Wizards 101, Hawks 97

Guard John Wall scored 25 points and forward Drew Gooden added 16 points as the Washington Wizards beat the Atlanta Hawks 101-97.

Center Marcin Gortat had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Wizards, who moved within one game of the fifth placed Brooklyn Nets with nine games remaining and could clinch a postseason spot for the first time since 2008 if the New York Knicks lose at the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.

Guard Jeff Teague scored 19 points and forward Paul Millsap added 17 points for the Hawks.

Washington went from trailing by nine points in the third quarter to leading by 10 with 2:38 remaining in the game.
