ATLANTA — The Hawks wanted there to be no doubt this time. When the Wizards came to visit back on Nov. 21, they took the Hawks to overtime, and came within a split second of a winning on Martell Webster’s catch and shoot at the buzzer. It took an instant replay review for the Wizards to realize that they had in fact lost the game they thought they’d won. But a lot can happen in two weeks. For one, the Wizards came into Phillips Arena on Friday having gotten the winless money off their backs, including a so-called “statement” win over the defending champion Miami Heat on Tuesday at Verizon Center.
