Atlanta Hawks vs. Washington Wizards Game 3 thread

Can the Hawks pick up a victory on Saturday evening?

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

It is now or never for the Atlanta Hawks, even if that isn't "technically" true. The Hawks must avoid a commanding 3-0 deficit with a victory on Saturday evening in order to stay functionally alive in the team's first round series against the Washington Wizards and the task isn't a small one. To be fair, Atlanta is actually favored (!) to pick up the win according to the smart guys in Las Vegas and it is a winnable spot. Still, the Hawks must play better to achieve victory.

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