Wizards draw blood, Hawks hanging on

After taking two blows to the nose, Atlanta wing Kyle Korver headed to the locker room to have a bloody nose stopped. He's back on the floor for the final minute, as the Hawks look to close out a Game 2 win.

Hawks missed a ton of open looks tonight. Wiz damn near needed Sessions to go the full 48. Otto Porter's arms are a problem.

Hawks throwing late haymakers

Atlanta's Pero Antic hit a big 3 then drew a foul on Marcin Gortat, his sixth, and the Hawks have surged to a double-digit lead late in the fourth quarter. Follow live

Steve Kerr joined Pat Riley as 2 of 5 coaches to win first 5 career playoff games (D'Antoni, Sharman, Kundla). Riley won first 9 w/Lakers

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

One of these PGs was an All-Star, and one backed up Darren Collison. Can you tell who's who tonight?

Hawks start out hot in fourth

The Wizards had narrowed Atlanta's lead to 5 after three, but 4 unanswered points from the Hawks in the first 2 minutes of the 4th quarter forced Washington to call timeout. DeMarre Carroll leads all scorers with 20 points, his sixth consecutive 20-point game. Follow live

Wizards slow Hawks' offense

Bradley Beal is heating up, but the key to a Washington run has been the defense. The Hawks scored 21 transition points in the first half, but they've only managed 3 such points late in the third quarter. Follow live
