Hawks, Grizzlies Each Take Game 2

After a lackluster performance in Game 1, the Hawks looked to tie things back up at home against the Wizards on Tuesday night. Atlanta started quickly, taking a 7-point lead heading into the half. Washington fought back, but without John Wall, they were not able to steal another one on the road. The Wizards lost their first game of the playoffs, 106-90. The series is now tied going to Washington.

With leader Mike Conley back in the lineup, the Grizzlies came out with more energy. They jumped out to an early lead and did not look back. Golden State tried to play catch up for most of the night, but with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson struggling with their shots, they could never take the lead. The Grizzlies were able to tie the Warriors after two games and head to the Grindhouse for Game 3.
