Paul Millsap: Wizards playing MMA in Game 1 win

Can the Washington Wizards pick up another win at home when they host the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of their series tonight at 7PM ET?

"It wasn't pretty", Harden said. "We continued to fight and grind and figure out a way to win".

Talk about following the game plan. "I have to stay focused on it", Gortat said.

"Nah, I was all right", he said. Game 2 took nearly three hours to complete because of the absurd amount of whistles being blown. "James draws a lot of attention. It was great timing to knock down a shot like that".

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Wesley Bryan rallied to win his home-state RBC Heritage for his first PGA Tour title, closing with a 4-under 67 on Sunday for a one-stroke victory over Luke Donald. "We have to do a better job of taking care of the ball, especially in the fourth quarter".

Playing a day after 22-year-old sister Chyna Thomas was killed in a auto accident in their home state of Washington, Thomas led the Celtics with 33 points. In short, the officials took three frontcourt players out of the game before it started to get interesting.

Roberson added a tip-in layup for the Thunder before two free throws by Westbrook tied it at 104-all with about 3 minutes left.

Prince scored 16 points, hit a couple of 3-pointers and energized the Hawks with his aggressive play.

No 3-pointers from the Hawks in the first half didn't help.

Washington center Marcin Gortat finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds. After saying they wanted to limit Washington's transition game, the Hawks held the Wizards to 16 fast-break points, nine fewer than in Game 1. "Everybody's confident in me". He's the most mild-mannered person that I've been around that has a competitive spirit.

"I was just hoping that he would stick the landing".

Just days after Hawks forward Paul Millsap compared the Wizards physical style in Game 1 to mixed martial arts, 55 total fouls were called and 71 free throw attempted in a brutal contest. I was finally able to take some shots and shoot it with confidence, so that's definitely a confidence boost. John Wall was the star of the game with an impressive stat line. Both times featured John Wall doing John Wall things (26 points, 17 assists in 2015; 32 points, 9 assists on Wednesday).

Late Friday, a White House official said the announcement would include an outline of tax overhaul priorities and principles. His report will explore if it would be better to liquidate troubled financial firms through a modified form of bankruptcy.

"He came in, he gave us energy, he made some shots", Brooks said. Nowadays he's a pass-first backup for the Wizards, asked mainly to push the pace while John Wall is taking a much-needed rest.

Al Horford had 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Celtics. "Just a little bit of a gut feel". Afterward, Millsap was quoted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as saying, "The difference in the game was we were playing basketball and they were playing MMA".

Oubre had two steals and 11 points in the game.

He also got a big lift from the Bulls' young reserves, who outscored their Boston counterparts 35-22.

The typically spot-on Splash Brothers weren't hitting consistently.

Game 2 in the first-round series is Tuesday night in Boston.

"I can't comeback with all of that on my mind and try and do it by myself", Wall said. "Get an open shot at least". Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics scored 33 points with six assists and five rebounds against the Chicago Bulls in a losing effort, producing a PIE score of 18.6. Sefolosha has historically rated as a good defender and Atlanta need that in this series. "I think we have to execute better offensively". "If we gonna jostle the whole series, then that's what it's going to be".

"We've got to have this one", Lillard said.

The game swung wildly, particularly in the first half. Portland played again without center Jusuf Nurkic, and missed him. Although offense owned the second half and made the game easier to watch, this performance was still about the Wizards' willingness to scrap.

"This is a game where it felt like there was some improvement from (Game) 1 to 2", Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Neither team entered the postseason with much momentum. "It gets more ball-handlers, more guys who can get to the paint".
