After one half at Philips Arena, the Washington Wizards looked poised to pull off their second straight road win. But it was not to be, as the undermanned Wiz came out in the third period flat and cold and the Hawks took full advantage to quickly go up double digits. When it was all said and done, Atlanta finished off Washington with a 102-88 win.

Playing their fourth road game this week, Washington ran out of gas and scored just ten points in the third quarter. Trevor Booker led all Washington scorers with 18 points, while also grabbing nine rebounds. John Wall had a near triple double, scoring 14, dishing nine assists, and grabbing eight boards but the second-year point guard also had an alarming nine turnovers. After three and a half straight games of solid output on the offensive end, Washington just went cold and could not get any stops on the other end to keep it close.

The Wizards will now finally wrap up this road trip on Sunday in Memphis against the Grizzlies.
