Wizards Stay Hot, Advance To 2-0 Series Lead Over Hawks

Many think that this may be the year that the city of Washington has been waiting for. John Wall is playing the best he has his entire career and has all the parts around him to make a championship run.

While they are the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, many NBA fans think that this Washington team is the only team that has a chance of taking down the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Coming off a 114-107 win in game one, the Wizards maintained stride and took game two 109-101.


The Hawks were unable to stop the dual attack from Washington guards Wall and Bradley Beal. Beal exploded in the fourth quarter for 16 of his 31 points. Perhaps the most important shot of the game, a deep three late in the game, came from Beal. As for Wall, he finished with 32 points and nine assists. The home crowd went a long way for this Wizards team as they were trailing going into the fourth quarter 78-74. Wall was also serenaded with “M-V-P” chants as the game came to a close.

This win was nothing less than huge for the Wizards. They have exhibited the poise and strength needed to win an NBA championship and are flicking the switch at the perfect time. The series now shifts back to Atlanta which will resume on Saturday with the Wizards holding a 2-0 lead.

Just like the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference, this Washington Wizards team has quietly put together a great year and are serious championship contenders.
