In what has already been a tight series, the Atlanta Hawks will look to even things up on the road against the Washington Wizards tonight. The Wizards, who posted one of the best regular season performances in recent franchise history, are a high tempo team that are difficult to keep up with.
Washington’s offense runs through John Wall, as we saw in Game 1. He scored 15 of his 32 points in the third quarter and added 14 assists overall to the mix, as well. The Hawks will need to find a way to slow down the elite scorer to notch the series up at one apiece.
The Hawks were able to control the first half of Game 1 and even went into the break with a 48-45 lead. The Wizards’ big third quarter changed the game and left Atlanta in their wake for most of the second half. Dennis Schroder led the way for the Hawks, putting up 25 points.
The Hawks will look to limit turnovers and play smarter basketball to stick with Wall and the likes of Bradley Beal, Markieff Morris, and Otto Porter.
With the stage set for the second game in the series, let’s take a look at all the ways to watch the game tonight at the Verizon Center.
