Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Hawks provided the remedy for another slumping team. Gilbert Arenas led six players in double figures with 29 points and Steve Blake scored a season-high 17 off the bench as the Washington Wizards got back on track with a 122-93 rout of the Hawks, who suffered their league-worst 53rd loss. With just four wins in their previous 12 games, the Wizards entered in search of their first winning streak since capturing four in a row from February 5-11. They got off to a good start in this one, scoring 10 of the game's first 12 points and maintaining a lead throughout the first quarter. The Hawks opened the second period with a 9-0 run sparked by Tony Delk's six points to take their first and only lead of the game, 29-28, with 8:48 to go. But Blake scored the next eight points, including a pair of 3-pointers, to put Washington ahead for good. "I was able to get some open looks," Blake said. "I stayed into my shots and made some shots. It was great ball movement by the team and I was fortunate to knock them down." "Stevie had it going," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "He feels good about himself." The Wizards led by as many as 16 points midway through the third quarter before the Hawks cut the deficit to 79-73 with 26 seconds remaining on a 3-pointer by rookie Josh Childress. But Larry Hughes capped a 24-2 burst with a dunk with 5:18 to go in the fourth to give Washington a commanding 108-80 cushion. Arenas scored 11 points in the surge. "At one point, you could see they were frustrated, so we just kept attacking," Arenas said. "We kept going at them and they didn't respond." "The fourth quarter was just atrocious," Atlanta coach Mike Woodson admitted. "We didn't get anything accomplished." In addition to losing control of the game, the Hawks also lost Woodson, who picked up two technical fouls in a span of less than three minutes and was ejected for the first time as coach of the Hawks. "I'd had enough and I wanted to go to the locker room," Woodson said. Arenas and Hughes combined for 10 steals for Washington. Hughes scored 11 of his 23 points in the third quarter and added seven assists the help lead the Wizards to season highs in points and field-goal percentage (60 percent). "We just came out and tried to play hard," Arenas said. "It doesn't matter what the record is on any team. They played hard and I think we matched their energy." The duo of Arenas and Hughes outscored Atlanta's starters, 52-39. "Our first unit was just awful to start the game," Woodson said. "I thought our second unit came back and got us back in the game. Then I went back to some of the first-unit guys and it didn't get any better." Etan Thomas scored 15 points, Jared Jeffries added 14 and eight rebounds and Kwame Brown scored 13 for the Wizards, who were 8-of-12 from the arc and outscored the Hawks in the paint, 54-34. "We're bigger than they were inside," Brown said. "They went small in the fourth because Al Harrington can be tough to deal with at the 4-spot. But he's a little smaller on the defensive end, so I wanted to go at him." Delk scored 16 points and Childress 15 for Atlanta, which has dropped four straight to Washington.
