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.

Chris Sheridan

Who saw that win by the Wizards coming? A couple of our guys, based upon their 2nd round predictions: sheridanhoops.com/2015/05/03/she…

Michael Lee

If you're having trouble figuring out the #wizards this postseason just tell yourself this: Late January, February & March never happened.

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal had Vaseline to cover scratches below his right eye after that kick from Kent Bazemore in the first half #wizards

Those Wiz kids looking good #DMV#100

Brian Mahoney

WizarOAds. O and A silent. RT @Washington Wizards The #Wizards are the first team in NBA history to win four consecutive Game 1's on the road

Gery Woelfel

Ex-Bucks GM Ernie Grunfeld's decision to sign Paul Pierce has been huge for Wizards. Pierce with 19 pts in today's win.

Joseph Goodman

Paul Pierce will eat it. RT @AminNBA Not sure what's going to happen to my heart if it's a Wizards-Cavs ECF.

Gery Woelfel

Ex-Bucks Gooden (12 pts, 5 Rebs) and Sessions (5 pts, 3 Rebs) big off bench in Wizards win.

Eddie Johnson

Hawks can't overuse the 3 in playoffs to get back into games its fools gold and the @Washington Wizards showed them why. @Jaryd Wilson #WizHawks

Steve Luhm

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.

Sergio Vera

Pues parece que los Wizards tienen ganas de tocar lo que no suena. 98-104 en el Game 1 vs Hawks. John Wall y Beal, de nuevo decisivos #NBA

Zach Lowe

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

Zach Lowe

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.

Rodney Purvis

Say what you want the Wiz find ways to win games.

Mark Followill

Wizards are the first team to win four straight series openers on the road...Chicago & Indiana last yr, Toronto & Atlanta this yr

Jaryd Wilson

Tough second half as the Wizards get Game 1. Game 2 Tuesday night. http://t.co/7w2s7Y47eQ

Josh Newman

Cavs-Wizards would be the optimal Eastern Conference finals series........

Roberto Martin

Final @Jaryd Wilson 98-@Washington Wizards 104. A partir de la defensa, los Wizards ganaron y arrebataron la localía. Beal 28pts. Serie: ATL 0-1. #NBA

Raul Barrigon

Polish Hammer seals the deal. Huge road win by the Wizards. Washington was Beal-less during the 4th quarter.

Mark Followill

Two nice John Wall assists to seal G1 for the Wizards, that and Atlanta going 5/28 FG in 4Q

Chris Vivlamore

Final: Wizards 104, Hawks 98. Wizards lead series, 1-0. #ATLHawks

Jason Walker

Losing home court will not mean a lost series for this team. Hats off to the Wizards, who showed the essence of playoff basketball.

Michael Lee

This John Wall-Randy Wittman tandem has never lost a Game 1. #wizards

David Aldridge

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.

Mike Wise

Time to acknowledge what an accomplished, slow-down, half-court, playoff PG @John Wall has become. Remember when he went 100mph. #wizards.

Ryan Wolstat

Wiz steal homecourt advantage. Hawks had chances as Washington went small, but couldn't convert. Going to be a physical series

Ohm Youngmisuk

Are the Wizards ever going to lose a playoff game on the road again? LOL twitter.com/MrMichaelLee/s…

Abraham Romero

96-102 a 14.6 segundos del final. Parece que los Wizards van a asaltar el Philips Arena de Atlanta. es.global.nba.com/boxscore/#!/00… #NBAOficial

Michael Lee

Randy "The Road Playoff GOAT" Wittman about to go 8-1 on the road in the postseason #wizards

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks chose not to foul in the finla minute. Wizards score to go up 102-96 with 14.6 seconds left. #ATLHawks

Tony Jones

The Wizards just stole Game 1....

Mike Wise

The Wizards have to remember the clock is their friend with a lead and the ball with 1:24 left.

Doug Smith

Clips-Spurs it ain't and there's a lot of JV to Wizards-Hawks but it is compelling in a weird way

Chris Vivlamore

Wizards 98, Hawks 96 with 1:21 left. #ATLHawks

Abraham Romero

Esto está emocionante: 91-98 resisten los Wizards a 2:59 del final. Sorpresa a la vista. es.global.nba.com/boxscore/#!/00… #NBAOficial

Jason Walker

Wizards main adjustment has been attacking with Wall and making everything while letting the Hawks shoot open threes. It’s worked this half.

Michael Lee

John Wall coming with that help side swat on Paul Millsap. When he plays with that rage, it's a sight to behold #wizards

Kurt Helin

Bradley Beal leaves Hawks-Wizards game with apparent ankle injury (VIDEO) dlvr.it/9fZwVy

Kris Willis

Wizards going iso-Wall down the stretch here is helping Atlanta

Mike Prada

Hawks may need to consider trapping ball screens if the Wizards keep getting this much separation.

Abraham Romero

Se ha hecho bastante daño Bradley Beal en el tobillo derecho y se va. Palo para los Wizards, sin el mejor d... vine.co/v/eZz7r057exq

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal in serious pain. Crying on the way to the locker room #wizards

Michael Lee

Looks like Bradley Beal rolled his right ankle after landing on Al Horford's foot. He's limping back to the locker room #wizards
