Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan wasn't even picking on the Cleveland Cavaliers the last time they were swept in a season series by the Washington Wizards. In his final game against the team that he has tortured throughout his illustrious career, Jordan scored 26 points as the Wizards posted a critical 100-91 victory over the Cavaliers. Sparked by Jordan, who also grabbed 10 rebounds, the Wizards swept a season series from the Cavaliers for the first time since 1978-79. Jordan was a sophomore in high school at that time. Jordan entered the NBA in 1984 with the Chicago Bulls and always has had his way with the Cavs. As a member of the Bulls, Jordan helped eliminate the Cavs from the playoffs four times, including his famous shot at the buzzer in Game Five in 1988. He also scored a career-high 69 points against Cleveland on March 28, 1990. Jordan had his way with the Cavs one last time, making 10-of-19 shots and converting all five free throws in 46 minutes. With seven seconds remaining, he left to a standing ovation from the second sellout crowd of the season at Gund Arena. "At the end of the day, I like to think that they recognized that I played hard every time I played," Jordan said. "Not just here, but everywhere." "The game was over and I went down and told Keith (Cavs coach Keith Smart), the game was over but I wanted to take a 20-second timeout to get (Michael Jordan) out of the game," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "I wanted these Cleveland people, as much as he's broken their hearts, to say 'Thank you.'" Jerry Stackhouse and Tyronn Lue each added 18 points for the Wizards (36-41), who pulled within 1 1/2 games of Milwaukee for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot with five games left. Zydrunas Ilgauskas netted 23 points and rookie Carlos Boozer had 16 and 14 rebounds for Cleveland, which (15-62), which needs one win its last five games to avoid the worst record in franchise history. Cleveland went 15-67 in 1971 and 1982. Boozer also enjoyed the extra intensity in the crowd with Jordan in town. "It was a great atmosphere to be part of," Boozer said. "We had a ton of fans, a sellout crowd. It was (great) to see everybody out there supporting us and seeing Mike, too." Ricky Davis fell a rebound shy of triple-double for the Cavs, collecting 18 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds while playing all 48 minutes. Cleveland has lost six of its last seven games. Despite owing the NBA's worst record, the Cavaliers were competitive the entire night and held a 59-56 lead with 8:33 left in the third quarter following a dunk by Darius Miles. The Cavs were still ahead by one with just over four minutes left in quarter when Christian Laettner scored the Wizards' next eight points, giving Washington the lead for good. Jordan brought a roar from the crowd when he ended the period with a 3-pointer from the left side to give Washington a 76-71 lead. "I'm going to do everything to keep this team moving in the right direction," Jordan said. "The second half we needed something. We needed a lift in the second half and the guys picked it up from there." "We were up one (at halftime) and a little upset with ourselves," Laettner said. "We didn't want to lose to Cleveland when we are chasing the playoffs. We wanted to come out and play hard and better, and we did that." Laettner had a solid all-around game with 16 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. Jordan made a 17-footer to start the fourth quarter, then got some unexpected help from rookie Juan Dixon and Bobby Simmons, who combined to scored the Wizards' next eight points for their biggest lead at 86-77 with 7:53 to go. Simmons provided a spark off the bench with 11 points and five rebounds in 28 minutes. Dixon finished with five points but came up big in the clutch. "The last two games, with Bobby out there, we have five guys on the floor who have to be guarded," Collins said. Washington also was clutch at the free throw line, where it went 27-of-28. The Wizards also converted 23 turnovers by the Cavs into 23 points. Stackhouse did most of his damage in the first half as he scored 14 points, helping the Wizards to a 52-51 lead. Ilgauskas and Davis each had 12 points before the break for Cleveland.
