Video Review: Final possessions in Atlanta’s Game 2 loss to Wizards

Video Review: Final possessions in Atlanta’s Game 2 loss to Wizards

Lets take a closer look at those final possessions. The Hawks are very much in this game at this point trailing by just three points with less than 1:30 to play in regulation. The Wizards go to their bread and butter on this play with the high screen action involving Bradley Beal and Marcin Gortat. Paul Millsap does an excellent job denying Gortat the space that he wants to set the pick and the result is that Kent Bazemore has pretty optimal space to try to stay in front of Beal. However, the skilled Beal is able to use just the threat of the screen to navigate his way to the rim. Dennis...

Wizards vs. Hawks Game 2 final score: Washington scrapes past Atlanta 109-101, takes 2-0 series lead

John Wall and Bradley Beal took over in the fourth quarter as the Wizards overcame a second half deficit and beat the Hawks, 109-101 to take a 2-0 series lead on Wednesday. The House of Guards combined for 63 points, led by Wall with 32 and Beal with 31. Marcin Gortat also notched another double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Wizards protected home court. Just like in Game 1, Washington was able to get out to an early lead in this one, using a 14-0 run to take a 16-6 lead midway through the first quarter. However, the refs were very loose with the whistle throughout the game...

Hawks leave opportunities on the table in 109-101 Game 2 loss to Wizards

Hawks leave opportunities on the table in 109-101 Game 2 loss to Wizards

So close, yet so far away. The Atlanta Hawks were given repeated opportunities to “steal” Game 2 on the road against the Washington Wizards. Despite those chances, the No. 5 seed fell into an 0-2 hole with a 109-101 loss and the Hawks now return home with their backs firmly against the proverbial wall. The night began with the Hawks getting off to a strong start and a 6-2 lead but that positive mojo faded quickly. In fact, the Wizards wrestled it away to the tune of a 14-0 run in response and Marcin Gortat provided the energy for the home team with three blocked shots. Atlanta would...

Wizards vs. Heat final score: Turnovers, Whiteside, and Tyler Johnson too much to overcome in 106-103 loss

The Wizards will have to win out in order to get 50 wins this season. The Wizards lost 106-103 to the Heat on Saturday night in their last home regular season game. Though the Wizards managed to lead early in the game, Hassan Whiteside (30 points/12 rebounds) and James Johnson (15 points/11 rebounds/5 assists) had double doubles, and the Wizards committed 20 turnovers which turned into 21 Heat points. Those performances overshadowed a 21 point performance from Markieff Morris, a double double from Marcin Gortat (11 points/11 rebounds), and a strong performance by Ian Mahinmi, who had 11...
