Last night at MCI Center

KEY NUMBER

14 The Wizards’ franchise record-tying 3-point baskets.

Quotable

“He was a one-man run.”

— Larry Hughes, on the 13 straight points Gilbert Arenas scored in the final 4:25 of the third quarter.

SEEN AND HEARD

HELPING HAND: The Wizards wore wristbands to show support and sympathy for the Indian Ocean tsunami victims. The team sold bands at the arena for a minimum $2 donation, with all proceeds going to UNICEF.

KWAME OK?: The MRI on Kwame Brown’s right ankle Monday showed no structural damage, leaving Brown optimistic he’ll be able to play in tomorrow night’s nationally televised game against Seattle. “I’m going to practice tomorrow, try to get my rhythm and go out and play on Thursday,” Brown said.

AN ETAN SIGHTING: Look for forward Etan Thomas to make his first appearance this season within the next week. Thomas has been out because of a severely strained abdomen.

GUARANTEED PROFIT?: The Wizards must make a decision today whether to guarantee Laron Profit’s contract through the rest of the season.
