Obnoxious Sports! The Hawks came home after a loss to be sure to protect home court and the Wizards was not going to get a win in Atlanta. Now they cam back a couple of times only to get shut down.
Jeff Teague scored 26 points, Al Horford added 21 and the Atlanta Hawks got back to winning after their first loss in more than a month, pulling away from the Washington Wizards for a 105-96 victory Wednesday night.
The East-leading Hawks were coming off a 115-100 loss at New Orleans that snapped their franchise-record, 19-game winning streak. They made sure it didn’t turn into a different kind of streak, overcoming a dismal third quarter to beat the Wizards for the third straight time this season.
Teague finished off the Wizards with a drive to the basket, laying the ball in despite getting bounced to the floor by Marcin Gortat. Teague sank the free throw to complete the three-point play, giving Atlanta a 103-92 lead with 1:54 remaining.
John Wall had 24 points but it wasn’t enough to keep Washington from its season-high fourth straight loss.
