Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- In a game the Washington Wizards desperately needed, Tyronn Lue stepped up. Lue scored 10 of his season-high 21 points in the fourth quarter, including several rally-killing baskets, as the Wizards snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Portland Trail Blazers, 95-91. "I just wanted to go out and play aggressive," Lue said. "Coach (Doug Collins) told me to go out and play my game. If he gave me a chance to start, I just wanted to take advantage of it and just play aggressive, and that's what I did." "T's been struggling with a lot of personal problems," Collins said. "He's got a lot of family issues right now. He's one of our most sensitive, compassionate guys. I spoke with him the other day and I said the best thing you can do for your family right now is play great so when you call them on the phone you can have some good news for them. I was really happy the way he responded." Michael Jordan scored 25 points and Jerry Stackhouse added 24 for the Wizards, who moved within one-half game of Milwaukee for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Bucks lost at San Antonio. "We needed this win badly because it is easy to start losing confidence and I did not want our guys to do that," Collins said. "To get a win aginst a quality team like Portland ... we are still in the thick of things, and the longer we stay in the thick of things, good things can happen." Washington led throughout but saw an 11-point lead early in the fourth quarter slip to 80-78 on a free throw by Bonzi Wells with 4:54 left. "We knew they were going to make a run," Lue said. "They're a great team playing at home and they were going to make a run. (But) we were able to withstand that and keep our composure and win the game down the stretch." Lue countered with a jumper, and after Wells answered with two from the line, Lue made a finger roll and Stackhouse a fast-break layup for an 86-80 lead with 3:22 to play. "We came down and we kept running our stuff and we were getting good looks," Stackhouse said. "Lue made some big plays for us down the strectch and made some runs when things did break down. We got the ball in his hands and he made some plays. He was huge for us tonight." The Blazers got no closer than three points thereafter thanks to Lue, who added a jumper and two free throws in the final 90 seconds. "I was really proud of the team tonight," Collins said. "I thought we showed a lot of composure when we had to. This is one of the best crowds in the NBA and when they get revved up and that music starts playing, they really swarm defensively, and when we had to we made our shots." The Wizards, who snapped a three-game road losing streak, shot 51 percent (41-of-80) from the field as they improved to 1-2 on their tough six-game western road trip. "It was a fun game tonight," said Jordan, who shot 11-of-19. "When everybody is playing well, it is a fun game. When you struggle, it is not so fun." "He's the greatest player ever," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said of Jordan, who was playing in his final game at the Rose Garden and received cheers every time he scored. "I was privileged to be on the floor in his last game in Portland, (but) I didn't like seeing him go 11-of-19 from the floor. We needed to send him off from Portland a little differently." Washington blew a 14-point second-half lead in a loss to Golden State on Sunday. "In the last game, I think we played well until we got to the last stretch," Jordan said. "Tonight we just held in there." The Wizards jumped out to a 19-8 lead and took a 23-15 advantage into the second quarter. Washington led, 47-39, at the break and 71-62 entering the final 12 minutes. "I think we came out and got out of the box quick and established ourselves really early," Jordan said. "Jahidi (White) gave us a great presence in the middle and T-Lue played extremely well tonight." "They got off to a great start and we just seemed out of sync," Cheeks said. "We couldn't put it together. We made a run at the end of the game, but offensively and defensively we just couldn't get it going tonight." Wells contributed 20 points and 10 rebounds and Rasheed Wallace added 16 points for Portland, which fell one game behind Minnesota for fourth place in the Western Conference standings. The Blazers have two games in hand on the Timberwolves. "We need to find the rhythm we had before," Cheeks said. "We just haven't been in sync. (Washington) had a sense of urgency, they're fighting for a playoff spot, and we just seem like we're settling for the (No.) 4 and 5 spot." "We have to play one game at a time," Wells said. "We don't really worry about the standings. If we win we've got home-court advantage and that's the only thing we can think about." Portland, which lost for the fourth time in six games, did itself no favors at the free-throw line where it was just 13-of-22, including 8-of-14 in the fourth quarter. "We really were able to control the tempo," Collins said. "That was our whole key coming into here, because we knew the Blazers, when they get up and down the floor, they would run us off the court." "We have a tough assignment with Utah (on the road on Wednesday)," said Blazers guard Jeff McInnis, who scored 11 points off the bench. "They are playing good ball right now. We just have to come out and play. Whatever is going on with our team, we need to put it behind us and try to come out and win this game tomorrow."
