Last night at MCI Center

8 Number of consecutive victories for the Wizards with Larry Hughes (31 points) in the lineup. Hughes has missed 20 games with a broken thumb.


With the Rockets leading 91-90 with four minutes remaining, Hughes’ 3-pointer during a 13-2 run gave the Wizards the lead for good.


FOR ALL TO SEE: The Wizards’ April 15 home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers moves to 8 p.m. and will be shown on ESPN. The Wizards last played on national TV on Jan. 6, a 107-96 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics on TNT.

EWING GRATEFUL: Georgetown and NBA legend Patrick Ewing, who was a Wizards assistant and is now with the Rockets, is happy for the organization where he got his start as an assistant coach. “I’m happy for Eddie [Jordan]; I think he’s a fine coach,” Ewing said. “[General manager] Ernie [Grunfeld] has been a very good friend, and I wish them the best. The Wizards were very good to me. They gave me an opportunity to coach, and I’m very respectful of that and for that I thank them.”
