Washington Wizards

The Wizards have been one of the most pesky teams in the NBA Playoffs thus far. They’ll be facing adversity for the first time this postseason as they look to avoid going down 3-2 to the Hawks following their Game Four home loss. Washington had a chance to seize control of the series, but could not get some key defensive stops down the stretch.

Paul Pierce did have a chance to tie the game with the clock winding down, but his shot fell short as he begged for a foul. Pierce finished the game with 22 points.

Bradley Beal showed his toughness as he stepped up for the injured John Wall as he scored a playoff career high of 34 points and dished out 7 assists.

After it was reported that John Wall would miss the entire series, he was shockingly upgraded to questionable for Wednesday’s Game Five contest. Getting Wall back could be just the boost the Wizards need to avoid going down for the first time in the postseason.

Wall has seen the swelling go down in his injured hand and will test it out in shoot around on Wednesday morning, then be examined by doctors before making a final decision on his status.

Atlanta Hawks

Paul Millsap came up clutch as he was back at 100% for Game 4 after he battled the flu in Game Three as he dropped in 18 points in the win. He’ll look to have a repeat performance in Game Five as Atlanta tries to control home court advantage and take a 3-2 series lead.

Al Horford also had a bounce back game as he went for 18 and 10 in the Game 4 win. Horford has been the major key for Atlanta this series as he’s played exceptionally well in both of their wins. In Game 2, he went for 18 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds.

As a team, Atlanta had 30 assists on 41 made field goals Monday. Their plan of attack seemed to be drive to the bucket, kick it out and drill 3 pointers.

PG Jeff Teague had his best post season performance going for 26 points and 8 assists. If John Wall returns for Game 5, he’ll have to step up his defensive play as he will have the duties of guarding him.

Kyle Korver will hope to get himself going as well as he’s struggled the past two games scoring just 6 points in each game.

  • Wizards are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
