Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Antawn Jamison and Larry Hughes added to the New Jersey Nets' home woes. Jamison scored 27 points and Hughes added 10 of his 22 in the fourth quarter as the Washington Wizards posted a 97-86 victory over the Nets, who lost all four games on their homestand. Washington led for most of the game, but New Jersey took the lead, 67-66, on a jumper by Travis Best with just over a minute to play in the third quarter. The Nets pushed the lead to 71-67 on a basket by Aaron Williams at the start of the fourth. New Jersey outscored Washington, 26-15, in the third. The Wizards have been outscored in the third period, 241-199, in their last eight games. "I don't want to say we let up," Jamison said. "It's just that our concentration is not there. We're not playing with the same intensity and when we go into halftime, we get too relaxed. We have to do a better job coming out in the third quarter, keeping the intensity up." But the Wizards countered with a 7-0 run to take the lead for good. Jarvis Hayes scored five of his 14 points during the burst, including a jumper that made it 74-71 with 10:21 to play. "We had an opportunity and once we took a four-point lead, they came right back and scored," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "They put that run together in the fourth quarter and we couldn't respond." The Nets kept it close until Hughes scored five points in 15 seconds to open an 87-79 lead. Hughes made a 3-pointer from the left sideline with 5:07 to play, then stole the in-bounds pass and converted a layup eight seconds later. "Larry's defense is generating his offensive flow," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "Our defense and the way we're scoring in the second half are going hand in hand." "In the fourth quarter, their pressure disrupted us," Frank said. "We had poor possessions and some untimely turnovers. They hit some shots and we were never able to get back." The Wizards, who entered the game allowing an NBA-worst 104.5 points per game, scored 20 points off 19 Nets turnovers and held an opponent to fewer than 90 points for the first time this season. "I think at first we weren't paying attention to the defense," Jamison said. "Now we're really focusing on it." "We have to stop turning the ball over," New Jersey forward Jason Collins said. "We've got to stay organized out there. We can't keep averaging 20 turnovers and expect to win a ball game." Jamison made the lead stand by scoring four points in the final two minutes. Richard Jefferson scored 22 points on 8-of-18 shooting for the Nets, who had five players score in double figures for the first time this season but still lost its fifth straight game. "Every loss is disheartening," said New Jersey center Alonzo Mourning, who scored 14 and grabbed seven rebounds. "I don't know what else to say. We just have to keep working to get a win and build on it." It was the first win against his former team for Jordan, who was the Nets' assistant coach from 1999-2003. New Jersey won all four matchups against Washington last season. "It's always different and emotional when I come here because of various reasons," Jordan said. "Right now for us, the Wizards are 5-4 and we're moving uptown."
