Second half is the difference for Wiz
The Wizards allowed 63 points in the 1st half, matching the most they allowed in any half of a playoff game in the past 25 years (spans 45 games in 7 playoffs). In the 2nd half, however, Washington allowed only 35 points, its 4th fewest in any half of a playoff game in 25 years.
FINAL: Wizards 104, Hawks 98
With a second-half surge, the Wizards came back to beat the Hawks and take Game 1 of the conference semis. Bradley Beal led all scorers with 28 points. Box score
