Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Washington Wizards did not need a big scoring night from Gilbert Arenas to snap their season-high five-game losing streak. Arenas scored just eight points - all in the fourth quarter - but had a season-high 13 assists as the Wizards moved to the brink of clinching a playoff berth with a 119-112 triumph over the Milwaukee Bucks. "Gil managed the game very well; he was certainly a point guard tonight," said Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, who earned his 100th career victory. "That is 'Gilbertology,' as we call it." Arenas scored a career-high 44 points in Saturday's 112-106 home loss to Philadelphia, the opener of a five-game homestand. As he has done on several occasions throughout his career, he virtually refused to shoot, attempting just two shots before the final period. Averaging better than 25 points per game, Arenas was 2-of-9 from the field. He left the MCI Center without talking to the media. "That is his way of doing things," Jordan said. "I am trusting Gil more and more each and every day." Antawn Jamison scored 32 points and Larry Hughes added 23, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Wizards (42-35), who began the night tied with Boston and Indiana for the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference. "(Arenas) did a great job tonight," Jamison said. "He had 13 assists and he did a good job of getting everybody involved in the offense. Gilbert was a big reason why we played so well tonight. He knew he did not have to force his shot and he was the key to our success. He distributed the ball really well and he played some great defense. "He showed tonight why he is an All-Star. He has really grown up and matured as a player." Reserve Kwame Brown chipped in a season-high 17 points and Etan Thomas also had 17 for Washington. Both big men frequently were set up for dunks by Arenas, who appeared determined to bypass shooting opportunities. "(Arenas) wasn't really hot in the beginning and I think our defense had a little something to do with that," Milwaukee guard Michael Redd said. "At the same time, he was being more point guard-oriented tonight and just getting everybody else the ball. He had a great game regardless, without scoring the basketball." The lack of offense from Arenas did not hurt. Washington held a 31-26 edge after one quarter and pushed its lead to as many as 16 points before taking a 60-49 cushion into the break. "Etan Thomas had a couple of good post moves, but other than that, all their baskets came off penetrate-and-pitches," said Bucks forward Desmond Mason, who had 18 points and seven rebounds. "It wasn't really their big guys getting loose but breakdowns on penetrations. Arenas and those guys were just dropping it off to them for dunks." Milwaukee pulled within four points several times in the fourth quarter, including 110-106 on a 3-pointer by Redd with 1:51 to play. After Washington's Jared Jeffries split a pair of free throws, Washington's Marcus Fizer missed a contested jumper and Arenas fed Jamison with a court-length pass for an easy layup and a seven-point cushion with a minute to go. Washington easily outrebounded Milwaukee, 43-31, including a 19-10 edge in offensive boards, which led to a 24-12 advantage in second-chance points. "We didn't do a good enough job of dominating the boards like we should have," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "They really hurt us on the offensive boards. We gave them second possessions and they really capitalized on them." Redd scored 35 points to pace the Bucks, who dropped their 12th straight road game. "That's typical of our season: losing close games and not being able to finish them out," Redd said. "That's the title of our season, so it's frustrating."
