Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Al Horford scored the go-ahead basket with 21.5 seconds left to lift the Atlanta Hawks to a 93-92 win over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

Hawks guard Kyle Korver canned a 3-pointer with just under two minutes left to tie the game at 89-89, but Alan Anderson knocked down a 3-pointer of his own to give the Raptors a 92-89 lead with 1:09 left.

Horford then knocked down a pair of free throws just under 11 seconds later to pull Atlanta within 92-91.

Korver grabbed John Lucas III's missed jumper at the other end and the Hawks quickly called timeout.

Following the timeout, Josh Smith took the inbounds pass, dribbled to his left, and then found Horford cutting to the basket and Horford slammed it home.

Raptors guard Kyle Lowry drove to the basket with 12.6 seconds left, but was rejected by Horford, and Toronto called a timeout to regroup.

Coming out of the timeout, DeMar DeRozan lost control of the ball, but Anderson came out of a small scrum with the ball and fired up a desperation jumper that hit the front of the rim.

DeRozan, though, grabbed the rebound, but was blocked by Horford, who threw the ball down the court as time expired.
