(Sports Network) – Larry Hughes registered his first career triple-double
with a game-high 33 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Washington
Wizards to a 114-109 overtime victory over Toronto at the Air Canada Centre.
Gilbert Arenas netted 27 points and Brendan Haywood added 22 with 10 rebounds
in the victory. Antawn Jamison also had a double-double with 15 points and 10
rebounds for Washington, which has won four of its last five games.
Hughes, who tied the game with just 8/10ths of a second left in the fourth
quarter, gave the Wizards a 106-102 lead with a pair of free throws with 3:30
left in overtime.
A driving layup by Arenas put Washington in control, 108-102, with just under
three minutes to go.
Donyell Marshall later had a chance to tie the game, but missed from three-
point range with 10 seconds left and Jarvis Hayes made a pair of free throws
with 6.2 seconds remaining to seal the win.
The Raptors led most of the way and took their biggest lead, 86-76, with 6:29
left in the fourth quarter. Washington, however, outscored Toronto, 24-14, the
rest of the way to force overtime.
Rafer Alston fouled Hughes, who hit two free throws with under one second left
to send the contest into the extra session.
Washington returns to action on Wednesday against the New Jersey Nets.
