The Atlanta Hawks will look to slow down the red hot Washington Wizards when they hit the road for the final time in November. With just a 1-4 record on the road this season, Atlanta can put the blame on that record due to their lack of defensive stops. On the road, Atlanta is allowing 107.4 points per game.

The Hawks come off an impressive 99-89 in which Jeff Teague dropped 28 points to lead all scorers. Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer was pleased with Teague’s offensive performance, but was most satisfied with his play on the defensive end. Teague stepped up down the stretch with a couple steals to solidify the Hawks victory.

While that was just a small sample size, Atlanta will need to step up as a team in order to string together some wins. The Hawks are ranked 24th overall defensively, allowing 102.5 points per game. Atlanta will need to slow down Wizards PG John Wall, who is scoring 19.4 points a game.


The Wizards are putting an emphasis on team basketball thus far. While they rank just 18th in total points (99.3 points per game), the Wizards are one of the best teams at sharing the ball. The team ranks 3rd overall in the NBA with 24.7 assists a game. Wall leads the Wizards with over 9 assists a game.

Washington has opened up a 2 game lead in the Southeast division thanks in large part to their success at home. So far this season the Wizards are 5-1 at the Verizon Center and are averaging just over 100 points per home contest. While Washington is winning straight up at home, backers should be caution of their 2-4 ATS record.

A key to Washington’s early season success can also fall on different players stepping up at key times. After a signature win against the Cavaliers, the Wizards found themselves trailing by 15 points to the Milwaukee Bucks. PG John Wall and SF Paul Pierce took the team on their shoulders and led the Wizards to a second half comeback and an 11 point win.
