Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Eddie Jordan's current squad is doing significantly better than his previous one. Gilbert Arenas scored a season-high 30 points as the Washington Wizards held the hapless New Jersey Nets to a franchise record-low 20 baskets in a 95-68 victory. Antawn Jamison added 18 points and nine rebounds and Larry Hughes 15 and nine assists for the Wizards, who posted their fifth victory in six games and handed the Nets their 10th defeat in 11 contests. Jordan, who missed the Wizards' previous two games with a blood clot in his left leg, was the lead assistant with the Nets from 1999-2003, helping them twice reach the NBA Finals. They could have used his assistance in this one as they shot just 31 percent (20-of-64) from the field, breaking by one their record for fewest baskets in a game set at Indiana on January 23. The Nets also tied their franchise low with seven assists, and their 68 points were the third-fewest allowed by the Wizards in franchise history. "That's not the kind of performance we expect from ourselves," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "I don't know what to say. Obviously, we got what we deserved tonight." New Jersey, which attempted 45 free throws but made just 27, lost backup point guard Zoran Planinic to a broken left hand midway through the second quarter and rookie big man Nenad Krstic to an apparent right knee injury with under two minutes remaining. The Nets have been without injured - and disgruntled - All-Star guard Jason Kidd all season. Washington held just an 18-16 lead after one quarter but pushed the advantage to nine points at the break and opened a 71-56 cushion after three quarters. Arenas scored 14 points in the third period and had just two points in limited action in the final 12 minutes with the result not in doubt. "It was a different sort of game, a real tough game for us to get a hold of," Jordan said. "New Jersey has been playing a different style, very slow. They were dictating the tempo. Getting to the free-throw line hurt our rhythm offensively." Richard Jefferson, the Nets' leading scorer, missed all six of his shots and finished with just seven points as New Jersey failed to record its first winning streak of the season. Eric Williams scored 17 points and Travis Best added 16 as the only Nets in double figures. Hughes said Jordan got the team to concentrate on producing a solid defensive effort. "We're glad to have him back. It's good to see him back on the bench doing something that he loves to do," Hughes said. "We talked about getting our focus back on defense before the game, and I think we did a good job tonight." In addition to Jordan, the Wizards welcomed back forward Kwame Brown, who played for the first time this season after undergoing surgery August 3 to repair a fractured right foot. His first jumper of the season gave the Wizards a 57-42 lead with 8:28 remaining in the third quarter. A disappointment after being picked first overall in the 2001 draft, Brown opened the fourth quarter with back-to-back buckets. He finished with six points and two rebounds in 14 minutes before being ejected, along with New Jersey's Jason Collins, for an altercation with 6:48 left. "They acted way too quickly, kicking us both out like that," Collins said. "There was no reason for it."
