Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- In the battle of the backups, Juan Dixon got the better of Willie Green. Dixon scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Washington Wizards rallied for a 117-107 victory the Philadelphia 76ers, their eighth straight home win. A reserve guard in his third season, Dixon has been starting in place of the injured Larry Hughes, who is out until late February with a fractured right thumb. After losing their first two games without their floor leader, Washington has won four in a row. Dixon has had a lot to do with that, scoring in double figures in his last six games. In this one, he came off the bench and did most of his damage in the final period as the Wizards staged another of their customary late rallies. "I just wanted to come in the game and provide some energy and get some easy opportunities for my teammates," said Dixon, who added five assists and three steals. "We started off kind of flat. They were able to get some confidence without Allen Iverson on the floor and they got some easy opportunities." Dixon had five points and two steals in a 9-2 surge that opened the fourth quarter and gave Washington a 91-89 lead. In a decisive 14-2 run midway through the period, he sank 6-of-8 free throws. "I can provide anything," he said. "That is what I did at Maryland; I got steals and I played the passing lanes. I played smart." With 1:35 to play, Dixon provided the clincher with a 3-pointer that gave Washington a 115-102 lead. "I was able to make something happen, gave the team some energy, got the crowd into it, and we finished them off," Dixon said. The 76ers played without Iverson, the NBA scoring leader who suffered a left shoulder injury while scoring 45 points in Monday's win over Miami. Green, who has been in and out of the rotation this season, started in his place and had the game of his life despite taking a hard shot to the nose in the second quarter. "My eyes were a little blurry and whatnot but I just tried to tough it out and play through it," Green said. "The doctor said it was just a real bad bruise; it's not broken." Green replaced Iverson's offense with a career-high 32 points, making 10-of-21 shots and 10-of-13 free throws. The second-year guard's jumper with 9:23 remaining forged a 91-91 tie, but he did not make another basket as Philadelphia's offense sputtered down the stretch. "I knew those guys like to press and push up, so in order to attack the pressure you've just got to go take it head-on," Green said. "Just take the ball to the basket real strong, and that's the mentality I tried to come out with tonight. We hung in there, but we just had a lot of turnovers (20) and that killed us." Gilbert Arenas scored 33 points and Antawn Jamison added 23 for the Wizards, who avenged an overtime loss at the buzzer at Philadelphia on November 26. Kenny Thomas scored 17 points and Kyle Korver added 15 for Philadelphia, which had won four of its last six games. "We have no doubt that when Allen's out that Willie can come in and give us a lot of production," Korver said. "He's done it before and he's liable to do again next time. We all know that. He's a very capable driver. He's strong, goes to the hole hard, and when he gets that shot going, he's really tough to guard." Jamison was surprised by Green's performance. "I guess Allen must've talked to him because he had the mindframe of Allen Iverson tonight, driving the ball, taking it to the hole, creating shots for others," Jamison said. "He really showed me something. I knew he was a pretty good player but he really came out and set the tone for those guys and made them feel like they could come in here and win. "When you have a superstar like Allen Iverson not playing you need somebody on your team to really step up and he definitely did that tonight." Green, however, felt Dixon was the difference. "Juan Dixon was just a pest out there," Green said. "Hiding behind guys and coming up and popping the ball out. And he and Arenas were knocking down big shots and free throws at the end." After Dixon made three free throws, a dunk by rookie Andre Iguodala gave the Sixers a 98-97 lead with 7:15 to play. A pair of hoops by Jamison gave the Wizards the lead for good before Dixon, Jamison and Arenas combined to make 7-of-8 free throws over the next 2 1/2 minutes to widen the lead to 108-98 with 2:52 remaining. "NBA games are won in the last four minutes," Arenas said. "We'd like to win them earlier but we know that we at least want to be in striking distance for the stretch run. We're comfortable when we're down because when there is time left on the clock, there's still time to win."
