Free NBA Pick
The Wizards took a 2-1 lead in this series with a win in Game 3 with Paul Pierce hitting the game winner at the buzzer. Washington won the game even without All Star PG John Wall, who is likely out the rest of this series. The Wizards are 2-3 this season without him in the lineup. The Hawks came back from a big deficit in Game 3 mainly from their reserves. The starts need to play better tonight than they did in Game 3 when they only totaled 51 points on 37.5% shooting.
The Wizards are rolling, as they have a 2-1 lead in this series and have home court advantage. They have won 6 of their 7 playoff games this season and have won all 3 at home. Still, Atlanta will play better than they did in Game 3 and while they may win the Wizards will at least cover the spread.
