Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Doug Collins hopes Jerry Stackhouse's combination of brilliant offense and incredible defense is a turning point for the Washington Wizards. Stackhouse scored six of his 33 points and made two big defensive plays in the final 40 seconds, leading the Wizards to a 98-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns. Washington led by 15 points several times in the third quarter before Phoenix tied it at 91-91 on a pair of free throws by Shawn Marion with 53 seconds remaining. But Stackhouse took over. With his team in danger of blowing a 15-point lead at home for the second straight game, Stackhouse hit a leaner in the lane for a 93-91 edge with 39 seconds left. He added four free throws in the closing moments. "He was brilliant," said Collins, the Wizards' coach. "He was absolutely brilliant. He was really our only guy that was attacking, and that's why we tried to go to him late because we felt like he would attack." Stackhouse also did it on the defensive end, rejecting Scott Williams' two-handed dunk attempt in the lane to preserve the 93-91 lead. It was his only block in 33 minutes. "That was incredible," Collins said. "That's the kind of play that builds confidence." Stackhouse was just 11-of-25 from the floor, but he hit all 10 of his free-throw attempts and had nine assists, helping the Wizards snap a three-game losing streak. Michael Jordan had five of his team's 12 turnovers, but he chipped in 19 points, helping Washington avoid another tramautic setback. "We hadn't made the plays down the stretch in the last two games," Jordan said. "Today was a big confidence boost and found a way to make it work." Stephon Marbury scored 29 points and Marion added 21 and 13 rebounds for the Suns, who finished a 1-4 Eastern Conference road trip with their sixth loss in eight games. Phoenix was just 12-of-24 from the free-throw line. "Sometimes free throws that are missed are momentum stoppers," coach Frank Johnson said. "But we missed them. What we need to do is get off this damn road trip." Despite playing for the fourth time in five days, the Suns fought back from a 15-point deficit as Marbury capped a 6-0 run with a drive to the basket to make it 66-57 with 2:20 left in the third quarter. The Wizards still had a 79-69 lead heading into the fourth, but Marion had six points during a 12-3 run that got the Suns within 82-81 with 6:03 remaining. Phoenix finally tied it with 53 seconds left when Marion hit a pair of free throws. He took over in the closing moments for the Suns, scoring four points and setting up Williams for a dunk in a five-possession span. But Stackhouse was even better. He drove around Williams at the top of the key and buried a leaner in the face of Joe Johnson to put the Wizards ahead for good with 39 seconds to play. "We are at a point now where everybody should be looking in the mirror and just saying there is more than they could be doing," Stackhouse said. "And I feel the same way." Stackhouse did all he could defensively, as well. He came from nowhere to block Williams' dunk attempt, putting his right hand in front of the rim to preserve a 93-91 lead. Williams, a fellow North Carolina alumnus, thought a foul should have been called when Stackhouse made contact with his body. "You guys know I always talk to the media after the games," Williams said. "But to save myself a little money, I'm not going to have any comment after tonight's ballgame. Not at all." After Jordan hit 1-of-2 free throws for a 96-93 lead with 19 seconds left, Stackhouse altered Marion's shot in the lane, ended up with the loose ball and hit two foul shots to finish the scoring. "The guys showed a lot of heart today," Jordan said. "They fought back, we held tight and made some big shots and played defense down the stretch."
