ATLANTA -- Pero Antic made the game-winning inbounds pass. Al Horford said all he had to do was make the catch near the basket and then shoot a soft jumper. All in 1.8 seconds. Just like in practice. Horford matched his career high with 34 points, including a jumper as time expired in overtime, and the Atlanta Hawks recovered after blowing a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter to beat the Washington Wizards 101-99 on Friday night. "We work on that in practice," Horford said. "We had three options: Me, Paul (Millsap) or Kyle (Korver). I think they overplayed both of those guys. (Antic) gave me a great pass." With the game tied at 99, Antic threw the high pass over other players to Horford, who hit a short fallaway over Washingtons Trevor Booker as the buzzer sounded. A video review confirmed the shot beat the buzzer. "It was supposed to be a lob for a dunk," Horford said. "As soon as I got it, I shot it." Booker, who led Washington with 24 points and 14 rebounds, said he thought he could intercept the pass. "It hurts," Booker said. "I thought I could get the ball and it went over my head. "(Horford) actually fumbled it at first and then knocked it down. I didnt even get a chance to really contest it." Millsap and Korver had 16 points for Atlanta. Horford grabbed 15 rebounds. The Hawks took their 11th straight home win in the series. Korvers 3-pointer gave Atlanta a 95-93 lead in overtime. After Teague had two baskets for Atlanta, each answered by Booker, Washington called a timeout with 11 seconds remaining in the extra period. John Walls penetration and pass set up Bookers tying layup with 1.8 seconds remaining. Wall, quiet most of the night, had 11 points in the fourth period and finished with 13 while shooting only 6 of 22. Martell Webster had 15 points. "We just gave this game away," Wall said, adding his fourth-quarter shots were "the same shots I took in the first half, I just didnt make them. I struggled." The Wizards led 86-84 when Horford blocked a shot by Marcin Gortat. Wall fouled Horford with 5.5 seconds remaining in regulation and Horford made both free throws to tie the game. Wall, guarded by DeMarre Carroll, missed a fallaway jumper at the buzzer to send the game to overtime. The Hawks led 48-46 at halftime before outscoring the Wizards 23-15 in the third period. Washington made only 5 of 17 shots in the period. Atlanta took an 80-65 lead early in the fourth quarter before the Wizards made their charge with a 16-2 run. "We gave them life," Horford said. "Theyre a resilient team." Washington coach Randy Wittman said his players "didnt do anything" before the run late in regulation. "Ill give them credit for staying in the fight and having an opportunity to win the game," Wittman said. "But when you dont play for 42 minutes, youve got to play perfect basketball. ... I just dont think we were ready to play." Bookers basket with 4:30 remaining cut the Hawks lead to 82-77. A tip-in by Gortat trimmed the lead to three points. Following a missed 3-pointer by Korver, Wall went behind his back on a drive and basket with 2:56 remaining, cutting Atlantas lead to 82-81. Wall added a jumper and 3-pointer in the final 2:15 of regulation. Korver had four 3-pointers, extending his NBA-record streak to 92 games with at least one 3. Wizards rookie Otto Potter, playing in his third game, closed the first period with his first career field goal. Potter then made Washingtons first basket of the second period on a jumper. NOTES: Washingtons last win at Atlanta was on Jan. 11, 2008. ... Gortat had 12 points and 10 rebounds. ... Horford also had 34 points at Utah on Feb. 27, 2013. ... Wizards F Nene (Achilles) and G Bradley Beal (leg) did not play. Webster returned after missing one game with a sprained right ankle. ...
