Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- A long shot by Gilbert Arenas hurt the Philadelphia 76ers' long shot of making the playoffs. Arenas banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving the Washington Wizards an 83-80 victory over the 76ers, whose five-year postseason run is nearing an end. The game was tied, 80-80, when the Sixers won a jump ball with 12 seconds remaining. Rookie Willie Green raced upcourt but rushed a running banker that was rebounded by Arenas, who called timeout with 5.1 seconds left. The Wizards inbounded to Arenas, who pulled up in front of Eric Snow above the top of the arc and fired a 25-footer off the backboard that rattled in at the horn, silencing the Wachovia Center crowd of 19,192. "I was going to shoot a three," said Arenas, who was 5-of-11 from the arc. "I was feeling it. When they called the five-second (violation on the previous possession), I shot the three and it went in. So I thought I'd go back-to-back." "I had contested the shot," Snow said. "I turned around and by the time I turned around, it was banking off the backboard." Arenas, who scored 12 of his 22 points in the final six minutes, took off his jersey and threw it into the crowd as he left the court. He added nine assists. "With four seconds (remaining), he's the man," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "Good players make good coaches, and he made me a good coach tonight." Philadelphia (33-46), which has not missed the playoffs since 1998, dropped 2 1/2 games behind Boston with three to play in the race for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. "This game hurt, but we put ourselves in a situation where we had to win games, and, unfortunately, we weren't able to pull it out tonight," said Snow, one of three players who has been part of all five playoff teams. "There is still a chance. We have to win all our games and (Boston has) to lose all their games. We aren't really out, but with each loss, our chances severely decrease." "It's tough with three games left. It's real tough," said guard Aaron McKie, who also has been part of every playoff run. "Our goal coming into this one was to go undefeated, 4-0 from this point on. I guess that's out the window." The Sixers trailed, 65-59, entering the fourth quarter but took a 71-69 lead with 6:45 to play after six straight points by Green, who scored 15 off the bench. Arenas had a jumper and two 3-pointers to give the Wizards a 79-77 lead with 2:47 left. "This game could have gone either way," Jordan said. "The bottom line was Gilbert making plays at the end." After a jumper by Green tied it, Arenas and Kenny Thomas traded free throws, setting up Green's miss and Arenas' game-winner. Thomas had 24 points and nine rebounds. "I think (Green) got hit, but it was away from the basket," Sixers coach Chris Ford said. "I don't know if any official would call that. Hopefully, Willie will learn from that and be a little bit more aggressive." Former Sixer Larry Hughes scored 19 points for Washington, which opened an 11-point lead late in the second quarter before missing 11 straight shots. A 19-4 run by the Sixers carried into the second half and provided a 47-43 lead before the Wizards regrouped behind Hughes, who scored 11 points in the period.
