The series between the Washington Wizards and the Atlanta Hawks has been nothing but competitive. This game was no different as it came down to the wire with the Washington Wizards just barely easing out a victory 103 to 99 to win a record of 3-2 in the series. Bradley Beal lead the way in scoring for the Wizards. Beal ended with 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 assists. John Wall ended the game with a double double, ending the night with 20 points, 14 assists, and 6 rebounds.  Otto Porter also ended the night with 17 points, so he had a pretty good outing.  Atlanta’s point guard Dennis Schroeder ended with 29 points, 2 steals, and 11 assists.  Paul Millsap for Atlanta ended with 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 assists. The Wizards are going to try to win game six, so that it does not come down to sudden death with the last game.  If they take this next game, Atlanta will be going on to play the first-seed Cleveland Cavaliers.
