Wall, Beal shine as Wizards topple Hawks

21 April 2017, 03:15 | Andy Ferguson

Each member of the Hawks starting five had a negative plus/minus in Game 1.

"They were the aggressor for more of the 48 minutes than we were and they were probably more physical for more of the 48 minutes than we were", said Budenholzer.

Elsewhere, Eric Gordon and Lou Williams caught fire in the fourth quarter as the Houston Rockets rallied for a 115-111 playoff win over the Oklahoma City Thunder who lost despite another 50-point performance by guard Russell Westbrook. "He's played well for us and I think we're expecting him to have a good game Wednesday". The victor would certainly favor a matchup with the unpredictable Bulls and have their sights set on the Eastern Conference Finals.

For a majority of this one, it looked like the refs were getting in the Wizards' heads, and you couldn't blame them. Dealing with the first blow from the Hawks will be important. A Beal layup put Washington up for good at 96-94 and Wall's free throw with 25 seconds left capped the decisive 16-4 run and put the Wizards ahead 107-98. The Wizards' home crowd voiced its discontent for the officiating throughout the night, and much of it was justified.

The Wizards backcourt made the difference all game, but came up with a key stretch late in the fourth quarter to finish things off. Morris, Kelly Oubre Jr. As noted in Basketball Insiders' Game 2 Preview, there has been criticism of Howard's defense on the roll man in pick and rolls.

Despite the loss, there were a few bright spots for the Hawks. This allowed the All-Star to keep Atlanta in the game with 27 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, including a 14-point third quarter. He was shooting some free throws. Howard shot just six times in Game 1 and was outplayed by Gortat. He last played April 10 at Detroit. Dennis Schroder scored 23 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 19, but Atlanta was 4 of 20 on 3-pointers and committed 18 turnovers.

Schroder rises up for the dunk over several Wizards defenders. First, it was the highest combined scoring game from these two in the postseason - Wall scored 32 and Beal added 31 for a combined 63 points.

Wall earned chants of "M-V-P!" while contributing 32 points and nine assists, including a dish to Beal for his key 3-pointer with 38 seconds remaining that sealed the win for the hosts. He has learned to channel his passion in all the right ways, and the Hawks simply had no answers for his athleticism. "We started to get a lot of stops out in transition and I got into a rhythm of knocking down shots and being more aggressive". He has enjoyed the best season of his career since signing a new contract with the Wizards, and they are incredibly tough to beat when he and Wall are both clicking.

Marcin Gortat controlled the head-to-head matchup with Hawks center Dwight Howard, finishing with had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Wizards.

A minute later, both teams were in the penalty.

Scoring has not come easy to Brandon Jennings since he signed with the Wizards as a free agent on March 1. The Wizards would end the quarter 14/21 from the field and secure the win.
