The First Round series of the 2017 NBA Playoffs between the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks makes its way to Philips Arena on Saturday as part of the NBA’s four-game slate of action.
Atlanta is in desperate need of a win as the series shifts to its home court, currently trailing the Wizards, 2-0.
Despite the early deficit, the Hawks remain confident.
“They have home-court advantage,” Atlanta forward Paul Millsap told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “They played off of that. To us, it’s 0-0. We are going back to Atlanta. We are still confident.”
The Wizards have won five straight games against the Hawks — along with three out of four in the regular season — with the Hawks’ lone win coming at Philips. They’ll look to repeat the success from that lone victory in order to get some momentum that will turn the series around.
