Teague leads Hawks past Wizards 106-101 to tie series

WASHINGTON (AP) – Finally looking a bit more like a No. 1 seed than the team that’s been so-so in the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks beat the Washington Wizards 106-101 on Monday night behind Jeff Teague’s 26 points, including a key 3, to even their second-round series at two games apiece.

    

Two days after hitting a buzzer-beater to win Game 3, Washington’s Paul Pierce missed a 3-point attempt that would have tied the score with less than 10 seconds left.

    

Al Horford had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Paul Millsap added 19 points, six assists and five rebounds, as three of Atlanta’s four All-Stars played significant roles.

    

Washington’s lone All-Star, point guard John Wall, missed a third consecutive game with a broken left hand.

    

Game 5 is Wednesday night at Atlanta.
