Korver, Hawks beat winless Wizards

ATLANTA (AP) - Kyle Korver hit a long 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining in overtime and the Atlanta Hawks beat Washington 101-100, extending the Wizards' franchise-worst start to 0-10.

Korver, who had 16 points, hit his fifth 3-pointer after Kevin Seraphin's baseline jumper gave Washington a 100-98 lead.

Following Korver's shot, Seraphin missed a hook shot. Martell Webster rebounded the miss for Washington under the basket and scored on a layup as the buzzer sounded.

One official initially ruled the basket was good. The officials crew then conferred and ruled the basket was late. They confirmed the call with a video review.

The Wizards became only the 13th team in NBA history to open a season with 10 straight losses, according to STATS LLC. The 2009-10 New Jersey Nets had the worst start in NBA history at 0-18.

Seraphin led Washington with 21 points and 10 rebounds. A.J. Price had 14 points.

Josh Smith led Atlanta with 25 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out in overtime. Al Horford had 15 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds. Devin Harris had 13.
