Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan got them there, but the Washington Wizards could not finish.

Jerry Stackhouse scored 24 points and grabbed a key rebound in the final seconds and Chucky Atkins added 20 points as the Detroit Pistons pushed their winning streak to three games with an 89-86 triumph over the Wizards.

Jordan had eight points in a 12-0 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters and got Washington even at 76-76. He finished with 32 points, but when the Wizards had the ball looking to tie in the waning seconds, it was Chris Whitney and Hubert Davis who took shots.

Davis and Whitney were a combined 5-of-14 from the field.

"I guess that was my fault," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "I thought the guys knew what we wanted to do on that last play, but it looked like there was some confusion. Anytime there is confusion, then that means that I didn't do a good job in the huddle."

A pair of free throws by Atkins with 56 seconds to go gave Detroit a 76-64 lead, but Tyronn Lue sank an 18-footer to ignite a 12-0 run. Jordan ran off six straight points before capping the spurt and tying it with a 20-footer with 10:05 remaining.

The game was still tied, 84-84, with 84 seconds to go when Jordan put the Wizards ahead with two free throws. But Cliff Robinson came alive, hitting a nine-footer with 68 seconds left.

After Jordan missed with 44 seconds remaining, Robinson buried a 20-footer over Popeye Jones to give the Pistons the lead for good. Washington called timeout, but Whitney and Davis missed in the final five seconds.

On Davis' miss, Stackhouse grabbed the rebound and got the ball to Atkins, who was fouled. He made 1-of-2 free throws with three-tenths of a second left to seal the victory.

"You have to give Clifford Robinson a lot of credit, he made two great shots," Collins said.

"He has come up big in a lot of games," Detroit coach Rick Carlisle added. "If we can play through him, we find that good things happen. He really delivered it down the stretch."

The Pistons were able to pull out the victory despite shooting just 29 percent (5-of-17) from the field in the final quarter.

Jordan, who finished 13-of-30 from the field, had 14 points in the final 12 minutes. Jones added a season-high 17 for Washington, which had won two in a row.

"In the second half, I was able to find a rhythm in the fourth quarter, definitely," Jordan said.

The teams played to a 49-49 draw after 24 minutes, but the Pistons offset 60 percent (21-of-35) shooting by committing 10 turnovers. Stackhouse had 15 points in the first half.

"We made plays when we had to and we got stops when we had to," Stackhouse said. "That is what it's about going on the road."

Detroit shot 50 percent (37-of-74) overall but was just 5-of-22 from 3-point range and got outrebounded, 45-36. At 22-20, the Pistons are two games over .500 for the first time since December 30.

"This was a grind-out, gut-check game," Carlisle said.
