Hawks expected John Wall’s inevitable scoring burst that came in the third quarter on Tuesday night. Lin had an even stronger response in the fourth.

The veteran guard scored 12 of his 16 points in the final period as the Hawks overcame Bradley Beal’s 29 points for a 118-110 victory over the Washington Wizards.

The Hawks outscored the Wizards 71-52 in the first and fourth quarters combined.

“I thought it was one of our best defensive games,” Lin said. “That gives you a chance.”

Wall, scoreless as Washington trailed throughout the first half, had 10 points in the third period as the Wizards pulled even at 82 entering the fourth.
