mason, off the glass and in, silencing the crowd at the Bradley Center. "I was in rhythm," Hughes said. "I was using the dribbles to get in a rhythm. I was watching his feet to see if he knew where I was going, and he didn't. Everything was in slow motion on that last play." Mason said he would have forced Hughes to his left had he known how the Wizards were set offensively behind him. Mason did not know where his help defense was on the play. "He just put his head down and got to the basket," Mason said. "I've got to get in front of him. He got a shot off that was pretty contested, but that's something I can't let happen. I feel I'm a better defensive player than that. I should have made him take a jumper." The game-winning shot came after Hughes slacked off Michael Redd, who drilled the game-tying 3-pointer with 18 seconds to go. It was Milwaukee's only 3-pointer of the game. "I didn't expect that," Hughes said. "I was expecting him to at least take a dribble in. That was the one guy we said could tie the game up, and he did it. He's a great shooter." The Wizards led by 11 points early in the third quarter when their play deserted them. They were outscored, 32-18, in the period and trailed, 79-74, entering the final 12 minutes. They got a lift from reserve Juan Dixon, who scored 11 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, including a three-point play that pulled Washington into an 83-83 tie with 8:50 to play. But Arenas was the only Wizard to score over the next four minutes, and the Bucks built a 95-87 lead with just over four minutes left. Washington rallied behind Hughes, who sank a 3-pointer and two free throws to tie the game with 2:43 remaining. Jamison made two free throws and Dixon drilled a jumper to cap a 12-0 spurt and give the Wizards a 99-95 edge with 1:39 to go. "I just wanted to make something happen on the defensive end, disrupt their offense," Dixon said. "That's what happens when you play hard. You win games. We played with a lot of guts the last six minutes of the game." "He was special for us on both ends of the floor," Jordan said. "He made some shots that were really contested." Two free throws by Dixon made it 103-100 with 21 seconds left before Hughes went from goat to hero. "We got the matchups that we wanted," Milwaukee coach Terry Porter said. "We didn't get the help that we needed. Guys should have stepped in there and make him make another pass. We shouldn't let a guy get all the way to the basket." "We want to let it run down so that they can't get another shot," Jordan said. "Larry executed it perfectly. You put the ball in your guys' hands, and we've got some special guys in that locker room." The Wizards improved to 8-8 away from home, matching their road win total from all of last season. Redd scored 20 points for Milwaukee, which had six players in double figures but lost its third straight game.
