The four-seed Washington Wizards successfully defended the Phone Booth in Game 1, beating the five-seed Atlanta Hawks 114-107. We’ve seen quite a few teams struggle to take care of business on their home court so far in the playoffs, but the Wiz were able to overcome a slow start to pick up the victory. Washington would not be deterred by being down 29-25 after the first quarter and 48-45 at halftime, as they bared down and outscored Atlanta by 10 points in the second half.
Leading the way for the Wizards was John Wall. The four-time All-Star had a monster game, scoring 32 points on 12-of-24 shooting from the floor, grabbing four rebounds, and dishing out 14 assists. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Wall became just the third Wizards player to ever have 30 points and 10 assists in a playoff game, joining Archie Clark and Gilbert Arenas’ crazy ass.

Dennis Schroder and Paul Millsap carried the load for the Hawks, as the duo combined for 44 points. Schroder had 25 points, three rebounds, and nine assists, while Millsap finished with 19 points, two rebounds, and one assist. If the Hawks are going to even things up with a Game 2 win, they will have to cut down on the turnovers. They gave the ball away 19 times in Game 1, making life extremely difficult for themselves.
