Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Despite losing their best player early, the Utah Jazz gave the Washington Wizards all they could handle. Gilbert Arenas scored 29 points and Larry Hughes added 25 as the Wizards escaped with an 85-84 victory over the Jazz, who lost forward Andrei Kirilenko to a broken wrist in the first quarter. While driving the lane with 8:58 remaining in the opening period, Kirilenko was fouled by Kwame Brown and fell to the floor, breaking the left wrist and spraining the right. "I jumped and lost my balance and fell down on both my wrists," Kirilenko said. "I felt like something was wrong. I didn't feel like it was broken, but I felt like it was a bad sprain." "That definitely was a blow to them," Brown said. "But there definitely wasn't any malice on my part. I'm sorry that it happened." The 2004 All-Star is expected to need six weeks to heal without undergoing surgery, which effectively ends his season. "He's now in a splint," Jazz team doctor Lyle Mason said. "It's a clean break, no surgery, and it should go back to absolutely perfectly normal." "It's frustrating," said Kirilenko, who missed 26 games earlier this season with a sprained right MCL. "This is my 40th game, so I've missed more than half the season. This is my second big injury of the season and I'd never had one before in my professional career, so it's tough." Washington failed to take advantage of Utah's plight, leading just 21-16 after one quarter. Despite the loss of Kirilenko and 53 percent (17-of-32) shooting by the Wizards in the first half, the Jazz entered the break with just a 46-40 deficit. "We're just used to (being shorthanded), that's the theme of our season," said Utah guard Raja Bell, who returned after missing a game with a bruised leg. "We've had to play without Andrei for so long and without (Carlos) Boozer for so long, we kind of don't miss a beat. ... We have a lot of guys who can play, a lot of guys that do a good job of stepping up and filling that role when it's their turn." The Jazz picked up their play in the third period, using an 11-2 run to forge a 62-62 tie with 2:29 remaining. Matt Harpring scored nine of his 18 points in the period. A 3-pointer by Howard Eisley with 6:35 to go capped a 10-2 spurt that gave Utah a 78-76 edge, and the teams traded the lead down the stretch before Hughes buried a jumper with 46 seconds left to give Washington an 85-84 advantage. On the other end, Gordan Giricek missed an 18-foot jumper that would have regained the lead for Utah. "I'm mad at myself, particularly on my lost shot," Giricek said. "I should probably have drove like I had on my previous shot. I'm so mad at myself about that play, but then we also missed a lot of open shots as a team." With the Wizards seemingly in control in the final seconds, Hughes was stripped by Keith McLeod. But after racing downcourt with Arenas in close pursuit, McLeod missed the potential winning layup with two seconds to go. "That's a tough play," Bell said. "Keith made a great steal and he was trying to make a play. I can't say that I wouldn't have done the same thing. I think he got fouled, but the refs didn't call it. He made the play he thought he had to make." The Wizards, who were just 9-of-34 (27 percent) in the second half, were efficient from the line, making 26-of-37 free throws. The Jazz attempted just 11 foul shots, making nine. "That's the way we play," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "They really played physical and got some touches in the paint against their small lineup." Arenas handed out six assists, Hughes pulled down eight rebounds and Brown had 11 points and eight boards for the Wizards, who posted their second win over the Jazz in six days. "They play hard. They play every possession like it's their last," Arenas said of the Jazz. "They've got some tough guys. Matt Harpring, he plays hard. ... They're just a hard-nosed team, like (Utah coach) Jerry Sloan was when he was playing." McLeod scored 13 points, Gordan Giricek added 11 and Bell 10 and 10 rebounds for the Jazz, who have dropped 10 of their last 11 games.
