Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Brendan Haywood and the Washington Wizards made the most of their second chances. Haywood turned his team's 27th offensive rebound into the go-ahead three-point play with 7.1 seconds left and the Wizards held on for a 106-104 victory over the hot-shooting New York Knicks. The Wizards trailed for most of the second half before putting together a 10-0 run for a 99-97 lead with 3:54 to go. The Knicks regained the lead at 104-101 on a 3-pointer by Tim Thomas with 1:37 left. Antawn Jamison, who scored 25 points and matched his career-high with seven assists, made a leaner in the lane. Haywood missed two free throws following an offensive rebound with 55 seconds remaining but cashed in on a miss by Gilbert Arenas as he scored, drew a foul and made the free throw. "I was down on myself for a quick 10 seconds and I realized I had to get my head out of the clouds and get ready to play because these things always seem to have a way of coming back to haunt you," Haywood said. "I was ready when the opportunity came back my way." Washington scored 24 second-chance points as it tied a league season-high for offensive rebounds this season. It nearly matched New York's 29 defensive boards. "A lot of it is just hard work and determination," said Haywood, who had nine of his 14 rebounds on the offensive end. "Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes drive and put so much pressure on the defense that big men have a choice to go block their shots or box me out, or box Antawn out or box Jared (Jeffries) out. When they don't box us out, we get to the glass." "They had 27 offensive rebounds. That's sickening," said Knicks center Nazr Mohammed, who had 11 rebounds. "As far as being the big man on this team, I hate when we give up one offensive rebound. They did a great job of tipping balls and there were a lot of long rebounds. They kept balls alive." The Knicks had a pair of chances to tie the game, but Mohammed missed a baseline jumper and Kurt Thomas missed a short follow shot. "Besides an open layup, you can't ask for a better shot," Mohammed said. "I got a wide open shot with a foot in the paint. Kurt got the offensive rebound and he got a shot. You can't really ask for more, we got two good looks at it." Jamison had 13 boards, eight on the offensive glass. Larry Hughes had 18 points and nine assists for the Wizards, who have won eight of their last 10 games. "(Hughes) really looked out for his teammates and made great feeds and reads and when the time came, he scored," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "He played great defense." Allan Houston returned for the Knicks after missing the first five weeks of the season recovering from a left knee injury. He scored eight points in 19 minutes. "When I hit my first shot, that helped me a lot," he said. "I just wanted to contribute. My wind was fine. As it goes on, I'll get a little more comfortable. But for the first time out, I was a little more comfortable than I thought I would be." "Considering it was his first game back in quite some while, I was very pleased," Knicks coach Lenny Wilkins said. "The big thing was to have it be a good experience for him and not have him get banged up so that next time when he goes out he'll be even more comfortable." Despite allowing New York to shoot 63 percent (27-of-43) from the field in the first half, Washington ended a five-game slide in the series. "I love our character," Jamison said. "No matter what situation we're put in, we will keep coming back. There is nothing that we think we can't do." Mohammed had 20 points and 11 boards for the Knicks, who shot 53 percent (46-of-87) but attempted just nine free throws to 30 for the Wizards. After the buzzer, coach Lenny Wilkens stared down the officiating crew. "(The number of times) we got the line compared to the number of times they got to the line is ludicrous," Wilkens said.
