Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE
The Atlanta Hawks snapped a four-game losing streak on Friday with a 103-95 win over the Utah Jazz. They hope to make it two in a row and a season sweep against the Washington Wizards on Saturday.
Devin Harris returned to action on Wednesday and helped the Atlanta Hawks snap a four-game skid on Friday with 24 points and five assists. The Washington Wizards are looking for similar returns as John Wall is expected to make his season debut on Saturday against the Hawks.
Wall missed the first 33 games of the season with a knee injury that he suffered over the summer. The Wizards can use him as they enter the game with a 5-28 record. Atlanta has all three meetings with Washington this season although two of the games required overtime.
The Hawks are hoping that Friday's come from behind win can get them back headed in the right direction. Although their comeback attempt was successful on Friday, they have now trailed by double figures in each of the last five games. After struggling offensively for over a week, the Hawks hit 55 percent of their field goal attempts in Friday's win over the Jazz.
DeShawn Stevenson sat out Friday's win over the Jazz but is likely to play on Saturday against the Wizards. Anthony Morrow missed his seventh straight game on Friday after being listed as a game-time decision. No word on his status for Saturday's game.
