The 2017 NBA Playoffs roll on with a double-header Wednesday night beginning with Hawks vs. Wizards, Game 5. The game will tip-off earlier than normal, with 6 p.m. ET set for the start time. Despite that, we should expect a wild, rowdy atmosphere for the crucial matchup.
If the early start time does impact the crowd, however, it could nullify the home court advantage the Wizards are expecting.
Atlanta is riding the hot hand and has won two games in a row. They’ll be looking to carry on that momentum, so Washington needs its front court that was a ghost in games 3 and 4 to return to top form.
