WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lou Williams scored a season-high 24 points and Josh Smith had 17 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 100-95 overtime win over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night.
Atlanta (15-7) has won all three meetings with the Wizards (3-19) this season.
After Washington took a 93-92 lead on a jumper by Earl Barron with 3:05 to play in overtime, the Hawks scored six straight points -- capped by DeShawn Steven's 3-pointer -- to go up five with 1:29 to play.
Stevenson and Al Horford each made 1 of 2 free throws, and then Jordan Crawford, who had a triple-double with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, hit a jumper with 48 seconds left to pull Washington to 98-95.
Nene had a jumper blocked by Smith with 9 seconds to play, and Kyle Korver made two free throws to cap the scoring.
