— John Wall was dribbling up the court at a frenetic pace, with defenders backpedaling helplessly and teammates gasping to catch up. Wall whirled the ball behind his back to juke Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague and open what appeared to be a clear lane to the basket. But as Wall elevated for a dunk, Hawks forward Josh Smith tracked him down, smashing his shot attempt and sending Wall crashing to the floor. Wall rolled on the ground, holding the back of his head and grimacing.

ATLANTA - - The Washington Wizards, just two games into their season, are already having their mettle tested. After losing to the Atlanta Hawks, 100-89, on Friday night, the Wizards will arrive in Washington for their home opener against the New Jersey Nets tonight with a 1-1 record and perhaps short another All-Star forward. Caron Butler was limited to 17 minutes and didn't play in the second half after suffering a bruised left knee. Butler did not speak with reporters after the game, but coach Flip Saunders said Butler might have injured himself late in the first period, when he dived to the floor to corral a rebound after Gilbert Arenas missed a layup.

When Josh Smith was a senior at Attica (Ind.) High School four years ago, he was a point-making machine. On the football field, he amassed 63 touchdowns and 449 points (four short of the national high school record) through the state championship game. On the basketball court, he averaged 24 points, 12th-best in hoop-rich Indiana, and led Attica to its first state title in any sport. At the Naval Academy, he hasn't scored a point, but he's still making an impact - on defense. So, when the Midshipmen launch their football season against Duke on Sept.
