Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Juan Dixon has the green light as the first player off the bench for the Washington Wizards, the hottest team in the NBA. Dixon scored 13 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter and added three steals as the Wizards extended their season-high winning streak to seven games with a 108-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns, who have lost three in a row for the first time this season. "His defense was just as important. It got everybody going," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said of Dixon, who scored all his fourth-quarter points during a crucial stretch. "Knowing that he is contributing defensively makes him feel comfortable out there on the offensive end. "He is aggressive and he knows what we need. It is a comfort zone for him. He is the first guy coming off (the bench) and he has the green light." The Suns were forced to run a red light by playing without point guard Steve Nash, the NBA assists leader who suffered a bruised left thigh in Friday's loss at Indiana. Second-year guard Leandro Barbosa started in Nash's place and scored 15 points with no assists. Gilbert Arenas scored 10 of his 26 points in the final period as the Wizards stretched the league's longest current winning streak. Holding the league's best record at 31-6, the Suns sorely missed Nash, who averages 15.3 points and 10.9 assists per game. "Once your offense gets going a certain way with the best point guard in the league, it's kind of tough to change it," said Suns center Amare Stoudemire, who had 26 points and nine rebounds. "We tried to figure it out. We did pretty good in the second and third quarter, but in the fourth quarter, they came out strong. They put in a pretty good run and then closed the game out." After an 11-1 burst gave Phoenix its biggest lead at 72-62 with 5:39 to go in the third quarter, Washington used a 14-6 spurt sparked by Arenas' eight points to pull within 78-76 with 10:11 left in the fourth period. The Suns regained control and took a 90-82 lead before the Wizards went on an 18-3 run - including 16 consecutive points in a three-minute span - in which Dixon scored seven points, giving Washington a 100-93 lead. "It was our defense," Dixon said of the surge. "We had our small group out there running around and causing havoc on the defensive end. We were trying to turn turnovers into easy baskets, and that is what we were able to do. Hopefully, we can keep it up." Concerning his hot shooting hand, Dixon said he has been taking an extra 100-200 shots before games. "When I get the opportunity to play, I just try to make a difference," he said. "One of my goals going into this year was to be consistent and hopefully I can keep it going. I am playing with a lot of confidence when I am out there. I know my number is going to be called, so I prepare myself mentally to be ready to play. My pregame routine is working for me." Phoenix climbed within 104-101 with 15 seconds remaining, but Arenas sank a pair of free throws and Dixon made both his foul shots with eight seconds to play to seal the victory. "Hopefully, we can get better at managing the game when we are ahead," Jordan said. "We need to do that because when you are going down the stretch of a season or on the road that looms in front of us, you have to learn to manage leads." Larry Hughes, who jammed his right thumb in the fourth quarter and will be re-evaluated Sunday, had 22 points and a career high-tying 13 rebounds. Antawn Jamison added 17 points for the Wizards, who posted their sixth consecutive home victory. "We pulled it out again," Arenas said. "We aren't worried about the other team. It's about our 15 guys and coaches. We think we can win every night, every game, even when we're down double digits - no matter what." Quentin Richardson scored 25 points and Shawn Marion added 14 and 15 boards for the Suns, who have dropped five in a row at the MCI Center. "It was tough because we fought," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni added. "We were ahead for most of the game and our guys played hard. We just could not finish down the stretch. They hit some big shots. They are a good close-out team."
