Home, sweet home: Beal, Wall lead Wizards past Hawks, 103-99

WASHINGTON (AP) John Wall figured the credit went to the down-the-stretch defense displayed by his Washington Wizards.

Neither Dennis Schroder nor coach Mike Budenholzer found any flaws with the way their Atlanta Hawks handled things late.

Either way, the odd manner in which Atlanta seemed to allow the final half-minute or so to slip away while trailing - not fouling Washington to try to extend things; passing around the ball, instead of shooting it, as the clock headed toward zero - left the Wizards on the verge of closing out the teams' Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
