Last night at MCI Center

BY THE NUMBERS

46.7 Percent shot by the Wizards at the free throw line. They beat the Trail Blazers despite making just 14 of 30.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Gilbert Arenas stole the ball and dunked to give the Wizards a 101-98 lead with 20.6 seconds to play.

SEEN AND HEARD

Kwame Brown’s injury-plagued season continued when the Wizards placed him on the injured list before the game with tendinitis in his right ankle. He won’t be eligible to return until Jan. 21, when the team plays host to Toronto.

“It’s really been kind of rough on Kwame,” coach Eddie Jordan said. “He’s a young guy who has been trying to do the right things, but he just hasn’t been able to catch a break.”

Brown began the season on the injured list after having offseason surgery on his right foot. He made his season debut Dec. 1 at New Jersey and has averaged just 15.9 minutes in 14 games. The original injury appears to have healed, and the latest injury is related to it only in that Brown had a portion of bone shaved from his ankle and inserted, along with a pin, in the area of the surgery.
