Mike Scott dropped the hammer on Bradley Beal to help the Hawks defeat the Wizards 105-96 on Wednesday.

Atlanta might be known more for its ball movement and unselfish play than its highlight potential, but Scott showed the East's No. 1 team is fully capable of above-the-rim action too. Midway through the fourth quarter with the Hawks leading 88-79, Scott found himself out in front of the defense during a transition opportunity. Beal did well to give chase but it didn't really matter, as Scott soared above him for the thunderous one-handed slam.

Jeff Teague led the Hawks with a game-high 26 points and eight assists. Scott added five points and three rebounds off the bench.

John Wall paced the Wizards with a team-high 24 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Beal added 23 points and two rebounds.

Atlanta improved to 41-9. Washington fell to 31-19.
