The Atlanta Hawks look to rebound from a disappointing loss to the Warriors when they take on the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center.
The Atlanta Hawks look to get back on track Tuesday night when they hit the road for a matchup against the Washington Wizards. Atlanta has won the two previous meetings against the Wizards this season and have dominated the series of late winning 17 of the last 18 meetings.
The Hawks saw their own three-game winning streak snapped last time as they suffered one of their worst losses of the season falling to the Warriors 115-93. Atlanta will be looking for much more from Josh Smith who finished with three points on 1-12 shooting against the Warriors. Smith has been really good against the Warriors this season averaging 24 points and 13.5 boards in the two contests.
The Wizards have lost three straight and are coming off of a 102-72 loss to the Miami Heat. Washington has struggled in all facets of the game this season and are still awaiting the return of John Wall from a knee injury.
