WASHINGTON -- A month ago Drew Goodens home court was at an LA Fitness facility a few miles outside of Washington, D. Tanner Kero Jersey .C. Now hes squarely in the U.S. capital and helping the Washington Wizards playoff drive. John Wall scored 33 points, Gooden got 11 of his 21 in the final quarter and the Wizards overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 101-94 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night. "You guys joke about me being old, but Im still Drew Gooden," the 32-year-old said. "And thats what I do. Once I see a couple going in I feel like I cant miss. Tonight the ball was definitely on my side and it dropped for me tonight." Goodens 3-pointer broke a 94-94 tie with 2:37 left. Trevor Ariza then scored off an offensive rebound with 44 seconds left and Wall capped it with dunk. Washington completed a sweep of the season series (3-0) and moved ahead of Brooklyn for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. The game between two teams that could meet in the post-season had a playoff atmosphere in front of the Wizards third sellout of the season. "The longer we go here, the more games are going to feel like that. I thought the fans in the building were electric, all night," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "Our guys played off of that and it was an intense game, there is no question about that." Wittman said Gooden -- who added nine rebounds -- Harrington, and Andre Miller provided a lift off the bench. "A couple times early in the first half, (the game) was tinkering on a break point," Wittman said. "I thought our guys, Drew, Andre and Al, changed the tone of the game when they went in. Their physicality bled under the other guys." With starting centre/forward Nene sidelined (sprained left knee), the Wizards signed Gooden -- now in his 11th NBA season -- to a 10-day contract on Feb. 26 and another on March 8. Soon theyll have to decide whether or not to keep him for the remainder of the season. "Obviously Drew came out, and those are things he can do, he can make shots," Wittman said. Washingtons Bradley Beal, who sprained an ankle in Friday nights overtime win at Orlando, started and added 15 points. The Nets, who went the final 6:22 without a field goal, were led by Marcus Thorntons 19 points. Joe Johnson added 16 and Paul Pierce had 15. "We got great looks, it just didnt go down," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. "We executed plays, I think we might have gotten a little frustrated on the defensive end, when we were giving up shots, and that led to the carry-over on the offensive end." Thornton opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer that gave Brooklyn an 82-72 lead. "Thats a chance when you could put a team on its back, when you go up double figures. ..." Pierce said. "But we never could give them that big hit. And they kept grinding, kept grinding, and got back in the game." The Wizards went on a 15-4 run keyed by Gooden (8 of 11 from the field) and Harrington. Harrington started things off when he scored four points and picked up a steal that led to a basket by Beal. Then with the Wizards trailing by three, Gooden hit a layup and then a jumper from the wing that gave Washington an 87-86 lead, its first of the half. "I thought in the fourth quarter we got down and defended," Wittman said. "We didnt take any shortcuts." Thornton answered for New Jersey, making a 3 and following with a driving bank shot to put Brooklyn up 91-87 midway through the quarter. The Wizards tied it at 92 on Walls free throw. Wall nearly brought the Wizards all the way back in the third, when he scored 15 points. The Wizards cut a 12-point deficit to 63-62 before Brooklyn went on an 8-0 run. The Wizards, playing on back-to-back nights, trailed by seven after one and pulled to within 33-32 on Martell Websters 3-pointer early in the second quarter. NOTES: The Wizards improved to 17-16 at home. ... Washington last swept the Nets in 2009-10, when they took all four meetings. ... Brooklyn F Andrei Kirilenko returned after missing two games with a sprained ankle. ... Nets C Jason Collins, who signed a contract for the remainder of the season Saturday, didnt see action. ... Pierce (24,819) passed Patrick Ewing for 18th place on the NBAs career points list. Tommy Wingels Jersey .Y. - Everyone expected Clayton Kershaw to pitch a shutout, and he did — a unanimous choice for the NL Cy Young Award. Tony Esposito Jersey . The Wizards gave up two seldom-used players — forward Jan Vesely and point guard Eric Maynor. Vesely goes to the Nuggets, while Maynor gets shipped to the 76ers. Philadelphia receives two second-round draft picks, one from the Wizards in 2015 and one from the Nuggets in 2016. http://www.officialblackhawksauthority.com/john-hayden-blackhawks-jersey-c-54/ .com) - The Milwaukee Bucks will try to get another win on this homestand Thursday night when they welcome the Utah Jazz to the Bradley Center.After being handed their worst loss in more than two years, the Golden State Warriors bounced back to down the Cleveland Cavaliers and move one win shy of completing a dream title run. Stephen Curry, the NBAs regular season Most Valuable Player, scored 38 points and Klay Thompson added 25 to power Golden State past the hosts 108-97 on Friday and grab a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven NBA Finals.For the Cavaliers and star LeBron James, who knows no team has recovered from 3-1 to win in the finals, it was a time to search for answers. If you dont think we can win, dont get on the plane, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. In the NBA Finals you have got to lay it all on the line.Cleveland ripped the Warriors 120-90 in game three just two nights earlier, but a Golden State team that won an NBA record 73 regular-season games and battled from a 3-1 deficit to beat Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals series was not about to get humiliated again.This team has been through a lot together, Golden State forward Draymond Green said. This team has great character. No matter what we continue to battle and defend. If we do that, our offense will get going. Thats the way we always approach things and it works out for us.A tense game turned when Golden State used a 26-12 run in the third quarter to seize a 79-73 edge. Cleveland answered to regain the lead but Harrison Barnes hit two three-pointers in a 12-1 run that put the Warriors on top to stay. Artem Anisimov Jersey. Klay Thompson scored 25 points We played physical. Thats what was the big difference for us, Barnes said. Just trying to be aggressive, being able to take those shots whether you make them or miss them.For James, it came down to lamenting the fact he had only four free-throw chances.It has been like that all year for the most part, James said. Im not quite sure what I can do personally to get to the free-throw line, but Ive got to continue to be aggressive for our team.Im getting hit, but the refs are not seeing it that way on my drives. Thats what opens up the floor for a lot of our shooters. Its tough playing 46 minutes and only going to the line four times, as much as I attack the rim. So its just a tough situation for our team.James, who had 25 points but seven of Clevelands 11 turnovers, was hopeful not to draw a fine from the league for criticising referees.I didnt talk about the referees. I was asked a question and I answered it. Im going to save my 25K, he said.I havent been solid with the basketball. A lot of it is making plays not only for myself but for my team-mates.Game five in the series takes place on Monday in Oakland, California.
