The full guide to watching the 2017 NBA playoffs live stream featuring Game 2 of the Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
In the 2017 NBA playoffs Wednesday night, the Washington Wizards look to take a 2-0 series lead against the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. The teams resume their playoff series in Washington, D.C. following an odd four-day break between Game 1 and Game 2.
The Wizards were led by four-time All-Star John Wall, who scored a playoff-best 32 points, along with 14 assists for his casual double-double in the Wizards Game 1 win over the Hawks. In his NBA playoff debut, Wizards’ forward Markieff Morris added 21 points and seven rebounds in 38 minutes of play, including two highlight-worthy dunks assisted by Wall.
Despite trailing 48-45 at halftime in Game 1, the Wizards were able to fight back as they did so often in the regular season. Wall and Morris combined for 26 third quarter points, outscoring the Hawks 38-28 and even held a commanding 14 point lead.
However, the Hawks wouldn’t go away. Each time the Wizards stretched their lead past 10 points, the Hawks would creep right back, cutting a once 14-point Wizards lead to seven points heading into the final quarter.
Both Kelly Oubre Jr. and Jason Smith will play tonight despite missing Monday’s practice with sore knees, per J. Michael from CSN Mid-Atlantic. Michael later reported that both were able to practice fully Tuesday.
