Russillo @ryenarussillo

ATL keeps losing shooters and Wash is making them pay, Hawks were 3/13 from 3 in first half.

Kevin Arnovitz @kevinarnovitz

With no John Wall ripping into them with penetration, Hawks' haven't had to shift, which has enabled them to shore up weakside arc.

Wizards feeling Wall's absence

John Wall's replacement tonight, Ramon Sessions, had just one assist for Washington in the first half. Wall has at least one assist in each quarter he's played in during this postseason.

Curry makes backup plans for June
