The Washington Wizards took game two at home with another victory against the Atlanta Hawks. It was another outstanding game for the Wizards' duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal, as they combined for 63 of Washington's 109 points. After a seven point win on Sunday afternoon, the Wizards won 109-101 over the Hawks on Wednesday, as they now lead the series 2-0. The series will continue on Saturday.

John Wall and Bradley Beal were unstoppable

John Wall had 32 points, five rebounds and nine assists, while shooting 9 of 20 from the field. Bradley Beal played a big 42 minutes and had 31 points, three assists and three steals with 12 field goals made on 27 attempts.

Beal also scored four three pointers, while shooting 40 percent from downtown. Marcin Gortat had a double-double with 14 points and ten rebounds, as he added 5 big blocks to his stat sheet. Jason Smith added eight points and eight rebounds, while coming off the bench, and Brandon Jennings scored ten points off the bench. Markieff Morris had some foul trouble, as he played just 20 minutes and scored only three points.

Paul Millsap was a leading scorer for the Hawks, as he had a double-double with 27 points and ten rebounds. Millsap shot 14 of 15 from the Free Throw Line and added four assists, two steals and a block in 35 minutes on the floor. Dennis Schroeder had 23 points, four rebounds and six assists, while shooting 8 of 21 from the field, but only 1 of 8 from the outside.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 19 points for the Hawks, while Dwight Howard had a disappointing game with just six points and seven rebounds in 19 minutes on the floor. The Hawks' bench had a pretty inefficient scoring night, as they were outscored by the Wizards' bench 25-14.

A festival of free throws

Paul Millsap said after game one that the Hawks were playing basketball and the Wizards were playing MMA, as he was unhappy with some rough physical plays by the home team.

Markieff Morris answered: "If that was MMA, game two will be a double MMA." Obviously, that was the case in game two, as these two teams combined for 71 free throw attempts. The Wizards shot 24 of 33 from the free throw line, while the Hawks made 33 free throws out of 38 attempts, but the visitors couldn't find the range, as they shot only 4 of 20 from the three point line.

They also had 18 turnovers in the game.

The next game is on the schedule for Saturday, at 5:30 pm, as the series will move to Atlanta.
