Celtics beat Bulls, take 3-2 series lead

Let's examine five takeaways from Wednesday night, as Washington took a 3-2 series lead. He was referring to the Wizards holding homecourt, and how Atlanta was undeterred by the deficit, expecting to do the same.

Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap (4) works against Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris (5) in the first half in Game 4 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series Monday, April 24, 2017, in Atlanta.

The Warriors advanced to the conference semifinals, where they'll face the victor of the series between the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers, which is tied at 2. Game 5 will be played on Wednesday night at the Verizon Center.

Speaking of a slump, Wizards' frontcourt of Otto Porter, Morris and Marcin Gortat all will attempt to break out of their subpar play as of late and help the Wizards regain the series lead before heading back to Atlanta for Game 6. "Bron today just said he feels worse when he doesn't play".

Basically, the Wizards are John Wall and Bradley Beal. Guards DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined for 34 points between them to balance out the attack.

Schroder's fifth 3-pointer cut the Wizards' lead to 101-99 with 1:10 remaining, but Wall countered with a jumper on Washington's next possession.

Before Game 5, the Wizards held another one of these sessions.

The Warriors jumped out to a 14-0 lead at the start. Monday, it was in the second quarter when their dismantling began despite Schroder's attacking ability and spot of yellow hair being on the bench. And Schroder, after going scoreless in a first half spent largely on the bench, managed to put up 18 points. They dominated Game 3 and took a convincing win in Game 4 to protect their home floor. But Johnson's Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports was strong enough to contend with Kyle Larson, the points leader and most dominant driver of the day.

Durant finished with 10 points in 21 minutes. Paul Millsap finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds.

After not turning the ball over once in the first quarter, Washington turned it over eight times in the second.

The Hawks took 93 shots, its highest total of the series, but resulted in just 99 points, their lowest total in five games. "We missed a couple rebounds, missed a couple layups, shots". Interestingly it's Beal - not Wall - who has excelled as the * a href="http://stats.nba.com/players/ball-handler/#!?CF=Poss*GE*10&Season=2016-17&SeasonType=Playoffs&sort=PPP&dir=1" target="_blank" *ball handler in pick and rolls (1.21 per, 29 possessions). Wall accounted for 31 points on his 14 assists, as his teammates were hitting their good looks in Game 5. By the end of the evening, he was smiling at the postgame podium in a sweater any grandmother would approve of.

"He knows his body better than anyone", Lue said. If he doesn't make the first team, that's more about the time he missed due to injury (and a good field of guards who can defend) than his play.

"Every game is a little bit different, and at times offensively it felt like we were kind of struggling to score", Budenholzer said. Atlanta is hanging tough with the rival Wizards, but even a divisional foe can't peck a game away from its Southeast nemesis.

Beal lead his team with 27 points, five boards, and three blocks. His fourth foul was a result of doing so. "We made mistakes in that second quarter that we didn't make in the first quarter". If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

Brooks said Morris has been out of rhythm because of foul trouble the last three games but added, "He'll bounce back". Boston and Chicago are tied. Game 6 will be on Friday at Philips Arena and Atlanta will battle against elimination.
