Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Steve Francis had one of the worst games of his career but still managed to lead the Orlando Magic to victory. Despite missing his first 11 shots, Francis scored four points in the final 45 seconds as the Magic snapped the Washington Wizards' four-game winning streak with a 108-101 triumph. With the game tied at 100-100, Francis shook off his horrible performance and drained a 17-foot jumper from the right elbow with 45 seconds left. "I had to take that shot. That's the shot I work on all the time," Francis said. "My teammates and coaches trust me to make a good decision in that situation." "Steve's a gamer and when the game's on the line, he usually comes up big for us," Magic coach Johnny Davis said. "(He) struggled throughout the game offensively but down the stretch (he) came up huge for us." Francis, who collected 10 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, did make all eight of his free throws, including two with 17 seconds remaining to make it 104-100. "Tonight wasn't a good night for me to score," Francis said. "I've always said to help my team I don't have to score. I rebound and get everybody else involved. I didn't do nothing offensively but I'm still going to going to play hard, no matter what." While Francis did his job at the line, Washington's Gilbert Arenas fell apart in the final 2:07. After making his first 11 free throws, Arenas was just 2-of-7 down the stretch. He scored 30 points, his fifth 30-point performance in his last six games. "I think the rim was broken at the end," Arenas said. "I think they needed to fix that before we come back and play. Really, I felt like a rookie again in crunch time, choking up at the free-throw line. "All you can do is laugh about it now. I can't let this hang over because we have a game tomorrow." The two Southeast Division foes square off again Saturday in Washington. Winners of its last six and 15 of its last 16 at the TD Waterhouse Center, the Magic connected on all 14 free throws in the final period and were 20-of-21 overall. After starting eight consecutive games, Turkoglu came off the bench and sparked Orlando's offense, matching his career best with 31 points, including five 3-pointers. He scored seven consecutive points to give the Magic an 85-78 lead with 8:17 left, but Arenas scored 12 of his 18 fourth-quarter points during an 18-7 burst that gave the Wizards a 98-94 advantage with 3:15 to go. "Hedo's done a great job all year coming off the bench, and I think he feels more comfortable in that role," Francis said. "There's not too much pressure at the beginning of the game, where he really has to force the issue." Turkoglu, who had 17 second-period points, including all 10 in a 10-0 run, doesn't care whether he starts or comes off the bench. "As long as I get my minutes, I always feel comfortable," the 25-year-old Turk said. "Because right now, I'm feeling good and confident as long as I get my minutes and I get my shots. It really don't matter for me right now." Washington's Antawn Jamison scored 28 points but just two in the final period. Jamison played only seven minutes in the quarter and was left on the bench in the final two minutes. "That was one of the situations where I didn't make the right decision," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan. "They kept us guessing and kept us off as far as matchups. They made some great moves tonight."
