Third quarter launches Wizards to victory

Posted on March 30, 2014

There is no such thing as a bad win. The Wizards defeated the Atlanta Hawks 101-97 and are now within a game of their first playoff spot since 2008. If the Knicks lose today to Golden State,  the Wizards will secure a postseason berth. If the knicks win, then the Wizards can achieve the playoffs with a win Monday in Charlotte

It was not easy against the Hawks. At halftime we were concerned when the Wizards only had five assists. After the break the Wizards became more aggressive on defense and held the Hawks to 19 ppoints on 27 percent shooting from the field in the third quarter. Go figure. In a season when the Wizards have struggled in third quarters, on Saturday it was the quarter that saved them against the Hawks.
