Hawks Vs. Wizards Final Score: Atlanta Comes From Behind To Defeat Washington 95-92

The Atlanta Hawks appeared to be dead in the water before unleashing a furious fourth quarter rally for the second day in a row this time knocking off the Washington Wizards 95-92.

Joe Johnson's three pointer with 46 seconds remaining gave Atlanta its first lead since the first quarter. After a couple of Johnson free throws, John Wall missed a game tying attempt sealing the victory for the Hawks. Atlanta trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter before making their run in the fourth.

Josh Smith turned in another solid effort with 20 points and nine rebounds. Joe Johnson finished with 16 points, five boards and three assists. Zaza Pachulia added 13 points on 5-6 shooting and Kirk Hinrich added 10. Jeff Teague finished with nine points and nine assists on the night.

Atlanta's bench played a key role in the comeback cutting the lead down to just four points in the fourth quarter before both Josh Smith and Joe Johnson checked back in. Marvin Williams led the guys off the bench with 13 points while Vladimir Radmanovic added six in his return to action. Ivan Johnson scored five points and grabbed six rebounds in 18 minutes of action.

For the Wizards, Nene scored 14 of his 21 points in the first half and also finished with 11 rebounds. Jordan Crawford added 20 on 9-19 shooting. Former D-League standout Edwin Ubiles chipped in 10 points off the bench. John Wall finished with eight points and three assists but was just 1-10 from the field.

The Hawks win the first two games on their final back-to-back-to-back set of the season. The Utah Jazz will make their only visit of the season to Philips Arena on Sunday.

Hawks Vs. Wizards Score: Atlanta Trails Washington 52-41 At Halftime

Despite 14 points from Josh Smith the Atlanta Hawks trail the Washington Wizards 52-41 at halftime. This game against the Wizards started much like last night's game against the Nets with the Hawks being unable to corral a rebound. The Wizards took advantage of the extra opportunities and found a rhythm in the second quarter where they outscored Atlanta 29-18.

Josh Smith hit 6-10 shots and has three rebounds to go along with a couple of blocks and steals. Marvin Williams has nine points off the bench but no other hawks player has more than Kirk Hinrich's five. Joe Johnson has four points on 2-5 shooting in the first half.

Washington began the second quarter with an 8-0 run to help put some distance between themselves and Atlanta. The newly acquired Nene was most responsible as he had his way inside against Zaza Pachulia and Jason Collins. Nene finished the half with 14 points and eight rebounds, four of which were offensive.

Former Hawks draft pick Jordan Crawford burned his old team for 11 first-half points and Chris Singleton finished with seven. The Wizards hit 51 percent of their shot attempts in the first half and out rebounded the Hawks 23-14.
