Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- On a night he led his team in scoring, Larry Hughes made his mark on the defensive end. Hughes scored 31 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and made a series of big defensive plays in the fourth quarter to lift the Wizards to a 95-94 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. Entering as the NBA's leader in steals per game with a 2.9 average, Hughes had three in the final six minutes and knocked the ball out of Ray Allen's hands with five seconds left. It was recovered by Seattle guard Antonio Daniels, who missed a shot at the buzzer, preventing the SuperSonics from clinching a playoff spot. "I've been doing it all year, playing passing lanes and getting a hand in there and being on the attack on both ends (of the floor)," Hughes said. "We needed it, and I was there to make it happen." Washington played without starting center Brendan Haywood, who was placed on the injured list prior to the game and is expected to miss two to four weeks after fracturing the tip of his left thumb in Friday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. "It was very important (to get the win)," Hughes said. "We lost another starter and don't know how long he's going to be out. (The win) shows the character we have. We're not giving up, no matter what our situation is." The Wizards led for much of the second half but found themselves in an 80-80 deadlock midway through the fourth before Hughes got going. Etan Thomas' two free throws gave Washington the lead for good, 82-80, and Hughes followed with a strip of Allen that led to a three-point play on the other end. Before Seattle could catch its breath, Hughes made another steal and raced in for a dunk and an 87-80 lead with 5:41 to go. "Larry played at a high level tonight - rebounding, steals, just setting up our defense and being a leader," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. A late 7-0 run pulled the Sonics within 93-92 in the final minute, but Kwame Brown's two free throws put the Wizards up by three. Damien Wilkins answered with a layup for Seattle and Washington guard Gilbert Arenas was called for an offensive foul with 16.7 seconds remaining, setting up the Sonics' last possession. When Daniels' potential game-winning 3-point try was off the mark, Seattle saw its five-game winning streak snapped. "Larry Hughes played great defense," Daniels said of the games' final play. "He knocked it loose from Ray and I had to heave it at the end. When I'm looking at the clock, I've got to shoot it and hope for the best." Hughes collected all five of his assists in the first half and finished with four steals. Arenas had 18 points and nine assists and Thomas scored 15 in his first start this season for the Wizards, who improved to 2-2 on their current five-game road trip. "Larry did a great job. That's what he's been doing all year," Arenas said of his backcourt mate. "I was off in the second half and he carried the load." With Haywood out, Hughes and Arenas took on the bulk of the rebounding duties, finishing the game with a combined 18 boards. Allen scored 27 points but was part of a Sonics squad that shot just 32 percent (17-of-53) after the first quarter. "The majority of our (offense) comes from me and Rashard (Lewis) shooting the threes, and Rashard was limping a bit, so he wasn't his normal self today," Allen said. "Between us, we didn't have it going." With the victory, the Wizards posted just their second season sweep of the Sonics since 1972-73. They also managed to win the only contest between the clubs in 1998-99, a campaign shortened because of labor problems. Since losing 18 straight games in Seattle, Washington has won four of seven. The Sonics played without reserve forward-center Danny Fortson, who was suspended one game for his refusal to enter Friday night's win over New York.
