The Wizards have won all 5 of their playoff games this season and while they were under .500 on the road in the regular season they have won all 3 of their playoff games away from the Nation’s Capital. In Game 1 the Wizards did not have a great shooting night, but they held the Hawks to 37.8% shooting from the floor.
The 4 All Stars for the Hawks in Al Horford, Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, and Kyle Korver were a combined 22/65 from the field. The Washington G duo of Bradley Beal and John Wall combined for 46 points in Game 1 and I see them having another good game. The Wizards may not get the win tonight, but they will cover the 6.5-point spread.
