Atlanta Hawks vs Washington Wizards Preview
Tonight the Atlanta Hawks take on the Washington Wizards and the Hawks will be hoping to bounce back after their disappointing last game.
Luckily they shouldn’t have too hard a time doing so, the Wizards are the worst team in the league at the moment and the Hawks have already beaten them twice this season.
Unsurprisingly, the Hawks are the bookies favourites to win with odds of 4/11, the best odds Wizards fans will find are 53/21.
Hawks coach Larry Drew said about the team’s last match that it “Was probably one of our worst games all year from the standpoint of just our energy.”
They were poor in both offense and defence with loading scorer Josh Smith managing a season low three points.
The Wizards have the league’s worst offense at 89.9 points per game and on Saturday hit a season low with a 102-72 loss at Miami.
This was a major setback for a team which seemed to be improving, they managed all three of their wins in the last nine games, including one over the Heat, and each of its previous three losses had been by no more than 6 points.
While the Wizards may produce some magic, it seems likely that tonight’s game will go the way of the Hawks.
