The 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs feature an Eastern Conference first-round playoff series clash between the No. 4 seed Washington Wizards and the No. 5 seed Atlanta Hawks as the series reopens for Game 2 Wednesday, April 19 at Verizon Center.

Leading 99-96, Wall scored four straight points and then Beal closed it with a three-pointer with 38 seconds remaining to put them up 106-98.

"We just have a lot of confidence", Wall said about the pair turning into closers for Washington during their third playoff appearance and first since 2015.

"I think (Markieff Morris) came out and was aggressive for us in the third quarter and got us going", Wall said.

It wasn't pretty, but it's very nice to see a game like this where there's no flow and Washington was out of sync yet still found a way to win the game. Millsap scored 14 in the period as the Wizards lost their eight-point lead and trailed 78-74 entering the fourth quarter. Sefolosha has historically rated as a good defender and Atlanta need that in this series. Watch Atlanta Hawks vs Washington Wizards Game 2 postseason by using the guide which given below.

Paul Millsap had 27 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawks. Dennis Schroder scored 23 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 19, but Atlanta was 4 of 20 on 3-pointers and committed 18 turnovers. Atlanta will keep doing what it does. "Obviously, the fourth quarter was not good offense". In the end, despite plenty of opportunities to steal one on the road, the Hawks were unable to take advantage and bowed out late in the fourth quarter. He is the first Wizard to record 14 points, 10 rebounds, and five blocks in a playoff game since Brendan Haywood in 2005. Atlanta shot 33 of 38 and Washington finished 24 of 33. "Wasn't too insane out there". The Wizards expect a more engaged Atlanta team in Game 2, particularly considering Paul Millsap's "MMA" comment after Game 1. That lead remained until Brandon Jennings hit back-to-back jumpers and fed Jason Smith for a tying dunk during a 70-second flurry.

Beal followed with a jumper for an 86-84 lead, one of seven lead changes in the final 7:18.

"It was a tricky game to coach", said Washington's Scott Brooks, who avoided postgame criticism of the officiating, joking that he already knew he would be getting a text message from his daughter about a $2,000 fine he drew for a technical foul. "We don't care if he shoots the ball 30 times". Then it came around to him. Below is a highlight video from that game in case you missed the action. Marcin Gortat also notched another double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Wizards protected home court. He stuffed Dwight Howard multiple times, grabbed six offensive rebounds, and paced the Wizards in the first half when Beal and Wall combined for 8/22 from the field.

Houston Rockets center Clint Capela (15) blocks a shot attempt by Oklahoma City Thunder guard Victor Oladipo (5) during the first quarter in game two of the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Toyota Center. The teams split the two regular-season games in Atlanta with Washington winning the most recent meeting 112-86 on January 27.
