Wiz are the first team in NBA playoff history to win four consecutive road game 1s, with only game 1s on the road counting in the streak.
Those Wiz kids looking good #DMV#100
Ex-Bucks GM Ernie Grunfeld's decision to sign Paul Pierce has been huge for Wizards. Pierce with 19 pts in today's win.
Ex-Bucks Gooden (12 pts, 5 Rebs) and Sessions (5 pts, 3 Rebs) big off bench in Wizards win.
Nice job, ABC. No replay of game's key play. Wizards extend late lead on a layup after great screen or offensive foul. We'll never know.
Thought Bud needed to foul there, down 4 with about 33 seconds left and Wiz w/ a full shot clock. Wall and Beal were great. Hope BB is OK
What a win for Wiz. They made the plays/shots ATL's D forced them into, and pushed for even better shots when they could. Wonderful game.
Say what you want the Wiz find ways to win games.
Wizards are the first team to win four straight series openers on the road...Chicago & Indiana last yr, Toronto & Atlanta this yr
Tough second half as the Wizards get Game 1. Game 2 Tuesday night. http://t.co/7w2s7Y47eQ
Cavs-Wizards would be the optimal Eastern Conference finals series........
Polish Hammer seals the deal. Huge road win by the Wizards. Washington was Beal-less during the 4th quarter.
Two nice John Wall assists to seal G1 for the Wizards, that and Atlanta going 5/28 FG in 4Q
Losing home court will not mean a lost series for this team. Hats off to the Wizards, who showed the essence of playoff basketball.
If Wiz hold on for this win, may want to think about resting Beal in Game 2, with three days off before Game 3 Saturday.
Wiz steal homecourt advantage. Hawks had chances as Washington went small, but couldn't convert. Going to be a physical series
The Wizards just stole Game 1....
The Wizards have to remember the clock is their friend with a lead and the ball with 1:24 left.
Clips-Spurs it ain't and there's a lot of JV to Wizards-Hawks but it is compelling in a weird way
Wizards main adjustment has been attacking with Wall and making everything while letting the Hawks shoot open threes. It’s worked this half.
Wizards going iso-Wall down the stretch here is helping Atlanta
Hawks may need to consider trapping ball screens if the Wizards keep getting this much separation.
