If you are a Hawks of Atlanta fan and you Bet on NBA at a Sportsbook or online at CRSportsBet.eu, surely you’re aware the Hawks team has 4 All-Stars on their roster this season. Having said that, from game to game it often hard to see a star, but in the 5th game their star A. Horford came to life, and was the star that the Hawks real needs in these final crucial playoff games. He happens to be the guy that took the rebound off the offensive board and scored the go ahead points in that game. Plus he made 5 blocks, had 11 rebounds and scored 23 points in their win. And let’s not forget about their defensive efforts in that 5th Game in which the team made 13 blocks, had 11 steals in the game, and held the Wizard to shooting a mere 37% on their field goals. In the Hawks past 10 games against the Wizards they are 6 and 3 and 1 against the spread.
Meanwhile, for the Wizard fans were amazed that one of their stars P. Pierce made a 3-pointer with just 8.2 seconds left in the Game bringing the Wizard to an 81 to 80 lead. Then the Hawks came back and A. Horford won the game for Atlanta connecting for 2 points and the 82-81 wins over the Wizards.
The Washington team as well as the Hawks had a rough time connecting on their 3-pointers. In the Wizard are going to win this Game 6, they will need better performances out of the deep shooters in Beal, Pierce, Wall and Bradley. With Wall no back in the lineup the Wizards should be able to come alive and at least win this game 6 and tie the series. The Washington Wizards in their last overall 10 games, they are 8 and 2 against the Spread.
The media experts expect Wall to display his talents to his home fans in this 6th game, as the Wizards will beat the Hawks 108 to 102 and tie the Series at 3-3 and the playoff will return to Atlanta for the Final 7th Game.
