Washington exercised some demons by winning their first game in Boston in over three years with a Christmas Day upset. Remember, Washington played four games in Boston in last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinals, so those three years of losing ran up a nine-game losing streak.
All of the Wizards’ important players were big in Boston. It helped to have John Wall and Otto Porter on the court and looking healthy. Both of those guys played a big role in the Wizards holding off the Celtics and eventually creating some separation in the second half.
It’s about this time of the year when the conference standings begin to start taking shape. In the East, Boston, Cleveland and Toronto are going to be in a three-team race until the end, unless there are major injuries to speak of.
Washington is batting Detroit and Indiana in the middle of the conference. You could also throw Milwaukee into the mix there, but it feels like the Bucks are just lacking.
The Wizards are going to need a clean bill of health to separate from Detroit and Indiana, especially the Pacers, who I like over Detroit to give Washington a run.
The Wiz are healthy now and they ought to take advantage for the time being with an easy one against the Hawks.
Dennis Schroder returned to the lineup in Atlanta’s last game before the holiday to lead his team to a win against Dallas. Schroder scored a career-high 33 points that included 27 in the second half. He hit a big three down the stretch to ice the win.
The Hawks have eight wins and none of them are particularly impressive.
They beat the Cavaliers back when the Cavs were sputtering. Other than that, they have two wins over the Mavs and one each over Sacramento, New York, Brooklyn, Orlando and Miami.
Atlanta finished December with three tough games: this one, at Toronto and then home against Portland. January brings an interesting string of games, beginning with five in a row on the road and ending with nine out of ten at home.
The Hawks have yet to win two in a row this season. Here’s their eighth chance.
