The Wizards have now won five straight to start the playoffs, ripping through the Hawks in the 2nd half of game one behind John Wall and some dubious 4th quarter offense by the home team. Late news, however, is that Wall is out for tonight's game with a wrist injury that he suffered in game one. He returned to action after his fall, but apparently it has become problematic over the last 48 hours, and Wall will sit.
This is an absolute must win for the Hawks, who have frankly not looked good for the last couple of months.
The Warriors won game one fairly easily, as the Grizzlies simply could not slow them down. They shot over 50% and 46% from three in the first game, and there is no way the Grizz can survive shooting like that. Memphis got good offensive contributions from their front court of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, but without Mike Conley especially, they struggled on the perimeter. Conley was up in the air in terms of his availability for tonight as of this writing. Hopefully he can go and not be too hampered by his face and mask.
