March 2nd Open Thread: Atlanta (33-26) @ Washington (14-45)

TIP-OFF: 7pm

TELEVISION: SportSouth

RADIO: Hawks Radio Network, Audio League Pass

GAME NOTES:
Hawks/Wizards

ATLANTA INJURY REPORT: Speedy Claxton is out.

WASHINGTON INJURY REPORT: Gilbert Arenas, Brendan Haywood, DeShawn Stevenson, and Etan Thomas are out.


FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY: Atlanta -4, 198.5 o/u

OTHER PERSPECTIVES:
Bullets Forever

PREVIOUSLY, THE WASHINGTON WIZARDS...have been sort-of competitive at home recently, winning 4 of their last 9, a stretch that dates back to January 31st. Four of the five losses were by at least 16 points though and they're a cumulative -58 over the nine games. Friday, in their last home game, they blew out the Chicago Bulls who are presumably fighting for the eighth seed in the East. The next night, Washington lost by 16 in Milwaukee to the Redd- and Bogut-less Bucks.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

I was at the game tonight, so since I never get to see games live, I'll give my player grades:

Marvin- A+, wow, he just played so well, and really carried us the whole game
Joe- A-, pretty run of the mill game from Joe, with some really good shots and plays that kept us ahead
Josh- D, all he did all game was whine about fouls he didn't commit
Al- B+, solid game all-around
Mike- C, couldn't buy a bucket, flu still affecting him, I guess
Flip- B+, filled in nicely once again for Bibby
Everyone else did a fine job, nothing too special. We did what we had to do against a clearly inferior team (the Wiz are BAD, but no one needs me to point that out). You could tell we were still sluggish from last night (and the team didn't arrive in DC until 7am this morning, so good job getting up for the game guys).

You would be surprised how many Hawks fans were in attendance last night. Just goes to show that when you win, people like you!
