More reason for the Wizards to get Marcin Gortat more involved offensively: the Hawks outscored the Wizards, 60-34, in points in the paint in Game 3 and by 44-30 in Game 4 per ESPN Stats and Info.

Hawks' Dennis Schroder exploited the Wizards going under on pick and rolls, scoring eight points in the last five minutes on open perimeter shots off picks. Schroder (18 points) and Paul Millsap (19 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists) staved one final charge by the Wizards' John Wall (22 points, 10 assists) and Bradley Beal (32 points). The Hawks got team-wide contributions with Dwight Howard (16 points, 15 rebounds), Kent Bazemore (16 points, 7 assists) and Jose Calderon (10 points, 5 assists) all playing their best and most impactful game of the series.

Paul Millsap is doing it all for the Hawks. He grabbed an offensive rebound, was fouled and threw the ball up and in while falling down before converting the three-point play. He then screened two Wizards at once to free up Dennis Schroder for a 3. Millsap has 18 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds so far.

The Hawks' bench has provided a major spark for Mike Budenholzer. Atlanta's subs have outscored Washington's bench, 24-12, in the first half. Kent Bazemore is having his best game of the series with 10 points, 5 assists and 2 steals in the first half alone. Jose Calderon has drilled a couple of 3's with Dwight Howard helping open things up for the Hawks' offense with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the first half.

Kent Bazemore is picking up the play-making slack with Dennis Schroder saddled with three fouls. Bazemore has five assists, including a thunderous alley-oop to Dwight Howard. Howard is finally making his presence felt in this series with 13 points and 8 rebounds. He's not only active on the glass but he's muscling the Wizards in the paint, something Paul Millsap will surely welcome. Now Marcin Gortat has to deal with Howard and Millsap on the glass.

Mike Budenholzer's point guards are in foul trouble. Dennis Schroder and Jose Calderon have three personal fouls midway through the second quarter. The Hawks have had issues with solid backup point guard play so Bud will keep Calderon in with Schroder on the bench.

Markieff Morris is in early foul trouble again with two fouls in five minutes. This only helps Paul Millsap, who practically sees a bullseye when he sees Jason Smith on him.
