Wizards send Hawks to another loss


There would be no comeback this time for the Hawks. The Wizards ran away to a 113-94 victory on Saturday at the Capital One Center.

A night after the Hawks (2-11) came back from 19 down to tie the Pistons they couldn’t mount a similar rally against the Wizards. Washington’s bench players opened the fourth quarter with a 12-0 run for an 88-67 lead and the Hawks couldn’t recover. The losing margin was their largest of the season. 

Taurean Prince led the Hawks with 15 points. Bradley Beal had 19 points for the Wizards (7-5).
