ATLANTA – Kyle Korver hit a three-point shot with 1.7 seconds left in overtime and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Washington Wizards 101-100 Wednesday night. The winless Wizards almost had a final bucket -- Martell Webster tipped in a Kevin Seraphin shot, but time had expired. Seraphin had a season high 21 points and 10 rebounds and Trevor Ariza 15 rebounds and 12 points. The Wizards got a boost from the return of Nene, who scored 12 points in his season debut. The Hawks, led by Josh Smith's 25 points and 12 rebounds, were up by as many as 11 points in the third quarter, on the strength of four 3-pointers by Korver. Al Horford scored 15 points to go with nine rebounds and 10 assists but was 1 for 10 from the free-throw line, including missing two shots with 22 seconds left. The Wizards out-rebounded the Hawks 51-35 in regulation. The Hawks led most of the first quarter, and by as many as 10 points. But the Wizards narrowed the score to 26-24 when both teams went to their second units. An 11-2 run by the Wizards gave them their largest lead of the half, 37-32 at 5:52 in the second quarter. The Wizards were making 3-point shots, but the Hawks rallied for a 50-47 halftime lead by going inside. NOTES: Wizards coach Randy Wittman said, "You'll see it at tip-off," when asked an hour before game time what his starting lineup would be. He's still searching for a combination that clicks. … Nene, who missed the Wizards' first nine games with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, was active for the game but his role will be limited until he regains his conditioning. He entered the game at 2:23 in the first quarter. … Trevor Booker was out with a strained right knee. … Someone -- no one knew who -- decreed that the Wizards would wear black socks for the game. But after Jordan Crawford drew howls from his teammates when he put them on with his white shoes, the players couldn't go through with it; they switched to white socks. … All of the Hawks are over the flu bug that went through the team on last week's West Coast trip, including coach Larry Drew, who started it all. … Drew started the same lineup he used Monday against the Magic, the first time this season the same group has started consecutive games: Jeff Teague, Devin Harris, Korver, Smith and Horford.
