Default Do the Wizards stand a chance against the Hawks?

Assuming it's Wizards @ Hawks for round 2, how do you see it going down? Can the Wizards actually win the series? Or are they just looking decent because Toronto is playing like garbage? I think Hawks in 6

Honestly the Wizards were one of the worst teams coming into the postseason for East standards.

I honestly cant believe the Raptors are this bad.

John wall flat out admitted during the reg season that they dont have an answer for small ball and the hawks' lineups, so no.

No.

Atlanta should win comfortably in 5 or 6

Not at the way they played this season, but any team is capable of a collapse.

The Wiz even last year showed they are a better playoff team than regular season team. They rebound and play defense translates well into the playoffs. They will not be an easy out for any east playoff team

I very much like the matchup. Teague is athletic enough to hang with Wall, and we won't let Beal get wide open looks. Our bigs really cause problems for theirs because of how quick they are. Nene and Gortat don't want to chase Al and Paul out to the high post and beyond.

Plus we have a big time coaching mismatch in our favor.

Match-up favors the Hawks at the moment, but the Wizards could make it interesting.

Wizards certainly aren't going to win the first two on the road again, I'll say that.

I love how east matchups come down to "any team is capable of a collapse"

Wizards are better in the postseason because they don't have to play their scrub bench as much. But no they don't match up well with the Hawks.

Their only chance is to completely dominate the boards. Rebounding seems to be the Hawks only weakness.

Again, how come no one ever talks about the free pass the Hawks gets to the ECF?

No they don't have a shot. They don't matchup well at all. When you add that to the fact that they just aren't as good of a team in the first place...over in 5. 6 at the most.

It was discussed when they eased off the last game of the season against the bulls. They wanted no part of them. Genius move by coach bud if you ask me. Only getting one of either the cavs or bulls instead of both back to back is very wise.
