Around the time they entered the locker room after their 114-93 victory Monday over the two-time defending champion Miami Heat's B team, the Washington Wizards were feeling good on two fronts. First, the win helped them hold on to the sixth seed and move within one-and-a-half1/2 games of the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference. And second, the Atlanta Hawks entered the fourth quarter against the seventh-place Charlotte Bobcats with a 15-point lead. But by the time the locker room had cleared, leaving only John Wall remaining to speak to reporters, the Bobcats had rallied to defeat the Hawks, 95-93, on a running jumper by Chris Douglas-Roberts, making sure the final day of the regular season will matter.

Arn Tellem confirmed an entry he wrote for the Huffington Post Web site, in which he said Johnson "announced his intention to re-sign with the Hawks for six more years." Tellem wrote that Johnson chose to remain in Atlanta over Chicago and New York, where he would have been reunited with Mike D'Antoni , his former coach in Phoenix. The Hawks could pay him nearly $120 million, while other teams could give Johnson, a four-time All-Star, only five years and pay him about $25 million less.

The Atlanta Hawks had something to prove after an embarrassing home loss. They had no trouble making their point at home against the hapless Washington Wizards last night. Joe Johnson scored 22 points and the Hawks (30-21) led from start to finish, erasing the memory of a dismal blowout by the Los Angeles Clippers with a 111-90 rout of the undermanned Wizards (11-41). Atlanta raced to a 9-1 lead before most of the sparse crowd had even settled into its seats. The Hawks pushed the margin as high as 22 points in the second quarter against an injury-marred team that has managed the modest feat of back-to-back wins only once this season.
