However, the signature moment came with just 38 seconds left: by this point, the Wizards were up five but Wall found Beal for a deep three - raising his hands in jubilation before the ball even hit the net.

The backcourt duo also keeps memories of their previous postseason experience front of mind.

"I think that's what John Wall does", Hawks guard Dennis Schroder said.

Wall scored 32 points and Beal had 16 of his 31 in the fourth quarter as the Wizards outdueled the Hawks 109-101 on Wednesday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.

Neither side was impressive after the All-Star break, but both sides have All-Star talent and ample perimeter depth.

Playing a day after 22-year-old sister Chyna Thomas was killed in a vehicle accident in their home state of Washington, Thomas led the Celtics with 33 points. That's good for him, it's good for the Hawks, and it's good for all of us National Basketball Association fans who don't have to deal with Howard's annoying public persona anymore now that he's settled into normalcy. It's kind of a little vengeance-type thing.

Washington finished with a credible 41-41 record last season but changed coaches after missing the playoffs.

Wizards: Porter scored his first basket of the game on a 20-foot jumper just 16 seconds into the second half - and less than 1½ minutes later, he picked up his fourth foul and headed to the bench. You see it in Wall and Beal. Wall had 831 assists, topping the East for the fourth straight year.

"I won't be finishing first", Wall said. "The start of the season was not the way we wanted to start, so you're looking like, 'I hope we're not going through the same process as a year ago.' To be back in the playoffs ... couldn't ask for (anything) better".

Millsap took issue with the way Morris and the Wizards tried to overpower him in the Hawks' 114-107 loss.

Atlanta will certainly start with a different look in the playoff opener. Taurean Prince is the third double-digit scorer and Tim Hardaway Jr.is grabbing four rebounds. Wall kept the Hawks' defenders guessing the entire game by intelligently manipulating his acceleration.

The Wizards did not start the season well under Brooks.

"They were more aggressive than us in the third quarter on both ends", Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Once we get stops, we're off to the races, and it's tough to guard us that way".

"We're going back to Atlanta".

The point here is that I am not sure if Atlanta has shown enough consistency to make a deep run in the playoffs.

The Wizards were 3-5 in their final 8 regular season games. Wizards C Ian Mahinmi (calf) is expected to miss Game 3.

In terms of individual performances, Paul Millsap led the way with 27 points and 10 rebounds, while Dennis Schröder contributed 23 points and six assists.

Howard reached the NBA Finals with Orlando in 2009.

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. "If we do that, we'll all be happy". "That's the goal. Sixteen games".
