Josh Smith, JaVale McGee and Al Thornton put together some of the season’s most impressive dunks from the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. Saturday night, but it was the Hawks who came away with the all-important victory in the end.
Smith led all scorers with 29 points and added 16 rebounds as the Hawks held the youthful Wizards to just 92 points on the night.
The Hawks controlled the boards, out-rebounding their athletic counterparts 45 to 33 on the night.
Wizards’ lightning quick rookie sensation John Wall finished with 18 points to go along with 6 rebounds and 6 assists in a losing effort.
