Recap

Hawks 101, Wizards 100 (OT): Kyle Korver drilled a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining in overtime, and host Atlanta kept Washington as the only winless team remaining in the NBA. 

Al Horford came close to a triple-double for the Hawks, totaling 15 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, while Josh Smith led all scorers with 25 points and chipped in 12 rebounds. 

Kevin Seraphin scored 21 to lead the Wizards. Nene made his season debut after missing the first nine games of the season with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and gave Washington a huge boost, scoring 12 points as part of a 62-point effort by the Wizards' reserves.

The lead changed hands twice - and almost three times - in the final few seconds. Seraphin hit a jumper with 7.3 seconds left to put the Wizards ahead 100-98 and Korver answered with his huge 3-pointer at the other end. 

Washington had enough time for one last try, and Martell Webster tried to tip in an airball by Seraphin at the buzzer. Webster made the shot, but the officials reviewed the play and ruled the putback attempt was made after time had expired.


GAME NOTEBOOK: Washington F Trevor Booker did not play after straining his knee two nights earlier in a loss to Indiana. ... Horford's nine assists set a new career-high output. ... Nene's minutes were limited and he watched from the sideline as the game concluded.
