DeShawn Stevenson topped the Wizards with a season-high 26 points, Caron Butler scored 19, Antawn Jamison had 16 points and 16 rebounds. Brendan Haywood finished with 12 points and Antonio Daniels had 11. Washington has had five players in double figures in each of the last four games, the first time since March 2004.

SHORT-HANDED
San Antonio, playing without stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, lost a second consecutive game for the first time this season, falling to the Los Angeles Lakers 102-97 on Thursday night.

SUSPENDED
The NBA suspended Atlanta forward Al Horford on Thursday for one game for a flagrant foul against Toronto's T.J. Ford. Horford injured Ford when he struck him on the head and knocked him down as Ford was trying to score on a breakaway with 1:32 left in the Raptors' 100-88 win over the Hawks on Tuesday night. Horford, who was ejected for the flagrant foul, said he was trying to block Ford's shot.

CLIPPED
The Los Angeles Clippers waived forward Ruben Patterson on Thursday, hours after he helped them beat the Nets in New Jersey for the first time in nearly 10 years. Patterson, who signed with the Clippers as a free agent Aug. 29, made five starts in 20 games, averaging 5.1 points and 3.2 assists.

SPEAKING
``You've got to maintain your character, your poise. You're needed by your basketball club.'' - Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson on starting center Andrew Bynum, who picked up two technical fouls and was ejected with 4:32 left in the third quarter of the Lakers' 102-97 win over San Antonio on Thursday night.
