Al Horford drains fadeaway in OT to beat Wizards (VIDEO)

Dec 14, 2013, 12:15 AM EST

Washington defended that pretty well, just a better shot by a very good player.

Tied 99-99 in OT, the Hawks had 1.8 seconds to get off a shot, so it looked like double OT. Al Horford sets a couple (pretty soft) screens on the strong side then fades away to the weak side by the rim and gets a dangerous lob pass — Trevor Booker went for the tip on the pass and missed, still recovered to give some contest on the shot… and it didn’t matter. Horford drained the fadeaway and gets the Hawks the101-99  home win.

Horford finished the game with 34 points on 15-of-23 shooting, plus he had 15 boards.

    The Wiz are playing without 2 starters in Beal and Nene, and are still playing folks tough. When they get at least one of those guys back in the line up, they’ll reel off another good winning streak. In the meantime, they are still fun to watch. Wall had another great behind the back layup move last night that deserves some good press.
