Al Horford had a monster game on Friday, posting 34 points on 15-of-23 shooting with 15 rebounds, but the only shot that mattered was the mid-range fadeaway he hit at the horn to lift his Atlanta Hawks to victory over the Washington Wizards.

Pero Antic inbounded the ball with the Hawks tied 99-99 and 1.8 seconds remaining while Horford set a slip screen before sprinting to the left block for the game-winning jumper.

The shot lifts Atlanta (12-11) above .500, making them just one of three Eastern Conference teams with that distinction, while Washington drops to 9-12.
