Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Washington Wizards love living on the edge. On the verge of a loss to the undermanned Charlotte Bobcats, the Wizards scrambled down the stretch for a 106-104 victory as Antawn Jamison banked in a runner with 1.3 seconds left. Larry Hughes scored 28 points, Gilbert Arenas added 27 and Jamison 26 with 13 rebounds for the playoff-bound Wizards (45-35), who improved to a staggering 17-6 in games decided by three points or less or in overtime. "It's almost like the basketball Gods were looking out after us," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. Washington has won seven of its last eight one-possession games but looked like it was going to lose this one. Expansion Charlotte, playing without injured big men Emeka Okafor and Primoz Brezec, led by as many as 11 points and still held a 104-100 advantage on a jumper by Keith Bogans with 1:34 to go. The Wizards forced a turnover that led to a breakaway dunk by Hughes that halved the margin with 1:10 left. After another giveaway, Arenas missed a 3-pointer but atoned with a driving layup, drawing a foul. His missed free throw left the score tied with 27 seconds left. Charlotte's Brevin Knight missed a jumper. Instead of calling timeout, Hughes raced upcourt and had the ball poked away from behind - right into the hands of Jamison, who threw in the game-winner. Knight missed a desperation 55-footer at the horn as Charlotte (17-63) dropped its second straight contest. "It's a done deal, but the guys in that locker room deserved better than they got," said Bobcats coach Bernie Bickerstaff, who felt Knight was fouled on the penultimate possession. "They played their hearts out. It's basically just a lack of respect (from the referees)." The Wizards won their fourth straight game and kept the pressure on Chicago (46-34) in the race for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. "We weren't worried at all," Hughes said. "We were having fun, really. There were lots on the line. We had an opportunity to move up and stay aggressive, but we like to have fun. It was a fun game with a lot of back and forth. Then we needed to get some stops and not turn the ball over and win the game." Rap star Nelly, a part owner of the Bobcats, sat baseline and yelled "Don't!" almost every time a Wizard shot a free throw. "He got me," Jamison said after missing the second of two free throws with 3:36 left and the Wizards trailing, 98-95. "Yeah, that's my man," said Hughes, who knows Nelly from their hometown of St. Louis. "He's rooting for his organization, but he still had a St. Louis hat on, so we had ties over on this side. I was the guy he called to find out how many tickets he could get." Matt Carroll scored a career-high 22 points on 6-of-10 shooting for the Bobcats, who played without injured primary big men Emeka Okafor and Primoz Brezec. Bogans added 19 points for Charlotte, which had six players in double figures. "I got some very good open looks today and was able to get to the free-throw line and hit my free throws, said Carroll, who was 6-of-10 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line. "I like playing at this arena. Before I got to the NBA, I was 6-0 in the MCI Center (in college)." While the Wizards excel in close games, the Bobcats have lost eight contests in the waning seconds. "It's tough to swallow because you try so hard to win a game and you think you have it with a minute to go," Carroll said. "One thing it's taught us is the game is never over until there's no time on the clock. Our goal was to knock a couple teams off in the playoff run and we came close."
