Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- In a game symbolic of Michael Jordan's final season, he and the Washington Wizards once again came up just short. Ira Newble scored a career-high 21 points, including a follow dunk with eight seconds left, and Jordan missed a jumper with just over one second to play as the Atlanta Hawks edged the Wizards, 101-100, for their third straight victory. The Wizards were eliminated from playoff contention Friday and appeared lethargic for most of the contest. But after falling behind, 93-81, on a 3-pointer by Dion Glover with 6:19 left, Washington stormed back, taking a 100-99 lead on a jumper by Jordan with 17 seconds remaining. "Last night was a huge letdown in terms of knowing that we can't get into the postseson, but I was happy because our guys fought back," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. As Jason Terry attempted a jumper from near the foul line, nobody blocked out Newble, who slammed home the miss to silence the MCI Center crowd. "The play was flattened out to get a pick-and-roll," Newble said. "(Terry) was either to find Shareef (Abdur-Rahim) or shoot the jump shot. I knew he was going to shoot it. When he shot it, I knew I was going to crash the boards, and the ball came right to me and I dunked it in." Following a timeout, Jordan's jumper from just inside the top of the arc hit the left side of the rim, and he could not snag the rebound before the buzzer. "The second one, I had a decent look, I just didn't feel comfortable shooting the ball," Jordan said. Obviously, with virtually no time on the clock, I had to put it up, period." "He did get a better look on the second shot than he did the first one," Newble said. "The first one, I was all over him (and) he just hit a tough fadeaway. The second one, I was on him, but not as tight, and he just missed the shot." Collins felt the blame for Jordan's missed shot should fall on his shoulders. "On the last play of the game, when we drew it up, I forgot to tell (rookie guard Juan Dixon) to clear," Collins said. "He should have cleared through to give Michael a little bit of a lane, so they built a wall against him. That was my fault. I should have told Juan to give him more of a lane." Terry added 21 points and Glover and Abdur-Rahim 16 apiece for the Hawks, who made half their 82 shots. Atlanta was missing forward Glenn Robinson, who did not accompany the team due to a strained right Achilles tendon. "When I took over, we started off 3-12, and it was a shaky start," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "Since then we are a couple games over .500. I think the progress we have made the last couple of months is encouraging." Newble, Terry and Glover - who was ejected with 1:44 left for clotheslining Larry Hughes on a fast-break layup attempt - each nailed three 3-pointers for the Hawks, who went 9-of-16 from the arc. The Wizards missed all five of their 3-pointers. Christian Laettner contributed 18 points and 11 rebounds, Jordan scored 17 points and Hughes 16 for the Wizards, who played without guard Jerry Stackhouse (right knee tendinitis) for a second straight contest. "Christian has been tremendous this year," Collins said. "Rebounding, defending, making the open shot, being in the game, practicing and working with our younger players, he has had a terrific year. I'm really proud of Christian." For the second straight home game, the Wizards wore retro Washington Bullets jerseys to honor the 25th anniversary of their 1978 championship team. Atlanta, which jumped out to an 8-2 lead, took a 29-21 edge into the second quarter and a 52-46 advantage into the break. Washington opened up the second half on a 16-4 run and held a 72-69 lead before Atlanta scored the final nine points of the quarter to take a six-point edge into the final 12 minutes. "We just came up short in the third quarter," said Dixon, a rookie. "We're not that good defensively when all of our young guys are on the court. Hopefully we can learn from this year and be successfull next year." Jordan's final home game will be against New York on Monday. He concludes his legendary career at Philadelphia two nights later. "I hope our guys will dig in and win the last one for our fans," Collins said. "I'd like to win Michael's last home game here. I think our guys are used to it. I think they've seen Michael be honored throughout the year, so I don't think that will change anything."
