Through 3 Quarters

The Atlanta Hawks were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Washington Wizards as the Hawks lead 87-77.

Point guard Trae Young (20 points) has been the top scorer for Atlanta. A double-double would be Trae Young’s third in a row.

Shooting guard Bradley Beal has led the way so far for Washington, as he has 22 points.

What to Know

After three games on the road, the Atlanta Hawks are heading back home. Atlanta and the Washington Wizards will face off in a Southeast Division battle at 7:30 p.m. ET Monday at State Farm Arena. Washington should still be riding high after a win, while the Hawks will be looking to right the ship.

Atlanta has to be aching after a bruising 122-94 defeat to the Philadelphia 76ers this past Saturday. Atlanta was down 89-69 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Small forward Cam Reddish (16 points) was the top scorer for Atlanta.

Meanwhile, it may have taken double overtime to finish the job, but the Wizards ultimately got the result they were hoping for this past Saturday with a 115-112 victory over the Boston Celtics. Having forecasted a close win for Washington, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Among those leading the charge for them was shooting guard Bradley Beal, who had 36 points and six assists in addition to seven rebounds.

The Hawks are now 3-3 while Washington sits at 5-1. Two stats to keep an eye on: Atlanta enters the contest with only 17.5 fouls per game on average, good for fourth best in the league. But Washington comes into the matchup boasting the most fouls drawn per game in the league at 21.8. The ref’s whistle might dictate the flow of action in this one.
