Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- A decade of dominance for the Chicago Bulls has hit its low point.

Brent Barry missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer with two seconds remaining as the Chicago Bulls dropped a 93-91 decision to the Washington Wizards -- their sixth straight loss and longest skid of the 1990s.

The Bulls trailed 85-77 with just over seven minutes remaining but scored eight straight points, tying it on Dickey Simpkins' jumper with 2:58 left. Despite three ties in the final two minutes, Chicago never was able to grab the lead.

Barry's layup with 32 seconds left forced a 91-91 deadlock. But Mitch Richmond hit a six-footer from the right sideline with 17 seconds left to lift the Wizards to their second straight win after a three-game losing streak.

Chicago's six-game slide surpasses its five-game losing streak from February 26-March 6, 1994 as its longest this decade. The 1994 skid came with Michael Jordan in the midst of his first retirement.

Calbert Cheaney scored 17 points, Juwan Howard added 16 and Ben Wallace contributed a career-high 13 points for the Wizards, who went 1-3 on a road trip and were playing at home for the first time since February 6.

"One guy was key (Ben Wallace)," said Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff. "He did the dirty things that you need to win games. He was the key tonight. They made their shots and made their plays. We let them come back, which we cannot do."

"I think the bench came out and did what they should have," said Wallace, who also grabbed four rebounds in 34 minutes. "We made it happen. When we come off it creates a spark and sometimes that spark carries over to the starters. They're the ones who finished it in the end to win this one."

Barry scored 22 points and Toni Kukoc added 18 for Chicago, which had not dropped six straight games since April 6-16, 1989, when Jordan was in his fifth year and Scottie Pippen was in his second season.

"We got off to a great start but our turnovers hurt us," said Bulls coach Tim Floyd, who team committed 17 miscues. "We've made some progress and we're giving some great effort out there. I'm pleased that we're continuing to get better."

A five-foot jumper from the left side by Howard gave the Wizards an 85-77 advantage. But Barry drilled a 3-pointer, Ron Harper hit two free throws, Simpkins connected on one from the line and then tied it with a jumper.

Rod Strickland's 16-footer put the Wizards back on top before Harper answered with a jumper. Strickland hit another jump shot, but Harper connected on two from the line with 1:33 left. Once again it was Strickland, this time from 21 feet, giving Washington a 91-89 lead before Barry tied it for the fourth time in the quarter.

"We were struggling out there and they were very tough," said Strickland. "The bench came in and picked it up. We need to be more aggressive and hopefully we'll show that Sunday (at home against Boston)."

After Richmond hit what became the game-winning shot, the Bulls had a chance to steal the game when they found a wide-open Barry at the top of the key. But his 3-pointer rimmed out and Simpkins and Strickland fought for the loose ball. The whistle blew with three-tenths of a second left and the shorter Strickland won the jump to seal the game.

"This is something we have to build on," Barry said. "We started off playing some good ball, but towards the end we have to keep it up and step it up."

"You can't blame anybody but youself if you don't step up," added Strickland.

Tracy Murray contributed 13 points and Strickland had 12 with 11 assists for the Wizards, who shot 47 percent (40-of-85) and were 5-of-13 from 3-point range.

Harper netted 15 points and Randy Brown 10 for Chicago, which connected on 48 percent (32-of-67), including 7-of-14 from beyond the arc.

Howard grabbed seven rebounds and Harper and Mark Bryant each pulled down seven for the Bulls as the teams fought to a 36-36 statemate on the boards.

Chicago played well early and grabbed a 16-7 lead on Bryant's jumper with 6:04 left in the first quarter. But the Wizards scored the period's final 21 points and took a 28-16 advantage on two free throws by Strickland. Cheaney scored six points during the outburst.

The Bulls trailed 49-43 at halftime.
