Washington Wizards vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

John Wall, Bradley Beal and the Wizards invade Philips Arena on this fine Friday evening.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks will play host to the Washington Wizards on Friday night in a game that many people are looking forward to through the prism of a late January battle. There is a halftime concert, a pre-game ceremony to honor the Super Bowl-bound Atlanta Falcons and, yes, even some high-level basketball to be played. John Wall and Bradley Beal lead a red-hot Wizards team and the Hawks will have their hands full if the opponent plays at maximum capacity.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
