John Wall leads Wizards to playoff win

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

He went 17-for-43 from the floor and 15-for-18 from the charity stripe in the first 50-plus point triple-double in National Basketball Association playoff history in the loss.

Wall averaged 1.1 points per possession on Sunday, with that increasing to 1.47 points per possession after factoring in his assists.

The series shifts to thr Philips Arena in Atlanta on Saturday, in what has to be a must-win situation for the Hawks at home.

"That's the last time I was in the playoffs".

Having Wall and Beal healthy helped as well.

McCollum scored a playoff career-best 41 points and Lillard had 34, but the Warriors made the crucial big plays on both ends down the stretch with Portland playing without injured center Jusuf Nurkic.

I understand that the Hawks are in desperate need of a backup point guard and they need some ball handling with Schroder off the court, but Jose Calderon played 8 minutes in a playoff game in 2017. Visible were "Chyna", "RIP Lil Sis" and "I love you". "The intensity was sky high".

The rookie's 3-pointer pulled Atlanta within 108-103 with 2:07 left, but Washington countered with four free throws in a row including Wall's pair with 1:13 remaining.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Kevin Durant patted his chest after two big baskets in the fourth quarter and let everybody know "I got this!"

"He can score on the perimeter and in the post".

There was a lot of speculation during the offseason about why the Wizards hired Scott Brooks to coach the team. "If we play hard, we should win the game".

"It's all a part of the game, man", Morris said. There is no word on whether or not he will play in game two, but he his presence will be something to watch for. He can take over quarters. He's a tremendous competitor. Outside of Andre Roberson's bizarrely hot shooting, they got very little from their role players in game one.

Millsap was regularly complaining to the officials about foul calls instead of fighting to get respect from Morris.

While Morris was a great threat for the Wizards on offense, he seemed to break Millsap.

Wall was on defense and tipped a pass. Thanks to 23 points and almost 11 assists per game this year, Wall catapulted the Wizards to a 49-33 finish and spent a good portion of the year fighting for a top 3 seed in the conference. Wall had 32 points and 14 assists, while Beal added 22 points.

Millsap took issue with the way Morris and the Wizards tried to overpower him in the Hawks' 114-107 loss.

In game-1, the Hawks were equally scoring through the second quarter but lagged 7 points by the start of the fourth. Prince didn't make his first career start until March 26, but he has played well enough for coach Mike Budenholzer to keep him in the lineup along with Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Rockets erased a 15-point deficit to take a 2-0 lead after game two of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Seven former Cats will take the court to represent seven different teams in this year's National Basketball Association playoffs.

James Harden scored 35 points and the Houston Rockets overcame 51 points from Russell Westbrook in the highest-scoring triple-double in playoff history, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-111 on Wednesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round Western Conference playoff series.
