Wizards 90, 76ers 87

David West scored 31 points and George Hill added 21, leading host Indiana past Chicago in a Central Division showdown.
Indiana (38-22) has won seven of its last eight games, going 6-1 since the All-Star break, and holds a four-game lead over second-place Chicago.
The Bulls were led by Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler, who each had 20 points. Chicago fell behind late in the first quarter and spent most of the rest of the game trying to play catch-up.
The Bulls finally tied the score at 72 on Luol Deng’s 8-footer early in the fourth and again at 80 when Butler made two free throws with 7:04 left.
Lakers 99, Hawks 98
Kobe Bryant scored 11 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter and hit the go-ahead layup with 9 seconds left, leading host Los Angeles back to .500 for the first time in more than two months with a victory over Atlanta.
Steve Blake stole Josh Smith’s final pass in the waning seconds for the Lakers (30-30), who blew a 16-point lead in the second half before Bryant scored their last six points.
After Bryant scored the Lakers’ final basket while driving directly at Smith, Blake swiped Smith’s desperation pass from underneath Los Angeles’ basket. Bryant threw the ball high in the air to run out the clock on Los Angeles’ seventh straight home victory over the Hawks since 2006.
