Hawks Vs. Wizards: Washington Keeps Foot On Gas In 115-83 Win

With four minutes left in the game, the Wizards had Musta Shakur, Othyus Jeffers, Larry Owens, Yi Jianlian and Kevin Seraphin on the floor. Yes, it was garbage time at Verizon Center, and this time it was Washington with the insurmountable lead. The Wizards cruised past the Hawks for a 115-83 win on Saturday night.

Fans were streaming for the exits during the fourth-quarter T-shirt toss. Incredible. It's tempting to say that this win was more the product of a no-show by Atlanta, who did not display any hint of caring. So tempting, I went ahead and wrote that in the last update on this stream. But let's credit the Wizards. They put their foot on Atlanta's throat in the fourh quarter, which was an absolute slaughter. To have effectively closed out this game without any drama is a positive for a team that hasn't been in this situation often this season.

Andray Blatche continues to put up numbers, going for 23 points on 9 for 15 shooting. John Wall pitched in with 19 points and 17 assists.
