The Washington Wizards' season opener did not go as planned on Monday, as they blew a 21-point lead in a 90-84 home loss to the New Jersey Nets. They hope their second game will go better, as they travel to Atlanta to face the Hawks on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
The Hawks are coming off a 106-70 blowout victory over the same Nets team that defeated the Wizards on Monday. Five players scored in double figures, including Vladimir Radmanovic, who scored a team-high 17 points off the bench. The Hawks broke the game open in the first quarter and easily put away a tired Nets team.
Atlanta is coming off a 45-37 season and a second-round playoff appearance. They defeated the Orlando Magic, 4-2, in the first round before falling in six games to the Chicago Bulls.
