Hawks, Grizzlies Advance to Second Round

Wednesday night was time for the best teams to assert their dominance.

The Hawks and Nets went back to Atlanta for a crucial Game 5. The winner of a Game 5 almost always wins the series and both teams were fighting to be on the better side of history. Atlanta jumped out to an early 33-16 lead to end the first quarter, but Brooklyn fought hard for the rest of the game. Unfortunately, the Nets didn’t get enough from the starters to pull out another win. The Hawks have a 3-2 series lead heading Brooklyn on Friday.

Portland tried to force a Game 6 at home, but Memphis was just too much. The Trailblazers tied it up at the end of the first quarter, then went cold for much of the second. It was close until the final minutes, but the Grizzlies made more shots in crunch time to come away with the 99-93 victory. They will play the Warriors in the second round on Sunday.
