Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison resembled their All-Star form, but the New Orleans Hornets showed some uncharacteristic balance. Dan Dickau converted two free throws with 4.5 seconds remaining and Arenas misfired on a 3-pointer as time expired, allowing the Hornets to escape with a 98-96 victory over the Washington Wizards. Arenas and Jamison, a pair of All-Stars who have the Wizards among the NBA's biggest surprises this season, had huge games while receiving little help from their teammates. Arenas scored 34 points and Jamison 30, the only two Wizards in double figures. Dickau was one of six players to reach double figures for the Hornets. His two free throws after he was fouled by Brendan Haywood on a drive to the basket snapped a 94-94 tie. Following a pair of timeouts, Arenas had a chance to win it, but his shot from the top of the key came up short. "We didn't make sound plays at the end," said Arenas, who scored at least 30 points for the 15th time this season. "We were frantic. We got the stops we needed, except at the end with Dickau." Washington held a 48-34 advantage on the boards, but the rebound it failed to get proved costly. After Dickau missed a 3-pointer with 23 seconds left, P.J. Brown, who played 41 minutes after spraining his ankle at Orlando on Sunday, sprinted to the right corner to grab the rebound. "I wish we had 12 P.J.'s," Hornets coach Byron Scott said. "He is the ultimate warrior. I really thought that he wouldn't play today. I hope our younger guys watched and learned something." Rookie J.R. Smith scored 18 points, Chris Andersen 16 and Bostjan Nachbar 15 to lead a strong bench effort for the Hornets, who have won seven of their last 10 home games. They lost 12 of their first 13 contests at home en route to an embarrassing 2-29 start overall. During the Hornets' recent home success, Dickau has scored the winning points in the final 10 seconds three times. Led by Andersen and Nachbar, the Hornets held a 39-12 advantage in bench points. "Our bench was good," Dickau said. "We're getting a lot of contributions from a lot of different guys. That's the second time in three games we had six in double figures. If that continues, we're going to have quite a few wins down the stretch." Andersen scored 10 points to highlight 17-6 second-quarter run. Nachbar netted the Hornets' first six points of the fourth quarter for an 83-74 lead. "It's nice to know that coach and the team are counting on me," said Nachbar, who has averaged 15.7 points in the Hornets' last three victories. "It's the best feeling possible. Obviously I've shown them something that they like, and they want more." New Orleans avenged an 88-69 loss at Washington in December in which it tied a franchise record with 33 turnovers. But five Hornets who played in that game no longer are with the team. "We played a team that doesn't seem to be a 10-41 team," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "We had our hands full. They were really playing at a high level defensively. "Their bench did a great job. Nachbar made contested shots. Andersen played very well. He got some offensive rebounds and some highlight plays, momentum plays. Byron is using his bench very well. His staff is putting guys in position to succeed."
