Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan might have gotten the best of the Utah Jazz again if not for the emergence of Quincy Lewis.

Lewis scored a career-high 18 points and made two key baskets down the stretch as the Jazz held on for a 101-92 victory over the Washington Wizards, who wasted a season-high 44 points from Jordan.

Jordan was facing Utah for the first time since nailing the game-winning jumper in Game Six of the 1998 NBA Finals. He made 17-of-33 shots, marking the first time he shot better than 50 percent this season.

"Initially I felt I could get what I wanted," said Jordan, who tied Denver's Nick Van Exel and Orlando's Tracy McGrady for the NBA season high in points. "I just tried to get precise if they were trying to double-team me. If they didn't, then I just used my ability to score."

Jordan converted two three-point plays during a 12-2 run in the fourth quarter and tied it, 87-87, on a jumper with 5:50 left. The teams traded baskets before Lewis -- who was not in the NBA during Jordan's last stint -- drained consecutive baskets 46 seconds apart to put Utah ahead for good.

"I'm just trying to fit in with the offense and do what I can," said Lewis, who also had the task of guarding Jordan at times. "Michael is tough and I just tried to match his energy, offensively and defensively."

"Quincy has been our most consistent player doing the right thing," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "He deserved the minutes he's been playing."

Karl Malone had 30 points and 12 rebounds and Donyell Marshall added 28 for Utah, which rebounded from Wednesday's 32-point loss at Atlanta and won its sixth straight meeting with Wahington.

"We're just trying to work ourselves out of tough times. And we're going to if we're good enough," said Sloan, who said his team "quit" in Wednesday's loss.

John Stockton scored eight points and dished out a season-high 17 assists for the Jazz.

"Its a great win for us, Mike had it going, kind of where he left off," he said. "But it's a good win and we'll take it."

Jordan accounted for nearly half of Washington's offense. Richard Hamilton was the only other Wizard in double figures with 14 points but made just 4-of-15 shots.

The Wizards have lost six in a row and are 1-4 at the MCI Center.

Washington had a 42-33 lead with 4:13 left in the second quarter before the Jazz went on a 15-7 run. Marshall scored seven during the run and Jordan accounted for all of the Wizards' points. His three-point play with eight seconds left gave the Wizards a 49-48 halftime lead.

But Malone and Marshall each scored four points as Utah opened the second half on an 8-0 surge. Marshall collected 10 points in the period and the Jazz had their biggest lead, 77-67, entering the final 12 minutes.

"Our thing is we play 36 minutes game," Washington coach Doug Collins said. "If you go back to all the gamed we've lost, it's been one killer quarter. I don't know what it is, we just get disjointed offensively."

Utah shot 52 percent (40-of-77) and grabbed 20 offensive rebounds in a complete turnaround from Wednesday's embarrassment. The Jazz also outscored Washington in the paint, 52-22, led by Malone and Marshall.

"When you have people like John and Karl, they're going to get you the ball at the right spot and then it's easier from there," Marshall said. "We've got to start somewhere and get back to winning some ballgames. This was a step for us."
