The Eastern conference first round playoffs continue Sunday. It’s a 4/5 match up between the Washington Wizards and the Atlanta Hawks.
These two teams faced off four times duirng the regular season. The Washington Wizards won three of the previous four match ups.
The Atlanta Hawks seemed to be playing much better basketball as of late and finished the regular season with momentum winning four of the last five games.
Three of the four wins were over playoff teams, and they beat the Cavaliers twice. The big thing for the Hawks is they need to find a way to slow down the back court of the Wizards. They can’t let both John Wall and Bradley Beal have big games in this one or it will be a long night.
One thing to watch in this game is if Dwight Howard will be able to play. He is probable for this game and if he isn’t able to go it would be a huge loss for the Hawks.
The Washington Wizards are going to be a very dangerous team this playoffs and I don’t think anyone would really be surprised if they were playing in the Eastern Conference finals.
To win this series it’s all going to come down to getting out to the fast start. They also really need to try and push the pace in this game.
If Bradley Beal and John Wall can both have big games in this one I would expect for them to come out on top of this game, and take a 1-0 series leader.
