Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Gilbert Arenas' big second half finished a dismal road trip for the Utah Jazz. Arenas scored all 22 of his points in the final two quarters, including four clutch free throws in the last 30 seconds, as the Washington Wizards posted a 96-95 victory over the reeling Jazz, who lost their ninth straight game. Utah appeared to be in position to salvage the finale of its five-game swing when Howard Eisley and Raja Bell hit consecutive baskets to provide a 93-92 lead with 43 seconds remaining. Arenas, hampered by foul trouble in the first half, was able to draw a foul on the other end and hit the ensuing free throws to put the Wizards back in front before Bell nailed another jumper to make it 95-94 with 17 seconds left. Washington once again turned to Arenas, who calmly hit a pair from the line after drawing Bell's sixth foul with 2.3 seconds to go. "Usually you are supposed to go a little earlier so if you miss, you can get the rebound," Arenas said. "But I knew that they weren't going to bring the help defense. I just tried to get to the rim, or at least get fouled with one or two seconds left, and I got the foul." On the Jazz's final possession, Andrei Kirilenko inbounded to Howard Eisley, who badly missed a 14-footer at the buzzer, keeping Utah coach Jerry Sloan one win shy of tying Red Auerbach for sixth place on the all-time list. "It's tough to lose this game because we were up at one point," Utah center Mehmet Okur said. "They hit two free throws, then we had two seconds to win the game, but it is tough because I don't know how many games we have lost like that." Okur committed four of the Jazz's 18 turnovers, including three on consecutive consecutive possessions late in the game. After the third - a bad pass with 2:42 left - Sloan benched Okur in favor of Ben Handlogten. "We didn't give ourselves a chance," Sloan said. "Those are the things that are critical for us because we are out on the road and we are going to have a tough time anyway. It is important for us to hang on to the ball. If not, you don't deserve it." Utah took advantage of Arenas' struggles to open a double-digit lead in the second quarter. Kirilenko and Gordan Giricek combined for 13 points in a 15-0 run that gave the Jazz a 37-25 advantage with 6:48 to play in the half. "We had our struggles in the first half," reserve guard Steve Blake said. "We weren't getting stops, and we struggled on offense a little bit. But we kept together in the second half and got it done as a team." During the spurt, Arenas missed three shots, turned the ball over twice and committed three fouls, which forced the All-Star to the bench until the third period. "Tonight probably was not one of those nights to just shoot three or four shots in the first half, but we pulled the win out," Arenas said. Kirilenko, who scored 15 of his 28 points in the second quarter, capped the half with a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send Utah into the locker room with a 48-40 edge. Larry Hughes scored nine of his 21 points in the third period, when the Wizards shot 56 percent (10-of-18) and drew within 70-68 entering the fourth quarter. Blake scored all 15 of his points on 3-pointers for Washington, which shot 50 percent (9-of-18) from the arc. "I was just trying to be solid out there, play good solid defense and knock down those open shots," Blake said. "We have some great scorers on this team, and because of that we know that they're going to get us some open looks. I have a responsibility to make those shots."
