Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Al Horford tied a career-high with 34 points, including the game-winning jumper as time expired in overtime, and the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Washington Wizards for the 11th straight time at Philips Arena, 101-99, on Friday night.

Paul Millsap scored 16 points with 11 rebounds, Korver also netted 16, and Jeff Teague added 12 points and seven assists.

Trevor Booker had 24 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, while Martell Webster and John Wall scored 15 and 13, respectively, for Washington, which hasn't won in Atlanta since Jan. 11, 2008.

Trevor Ariza buried a triple to put Washington up 93-92 with 2:12 to go in the extra session and Korver answered with a three of his own to put Atlanta back in front.

Teague then hit a floater on the following possession to extend the lead to four with 1:24 to play.

Booker hit back-to-back jumpers around a Teague basket to cut the deficit to 99-97. Shelvin Mack missed a three-point heave with 12.9 seconds left and Booker wrestled in the rebound to give Washington another chance.

Wall drove the lane and dropped it off to Booker, who went up and under for a clutch reverse layup to tie the game with 1.8 seconds left.

After a timeout, Pero Antic lobbed the inbounds pass cross-court to Horford, who caught the ball on the baseline and buried a 10-foot jumper as time expired.
