Wizards Simply Seem To Have Hawks’ Number

The Atlanta Hawks are hoping that a change of scenery can reverse their playoffs series with the Washington Wizards. However, the Wiz have simply been getting the better of the Hawks recently, no matter where they play. The Wizards are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their past five games against the Hawks while posting an average scoring margin of plus-9.6 points per game.

SHARK BITES
  • The visiting team is 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 games between the Hawks and Wizards.
  • The Hawks are 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in the playoffs.
  • The Hawks are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games at home.

Of course, the big reason for this winning streak has been the backcourt tandem of John Wall and Bradley Beal. In their past five games against Atlanta, Wall and Beal have averaged a combined 50 points per game. Wall is potentially the best player in the playoffs and it’s clear he still holds a grudge against Hawks’ point guard Dennis Schroder after Washington was eliminated in the 2015 playoffs by Atlanta.

The Hawks played much better defensively in Game 2 than they did in Game 1, the fourth quarter excluded. However, they continue to turn over the basketball with a combined 38 TOs through the first two games. The biggest individual improvement between Game 1 and 2 was Paul Millsap, as he put in a more well-rounded performance in the second outing.
