(NBA) Washington closer to playoff berth
(03-30 13:20)

John Wall scored 25 points, Drew Gooden had 16 as Washington inched closer to its first playoff spot since 2008 with a 101-097 win over free-falling Atlanta.
Washington entered the game needing a win and a loss by the New York Knicks on Sunday to make the playoffs.
Wall scored 13 points in the last 7:16 of the third quarter and the Wizards finally escaped the pesky Hawks, who have lost six straight and 20 of 26.
Jeff Teague scored 19 points and Paul Millsap 17 for Atlanta.
Washington followed up a 13-point win over Eastern Conference leader Indiana on Friday with a win over the Hawks, who lead the Knicks by 1-1/2 games for the final playoff berth in the East. --AP
