Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers could have used Ron Artest's tough defense on Michael Jordan. Jordan registered season highs with 41 points and 12 rebounds as the Washington Wizards outlasted the Pacers, 107-104 in double overtime. It was Jordan's first 40-point game since scoring 41 against Phoenix on January 26, 2002. The Wizards beat the Pacers for just the third time in the last 21 meetings. "He showed tonight that he's still got it," Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley said of Jordan, who played a season-high 53 minutes. "Michael never surprises me," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "I look down and see 53 minutes and that worries me, but had I taken him out tonight I probably would have been fired." Artest, a hawking defender who broke one of Jordan's ribs during an offseason workout in the summer of 2001, was serving the first of a three-game suspension for throwing a television monitor and TV camera following Indiana's loss at New York on Friday. Jordan snapped a 101-101 tie with a pair of free throws after Al Harrington was whistled for a flagrant foul for shoving him in the back with 3:05 to go in the second overtime. Neither team scored until Christian Laettner made two from the line with 57 seconds left to give the Wizards a four-point edge. Erick Strickland countered with a 3-pointer 13 seconds later, and after Jordan came up short on a jumper with 24 seconds left, the Pacers had a chance to take the lead. But Harrington lost a post pass from Strickland out of bounds, and Jerry Stackhouse nailed two free throws to make it 107-104 with 12 seconds to play. With eight seconds left, Reggie Miller missed a 3-pointer from the right corner. in Strickland tied up Tyronn Lue on the rebound and tipped the ensuing jump ball to Miller. But Miller, who has made a career out of late-game heroics, side-rimmed a potential game-tying 3-pointer while floating to his left, and the Wizards escaped with the win. "They were very good shots, very good looks," Miller said. "We had plenty of shots to win the game." "We had our opportunities to win it with Reggie's shot at the buzzer," Harrington said. "Sometimes they just don't go in." Larry Hughes scored 23 points and Stackhouse added 20 for the Wizards, who won for the fourth time in five games. "(Hughes') defense was great," Collins said. "We put him on Reggie Miller tonight and chased him around screens and Reggie went 3-for-11 and that's a big part of their attack. We were able to keep him quiet somewhat." Harrington contributed 33 points and Jermaine O'Neal 26 and 13 rebounds for Indiana, which fell to 1-2 on a four-game road trip. "Indiana's a great team," Collins said. "I didn't know if we were ever going to get Al Harrington stopped at all, but our guys fought through it and it was a great win." Indiana took a 95-93 lead on a fadeaway by O'Neal with 29 seconds to play in regulation, but the Wizards tied it on a layup by Hughes with 14 seconds remaining. After an Indiana timeout, Miller missed a jumper just before the buzzer, sending the game into overtime. In the first extra session, Harrington gave the Pacers a 99-97 edge on a layup with 37 seconds left, but Stackhouse tied it with a running jumper with 23 seconds to play. O'Neal missed a jumper with one second left, and the game went into a second overtime period. Washington jumped out to a 17-2 lead in the first five minutes and took a 31-22 advantage into the second quarter. But Harrington and O'Neal started taking over in the paint, and the Pacers evened the contest, 53-53, at the break. Harrington scored 17 points and O'Neal 13 in the opening half. The Wizards trailed, 62-55, before going on an 8-0 run midway through the third quarter. Neither team led by more than five points thereafter.
