Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan's second start of the season had a much better finish than the first. Jordan scored 25 points as the Washington Wizards snapped a season-high six-game losing streak with an easy 103-78 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. "I told our coaches sitting on the bench, I will just be glad when this game ends," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "This league is a funny thing; when you're winning, you don't take the time to enjoy it. When you're losing, you don't think you're going to win again." After the Wizards (7-10) had lost five in a row to negate the franchise's best 10-game start in 27 years, Jordan and Collins agreed to increase Jordan's minutes by moving him into the starting lineup. In his first start Saturday against Philadelphia, Jordan scored 16 points but had just four after halftime and committed a costly turnover on the game's final possession, leading to a 95-94 loss. Jordan bounced back to make 9-of-20 shots and pull down seven rebounds in 30 minutes. He watched the fourth quarter from the bench as Washington opened a 24-point lead in the third quarter. "Hopefully we can keep throwing those young kids in there when we need them and hopefully they will respond," Jordan said. "They were not responding early on with them starting. We just had to shake up the lineup and tonight it looked good. The last couple of games it looked good and hopefully we can build on that." Bryon Russell scored 16 points and fellow reserve Etan Thomas added 14 - both season highs - for the Wizards, who held a 54-40 rebounding advantage. "Tonight was a night where we needed someone to step up other than our starters," Russell said. "I think in order for us to win, we need to have more than our starters scoring." Tim Thomas scored 17 points for the Bucks, who have lost four straight road games. Milwaukee played without All-Star guard Ray Allen and reserve forward Toni Kukoc, both of whom are nursing injuries. "With our injuries, there was a thin line to be successful," Bucks coach George Karl said. The Wizards held a 24-23 lead after one quarter and used an 11-2 run at the outset of the second period to build a cushion. Jordan scored five points in the burst and Russell four, including a basket that made it 35-25 with 9:37 remaining. Jordan scored 15 points in the period, including a jumper that gave Washington a 54-36 lead with 1:24 left. "You have to challenge a guy like that," Bucks guard Sam Cassell said. "If you don't challenge him, he will eat you alive, and that is what he did today." A jumper by Cassell cut the deficit to 61-49 with 8:29 left in the third quarter, but the Bucks got no closer. The Wizards responded with a 16-4 surge capped by a dunk by Brendan Haywood for a 77-53 lead with 2:38 to go. Washington led by as many as 27 points in the final period. Larry Hughes had 13 points and eight rebounds and Jerry Stackhouse added 12 and seven for the Wizards, who shot 46 percent (38-of-82) from the field and held the Bucks to 37 percent (31-of-83). "To lose six straight like we did, it doesn't help us," Hughes said. "The win tonight makes us feel like we can really start something positive here. We have a chance to build on this one." Michael Redd scored 13 points and rookie Marcus Haislip added a season-high 12 for Milwaukee.
