Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Antawn Jamison's late 3-pointer topped a stellar long-range shooting performance for the Washington Wizards. Jamison hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 45 seconds remaining and fellow All-Star Gilbert Arenas scored 35 points as the Wizards captured their fourth straight win, a 94-91 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. "No matter how I play for the (first) 47 minutes, that last minute if you need me I'm going to get it done," said Jamison, who scored just 14 points prior to his clutch 3-pointer. "It's just the confidence we have as a team. I was due for one and we got a big stop after that." Sparked by 5-of-10 3-point shooting by Arenas, the Wizards made seven shots from the arc en route to improve to 13-5 in games decided by five points or less. Arenas eclipsed 30 points for the ninth time in 13 games. "He (Arenas) is playing his game," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "He is one of the best guards in the league right now. He is special." After the Clippers pounded the offensive glass for multiple second chances on two straight possessions to turn a five-point deficit into a 90-90 tie with 59 seconds remaining, Jamison calmly responded with his only 3-pointer. "I thought our effort was good," Los Angeles coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We were having a hard time dealing with Arenas, so we switched to zone. Antawn stepped up and knocked down a big three from the top." Los Angeles' Bobby Simmons got fouled inside attempting to answer but the 87 percent foul shooter split the free throws to make it 93-91 with 30 seconds left. Despite Washington having the ball and a two-point lead, the outcome wasn't decided until the final seconds. Trying to seal the Wizards' fifth consecutive win over the Clippers, Arenas missed a 3-pointer with five seconds left, but Washington retained possession when Los Angeles guard Rick Brunson fell out of bounds trying to corral the rebound. Dunleavy believed Brunson was pushed and argued the call enough to get ejected. "What I saw was (Wizards forward Etan) Thomas pushing (Brunson)," Dunleavy said. "I thought (Thomas) tripped him. I thought his foot got tripped and he went down. That's what I saw ... I thought he got chopped up. It was a big play. ... The videotape doesn't lie. Maybe tonight I'm wrong; we'll see." Brunson, who registered 13 assists off the bench, echoed his coach's comments. "I thought I got pushed," Brunson said. "Those are crucial calls. We're not the type of team that can erase mistakes like that and we need those calls. I don't know what (the referee) saw, I know what I felt. I just don't fall on the ground for nothing. Obviously, (the referee) felt there wasn't a foul." Jamison scored 17 points and Arenas added nine assists and five steals. "It's not always pretty, but the good teams find a way to win close games in the end," Jamison said. Simmons, in his first visit to the MCI Center since playing for the Wizards in the 2002-2003 season, scored 24 points. Corey Maggette scored 20 points and Elton Brand added 15 and 12 rebounds and for Los Angeles, which fell to 1-4 on a nine-game road swing.
