GAME RECAP

Chris Webber had 28 points and 12 rebounds, capping his second straight big game with a tip-in at the buzzer that gave the Washington Wizards a 94-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

The Wizards, who snapped a three-game road losing streak and won for the first time in Toronto, took possession with 14 seconds to go after a turnover by Raptors center Oliver Miller lost a pass underneath his own basket. Following a timeout, Rod Strickland took the inbounds pass and drove to the lane against Damon Stoudamire.

"Rod had a good look at it," Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "We wanted the ball in his hands. We wanted to go with four seconds on the clock, because they would have to commit to him."

Strickland stopped for an off-balance seven-footer and missed. But Webber, who scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, was there for the tip-in just before the horn as the Raptors lost at home on a follow shot at the buzzer for the second time this season.

"It was my first winning shot ever and I think we were just generally excited," Webber said. "I never had one in high school, college or even the playground.

"We called the play for Rod. It was a good shot. It just went in and out. And we were just supposed to crash the boards."

Strickland scored 18 points and Juwan Howard added 15, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Wizards, who had lost their first four visits to Toronto. Webber had 24 points and a season-high 19 rebounds Friday in a 20-point win over Charlotte.

"Hopefully, we have shaken the jinx here," Bickerstaff said.

"We deserved to win when something like that happens," Howard said. "With Oliver missing the pass that Damon threw to him, things happen for a reason. I say we were supposed to win this ballgame. They've always had opur number when we've come in here, but tonight was different. Now we know we can win here."

Stoudamire had 18 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and Marcus Camby added 18 points for Toronto, which had snapped a 10-game home losing streak on Friday and came up just short in a bid for its first two-game winning streak of the season. On November 24th, the Raptors lost 91-90 to Portland when Rasheed Wallace tipped in a miss at the buzzer.

"I thought we were going to win," Stoudamire said. "Once again, another close game that we lost. I know that he (Miller) can catch. Nine times out of 10, it's a bucket. He's competitive. There's nothing you can say to him."

The Wizards squandered a 12-point second-quarter lead and the fourth quarter was tight throughout. A jumper by Strickland and a dunk by Webber gave Washington a 90-86 lead with 3:18 to play but Toronto answered with layups by Doug Christie and Camby for a 90-90 tie with 2:16 remaining. Strickland and Camby traded jumpers and it was tied again with 53 seconds to go.

A basket by Ledell Eackles capped a 10-2 spurt that boosted the Wizards' lead to 39-28 with 8:34 left in the second quarter. A dunk by John Wallace cut the deficit to single digits before a three-point play by Webber gave Washington its largest lead at 42-30 with 7:13 remaining.

But the Raptors scored 10 of the next 12 points to get back in it. A layup by Walt Williams closed the margin to 44-40 with 4:09 left and Toronto trailed 52-49 at halftime.

Stoudamire scored 10 points in the third quarter, which ended in a 70-70 tie.

Calbert Cheaney scored 13 points and Strickland had seven boards and six assists for the Wizards, who shot 47 percent (39-of-83) from the field and held a 44-34 rebounding advantage.

"They've had injuries and can't get any continuity," Bickerstaff said. "They have talent and they're a team of the future and we asked our guys to respect them."

Williams and Wallace scored 15 points apiece and Christie added 11 for the Raptors, who shot 49 percent (39-of-79) and attempted just 11 free throws, making 10.

"It was definitely competitive tonight and last night," Raptors coach Darrell Walker said.

"We've been working on our execution more and people are starting to notice results," Stoudamire said. "We're not as bad as our record indicates."

Washington, which was without starting center Terry Davis, was 12-of-21 from the line. Davis left Friday's game with a sore left Achilles' tendon and also will miss Monday's contest at Milwaukee.

Toronto still holds a 5-4 edge in the all-time series against the Wizards, one of just three teams against whom it has a winning record.
