ATLANTA -- The Washington Wizards moved up the Eastern Conference standings with their first win in Atlanta in six years. Chris Pronger Jersey . The Hawks are in a free-fall in the conference and must decide if a trade-deadline move is needed to stop their losing streak. John Wall scored 21 points and Washington recovered after almost blowing a 20-point lead to beat the reeling Hawks 114-97 on Wednesday night. "We needed it real bad," said Washingtons Trevor Ariza, who made an improbable 75-foot shot to end the third quarter. "Especially if were trying to make the playoffs these last 28 games. This one was big for us. Especially knowing that we havent won here in a while. I think that gives us a little bit of momentum." Paul Millsap had 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Elton Brand, a fill-in starter at centre, had 20 points and 11 boards for the Hawks, who have lost seven straight. Trevor Ariza and Bradley Beal each had 19 points for the Wizards, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Washington ended an 11-game skid in Atlanta, winning for the first time since Jan. 11, 2008. The Wizards moved a half-game ahead of Atlanta in the battle for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. "We know its a two- or three-game spread from the third spot and its two or three games away from being in the eighth spot or out of the playoffs, so its definitely a tight race right now," Wall said. "Weve just got to find a way to get on a streak. We havent been on a good streak. I think its time for our team. We deserve a winning streak." The Hawks, who trailed by 20 points in the first half, made a third-quarter charge to twice cut the deficit to one point. The Wizards closed the period with 3-pointers by Martell Webster and Ariza. Arizas 3-pointer was the shot of the game -- a buzzer-beater from near the free throw line on the other end of the floor to end the period. "Once I let it go, it felt good," Ariza said. "I tried to do my best to go to the bench not get too excited because we had another quarter to go. Im just happy we got the win." Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said the 3s by Webster and Ariza turned the momentum. "I think its a very fine margin of error for every team in the NBA," Budenholzer said. "I think we had it down to two. Webster hit a tough 3-pointer from the corner. Then we let our guard down a little bit, and (Ariza) made a shot from the three-quarter court. It went from a two-point game to an eight-point game. That was a tough 15-second stretch." Washington had lost three straight and five of six before beating the Hawks. The Hawks had only nine players in uniform. Gustavo Ayon, who had been the fill-in starting centre, was held out after hurting his right shoulder in Tuesday nights loss at Indiana. Guard DeMarre Carroll missed his third straight game with a left hamstring strain. Brand, 34, who has averaged 16 minutes as a backup, played 35 minutes and set his season high for points, while matching his high for rebounds. Brand wouldnt blame the teams losing streak on a shortage of players. "It seems like were dealing with a myriad of injuries, but we definitely have enough players to win," Brand said. "We need to find a way to win and get this monkey off our back and stay in the race." The Hawks have a severe shortage of players at centre. They already have lost All-Star Al Horford for the season after he had surgery to repair his torn right pectoral muscle. Horfords backup, Pero Antic, is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his right ankle. Budenholzer said the injuries do not add urgency to make a deal before Thursdays trade deadline. Wizards centre Marcin Gortat took advantage of the Hawks lack of size, scoring 14 points with 12 rebounds. Martell Webster had 13 points.

Washington had seven players score in double figures. ... Ariza made five 3-pointers. ... Kyle Korver made his first 3-pointer of the game late in the first half, extending his NBA record to 122 consecutive games with a 3. ... G Cartier Martin, also making his fourth start, filled in for Carroll and scored only four points. Josh Manson Jersey . The Rainbow FlickNext up is the Rainbow Flick, or as you probably know it, the trick that everybody at soccer camp thought they knew how to do. Brendan Guhle Jersey . She was 30. The former British No. 1 died peacefully surrounded by family and friends, the Womens Tennis Association said on its website. The Kyiv-born Baltacha, who represented Britain at the 2012 London Olympics, was diagnosed with the illness in January, two months after retiring from tennis and only weeks after she married her long-time coach Nino Severino. https://www.cheapducks.com/947c-ryan-kesler-jersey-ducks.html . Louis Cardinals have agreed to a one-year contract. It was a slow start, but Canadas mens hockey team surged to a 3-1 win over Norway on Thursday. Drew Doughty, Jamie Benn and Shea Weber all netted goals for Canada in their first game of the Sochi Olympics. Doughty, who scored at 1:47 of the 3rd period, moved up from his defence spot to finish off a play created by Patrick Marleau and Ryan Getzlaf. Benn scored in a shot from the slot with assists from Patrice Bergeron and Doughty at 15:19 of the 2nd period, while Weber scored on a slap shot early in the 2nd period near Norways blue line, beating goalie Lars Haugen. A small surprise was Norway scoring on a redirect goal by Mathis Olimb on a shot that came about after Canada goalie Carey Price misplayed a shoot-in just 22 seconds into the 3rd period, breaking Canadas shuutout. Jakob Silfverberg Jersey. Canada, Norway struggle early on The first period started out rather slowly for the Canadians. An aggressive back-and-forth affair at the start, both Canada and Norway battled for puck possession early on. Yet by the 2nd period, Canada had become dominant, pelting the Norwegians with shots while Norway struggled to fend off the Canadians. Yet Norway stunned the pro-Canadian crowd with a redirect goal by Mathis Olimb on a shot that came about after Canada goalie Carey Price misplayed a shoot-in just 22 seconds into the 3rd period, breaking the shutout. Things started getting rougher between the two teams near the end of the 3rd period, with penalties — including a rare roughing penalty in Olympic-level hockey — being issued for roughing and slashing.
