Wizards Vs. Hawks: Frustrated John Wall Asked For One Starter To Get Taken Out

The Wizards were completely man-handled by the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night, and the final scoreline of 101-83 might not accurately convey how one-sided this game was. The odd thing about this game is that it was the starters, not the bench as sometimes happens, that let the team down with their play tonight. According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, at one point in the game John Wall even implored Flip Saunders to take one of the starters out of the game, although it isn't entirely clear who he meant.

“You’ve got to find that chemistry. That’s the only way you’re going to win in this league, is if your starting five, or your main guys can find a chemistry and play together,” Wall said afterward. “We do it in practice, but practice don’t mean nothing if you’re going against each other. Got to do it when you’re going against other opponents.”

Wizards Vs. Hawks Final Score: Washington Moves To 0-2, 101-83

The Washington Wizards were hoping to rebound from a loss to open the 2011 NBA season, but instead they fall to the Atlanta Hawks 101-83. The Hawks jumped out to a nine point lead after the first quarter and continued to build their lead. The Wizards simply put the Hawks on the free throw line way too many times, as the Hawks shot 28 of 35 from the line.

The Wizards fought back a bit in the second half, but the deficit was just too much for the team to overcome. John Wall picked up 22 points and six assists while Nick Young picked up 21 points off the bench. The Hawks got contributions from Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, and Josh Smith who picked up 18, 17, and 15 respectively.
