Washington Wizards Team Report – December 2
=== Washington Wizards Team Report – December 2 ===
(Sports Network) – Gilbert Arenas recorded a season-high 30 points with
seven rebounds and five assists as the Washington Wizards easily disposed of
the New Jersey Nets, 95-68, at the MCI Center.
Antawn Jamison collected 18 points and nine rebounds to help the Wizards to
their fifth win in six games. Larry Hughes added 15 points while dishing out
nine assists in the victory.
Washington welcomed head coach Eddie Jordan and former No. 1 overall pick
Kwame Brown back into the fold. Jordan missed the last two games with a blood
clot in his left leg and Brown made his season debut after breaking a bone in
his foot during the offseason. He scored six points in 14 minutes before being
ejected with 6:48 left in the game after an altercation with New Jersey’s
Washington’s bench sparked an 11-4 spurt at the start of the fourth — the
last seven points coming from Anthony Peeler — and cruised from there as New
Jersey mustered just 12 points in the final stanza.
The Wizards return to action on Friday versus the Atlanta Hawks.
