Washington... The Washington Wizards lost another game in excruciating fashion, this time failing to hold a lead in the final seconds and falling to Indiana, 114-113, on Saturday night before 13,171 at Verizon Center. The Wizards' losing streak reached four games, and they wasted a triple double by Gilbert Arenas (22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds) and strong performances from Antwan Jamison (31 points) and Caron Butler (23 points). After Arenas missed two free throws, T.J. Ford drove to the basket and put up a shot that was blocked out of bounds as the buzzer sounded.

As the Washington Wizards took the court to face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, Antawn Jamison had already ditched his uniform and was headed to his silver Bentley, carrying a duffel bag and leaving behind a season filled with misery. The Wizards traded Jamison to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a three-team deal completed Wednesday night. The Wizards will receive 7-foot-3 center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the rights to Slovenian forward Emir Preldzic and a first-round pick from Cleveland, as well as forward Al Thornton from the Los Angeles Clippers.

Three more members of the Washington Wizards have met with authorities concerning the Gilbert Arenas gun investigation. Caron Butler , Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson had to miss practice Monday to answer questions. Coach Flip Saunders and other players met with authorities last week. Arenas is under investigation for taking guns to Verizon Center and related incidents stemming from a dispute with teammate Javaris Crittenton . Arenas has been suspended indefinitely by the NBA, and Crittenton has been excused from team activities while the legal process plays out. The team also suspended Andray Blatche for one game for unspecified behavior during Sunday's game against New Orleans.

CHICAGO - -Whenever the Washington Wizards have struggled on the floor or dealt with a string of injuries, Antawn Jamison liked to use the phrase "Groundhog Day," a reference to the Bill Murray comedy in which Murray's character repeats the same day over and over. The Wizards are forced to start yet another season with a sidelined star after a magnetic resonance imaging Thursday revealed that Jamison would miss three to five weeks more after suffering a shoulder subluxation last week in Cleveland.

WASHINGTON - -Two things occurred Wednesday night that no one could have foreseen in training camp. One, on a team with three All-Stars, Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders would draw up a final shot for Earl Boykins. And two, Boykins would step to the foul line with fans at Verizon Center chanting, "MVP! MVP!" But Boykins has been the difference for the Wizards during their recent run of success, and he again came up with a huge fourth-quarter performance as Washington defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-102.

Washington traded Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday as a part of a seven-player deal, signaling the breakup of a disappointing Wizards team. The Mavericks dealt forwards Josh Howard and Drew Gooden and two other players to the Wizards. Dallas also got guard DeShawn Stevenson and cash considerations. The Wizards expected to contend for a playoff spot and instead have endured a miserable season that made it likely they would be active in slashing payroll before Thursday's trade deadline.

Comment (last week's rank) 1. Cavaliers 43-11 (1): Full of themselves, er, so confident they may not make a deal after all. 2. Lakers 41-13 (2): Now we know what the problem was: Too many stars. 3. Nuggets 35-18 (3): Lakers of Rockies trail real ones by 5 1/2 for all-important home court. 4. Magic 36-18 (4): Reports of Vince Carter's death apparently exaggerated: Scores 48 to end slump. 5. Hawks 33-18 (5): Proving they still have some Hawk in them, lost last one at home to Miami.

Dealing with a three-game losing streak, and struggling against a troubled team, Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics turned to their defense to pull out a victory.

Garnett's 19 points led six Celtics in double figures, and Boston limited Washington to 2-for-18 shooting in the fourth quarter en route to a 99-88 victory over the host Wizards on Monday night. "You're playing against the Boston Celtics, so you're not going to get a lot of calls.

INDIANAPOLIS -- As strange as it sounds, Florida coach Billy Donovan was talking like a man who wanted his team to run even more than it usually does in tonight's second NCAA tournament semifinal game against North Carolina. In essence, he was asking a team that already presses more than any other team in the tournament to one-up itself, if possible. All because his starting center, Udonis Haslem, is 6 feet 7, while power forward Brent Wright is 6-8. Compare that with the Tar Heels' Brendan Haywood (7-0)

WASHINGTON - -The Washington Wizards had taken two steps forward, then took a huge step back Saturday night at Verizon Center, forgetting all the good things that they had done to record wins over the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat and losing, 92-76, to the Charlotte Bobcats. The Wizards (5-10) just avoided matching their season low in points with a performance that might rank just north of putrid. Caron Butler led the Wizards with 19 points and Brendan Haywood had 10 points and nine rebounds, but no one on the Wizards could be pleased with his performance.
