Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Gilbert Arenas made the key shots down the stretch to help the Washington Wizards inch closer to the postseason. Arenas scored five of his 36 points in the final 80 seconds as the Wizards posted a 102-99 victory over the lowly Atlanta Hawks, completing a season series sweep. The Wizards (40-30) won their third straight game and maintained a one-game lead over the Chicago Bulls for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. "We have to win the home games," Wizards guard Larry Hughes said. "All teams who call themselves playoff teams win their home games and steal some on the road. We have played well at home. When you don't win the home games, you make it a tough season." Arenas made a right-side baseline jumper with 1:17 to go to put the Wizards on top, 95-93. Atlanta's Al Harrington hit a tying 18-footer with 50 seconds left before Arenas drove the lane for a layup and a 97-95 advantage with 34 seconds remaining. Washington's Juan Dixon and Atlanta's Tyronn Lue traded two free throws before Larry Hughes was fouled immediately and sank both shots with 14 seconds left, giving the Wizards a 101-97 lead. "It is tough because they (Arenas and Hughes) are going to shoot the ball almost every time they touch it," Harrington said. "When you play guys like that, all you can do is hope they miss. It is pretty much impossible to shut them down unless they are completely off." Lue made a layup with six seconds to go and Arenas made 1-of-2 free throws before Lue missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, sending Atlanta to its 10th straight loss. Hughes scored 26 points and center Etan Thomas, who is starting in place of injured Brendan Haywood, added 16 for the Wizards, who forced 23 turnovers. After going 3-2 on a recent five-game road trip, Washington won its 25th home game to set a single-season record for victories at the MCI Center. "It's always tough when you're coming home after being on the road for so long," Arenas said. "It's almost like another road game because it's another arena to get used to, our sixth in the last six games. But it was nice to be back here in front of our fans and we pulled it out." Washington coach Eddie Jordan left the bench twice in the first half and did not return for the second half because of a virus and dehydration. Assistant Mike O'Koren ran the club for the rest of the game. "(Eddie) told me he didn't feel well and was going back (to the locker room)," O'Koren said. "At halftime, the doctors were with him and he just didn't feel well enough to come out." The Hawks trailed for the first three quarters but opened the fourth period with a 13-4 burst capped by a jumper by Tom Gugliotta to take an 84-81 lead with 8:29 remaining. "We got off to such a rocky start early," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. "Once we got settled down from throwing the ball away against their pressure, we were in the ball game to the very end. But we have to figure out how to win down the stretch. This was a winnable game." Harrington scored 20 points and rookie swingman Josh Smith added 17 for the Hawks (11-60), who have dropped 23 of 24. "If you play the game for the right reasons, it's easy to come out and play hard as you can every night," Harrington said. "Obviously we are not going anywhere. But at the same time, we have a lot of pride."
