Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Just when it seemed like everything was falling apart, Gilbert Arenas rescued the Washington Wizards. Arenas made two big baskets after the Wizards came dangerously close to squandering a huge lead in a 111-102 victory over the Orlando Magic. Arenas and Larry Hughes - the Wizards' two best offensive players - dominated the first three quarters, helping Washington open what looked to be a commanding 93-69 lead. But using a frenetic full-court press in the fourth quarter, the Magic completely flustered the Wizards and got back in the game, using a 23-4 run to pull within 97-92 with 4:05 remaining on DeShawn Stevenson's reverse layup. "We thought they'd given up," Arenas said. "They decided to come full force. They caused some problems because we were still in cruise control." The Magic's furious rally featured a scare for the Wizards when Hughes went down with what appeared to be serious injury to his left arm with 4:35 to go. But Hughes, who missed nearly two months earlier this season with a broken thumb, returned less than two minutes later and was diagnosed with a sprained left elbow. Hughes' injury provided the Wizards with a momentary breather. Arenas stepped up by drilling a jumper and 3-pointer to rebuild the lead to 102-92 with 3:02 remaining. Arenas was not bothered when his backcourt made went down, saying, "Just give me the ball and I'll make something happen. As far as hitting those shots, that's what I do." "There's nothing they haven't done to make me think they can't get the job done," said Hughes, who made 9-of-18 shots. "In the fourth period, they pressured up, were more aggressive and got their hands on some balls. But it's tough to lead a team by 20 the whole game." Damone Brown added 11 points off the bench for Washington, which shot 46 percent (38-of-83) and committed seven of their 20 turnovers in the fourth quarter. Orlando was able to rally without Grant Hill, who sat out the entire fourth quarter after collecting 17 points, five steals and four assists. Hill hinted to reporters after the game that a shin injury, which forced him to miss four games in March, was bothering him. Arenas scored 31 points and Hughes had 30 and nine rebounds for the Wizards (41-30), who won their fourth straight game and moved one game ahead of Chicago for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Washington has not made the playoffs since 1997. "Gilbert and I are the best backcourt tandem in the league," Hughes said. "You can put us up against anybody, either in the East or the West, and I feel like we're the best." Rookie Dwight Howard had 22 points and 11 rebounds and Steve Francis added 21 and 10 for Orlando (34-38), which squandered a chance to tie Philadelphia for the final playoff spot in the East. New Jersey's win at New York left the Magic 10th in the Eastern Conference and out of the playoff mix. The Magic, who completed a disappointing 2-3 homestand, play eight of their final 10 games against teams with winning records. They face Miami, Dallas, Detroit twice and Chicago twice. "I felt like we were down 50 the whole game," Francis said. "I thought in the first half, we just got outhustled. You can't anything away from them. They got into their sets and got what they wanted. But we needed to play the first half like we did in the second." In the first three quarters, the Wizards used runs of 9-0, 16-3 and 18-3 to take control.
