The Washington Wizards are looking for their second straight road win on Friday night, playing on a back-to-back. This is the second game since they traded Nick Young and Javale McGee. Nene is not yet active for Washington, as he still has to pass a physical, but the Wizards are still up four points on the Atlanta Hawks at the half
This trip has seen much-improved play on the offensive end, as the Wizards have shot the ball well and been efficient. They are once again shooting well in Atlanta, drilling 71 percent from behind the arc and almost 54 percent from the field. John Wall and Roger Mason lead Washington with ten points each. Mason continues to see a lot more minutes, and he has taken full advantage providing plenty of scoring punch off the bench. Wall also has seven assists and five rebounds.
Joe Johnson has been the one Hawk to really go off on the offensive end, hitting four of five three-pointers so far. But the new-look Wizards continue to hold their own out on the road. They will have to continue the offensive efficiency to pull out the win.
