After starting in place of an injured Antonio Daniels on Saturday, Juan Dixon returned to his normal reserve role. He provided his usual spark, knocking down a 3-pointer 19 seconds into the second quarter to tie the score at 26-26. It was the first of seven ties in the second quarter, and after the last (38-38 with 3:45 left in the half), Washington took charge.

Jamison hit an 18-footer for his team’s second lead of the half, and Butler scored two consecutive baskets. Williams knocked down a 3 with a minute left, but McGee closed out the quarter with a dunk to give Washington a 46-41 halftime lead.
