Game Preview:

The Atlanta Hawks are looking for their second straight win after defeating the New Jersey Nets 106-70 on Tuesday. Washington dropped its home opener 90-84 to the Nets on Monday and blew a big lead in the process. The Hawks got 55 points from its bench on Tuesday led by Vladimir Radmanovic's 17 points. No starter played more than 26 minutes so they should be well rested for Wednesday's second game of the back-to-back.

The Wizards haven't played since Monday but have been in the news thanks to the post-game comments made by power forward Andray Blatche. Tonight's game also marks the return of former Hawks draft pick Jordan Crawford to Philips Arena. Crawford started and scored 15 points in the Wizards season opener.
