Kelly Oubre Jr. gets $25K fine for kicking ball into stands

Beal finished with 31 points, 16 on 6-of-9 shooting in the final period.

Washington guard John Wall said, "We're supposed to protect home court. We have to do a better job of taking care of the ball, especially in the fourth quarter".

With the game tied, Wall and Beal took over scoring 22 of the Wizards final 25 points.

John Wall celebrates with Marcin Gortat.

"When he shoots it", Wall said of that shot, "it's game over". Washington has held the Hawks to only 5/29 (17.2%) on catch-and-shoot opportunities overall, way below their 37.5% regular season mark. Game 2 was greatly affected by Markieff Morris, Otto Porter, Jr., Jason Smith and Kelly Oubre, Jr. picking up early fouls. The Hawks won't get far if Howard plays this poorly, so expect them to look for him more often in Game 3 on Saturday. Gortat has outplayed Atlanta center Dwight Howard in the first two games of the series.

He will compete in a run-off with Republican candidate Karen Handel , who finished second with 19.5 per cent of the vote. Georgia's 6th District has elected Republicans to the House since the late 1970s.

Westbrook delivered a triple-double of 51 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds but couldn't get the ball to drop when it counted.

The fans at Verizon Center did not seem pleased with the number of fouls called, which slowed the game flow. In the third quarter, many voices in the sellout crowd of 20,356 joined in full-throated chants of derision directed at the officials. Atlanta has only made 11 of 45 3-point attempts, and only one player has shot 35% or better in Taurean Prince.

Washington coach Scott Brooks said before traveling to Atlanta on Friday that Mahinmi's strained left calf was re-evaluated and has improved but he "definitely won't play the next few games". "The Dwight we seen in the first game, it was probably sleeping Dwight or sick Dwight, and the next game, tomorrow, he's going to be really furious, so it's going to be a much tougher game for us". "Just a little bit of a gut feel". "We were missing a lot of shots", said Beal.

However, throughout the game, one thought continued to strike me.

According to Millsap, Atlanta has a big edge when both teams play with smaller lineups, something Washington was forced to do as fouls accumulated.
