RECAP: The Hawks manage to take back home-court advantage by tying the series in a 106-101 win over the Wizards. Jeff Teague led the team with 26 points and 8 assists, hitting a clutch three with less than two minutes left in regulation. Millsap also had a good game with 19 points and 6 assists, but he was limited in the second half due to getting in foul trouble early in the game. The series has been back-and-forth despite injuries to key players (most notably John Wall). The Hawks, who have struggled mightily in the first three games of the series, finally seemed to get their groove back by being more aggressive.

We need this win. Can't go back to Washington down 3-2. Hopefully we continue to see the aggressiveness from Teague and all the guys just playing more confidently on both ends of the court.

Must win game and no excuse to lose it @home and no Wall.

Gotta be aggressive and we should win. If we come out complacent, content with Mondays win and having HCA back it will be a tough game and another L.

Heading to the game tonight and ALMOST wore my "Pac is Back" T shirt to the office.

Maybe if we get to the final . . . .

Anyone else going tonight? I'll be the one in the red Pacman shirt.

Hoping to see Korver get going a little at home. Also hoping we don't see the ridiculous shooting display we saw from Washington last game.

Wonder what the odds are on Wall giving it a go tonight.

I keep hearing light drills, etc. I'm thinking it's a 50/50 shot but ultimately I think they want to rest him and hope to steal it tonight and give it a go in 6. Strangely enough, I think they'd probably be better off without him out there.

That's almost pretty much in line with what I'm thinking but I don't want to jinx it. It's not to hard for me to imagine another cities' superstar somehow overcoming huge injury odds to become this huge national story and add to the annals of Atlanta sports misery.

Wall won't play tonight or any other night. Bet the farm on it.

This game IMO shows us whether or not we are serious about a championship. We win then count us in. If not we'll head back to Washington for the possible (most likely) defeat.

Garuntees are for death and taxes. Not ATL Sports lol

Paul Pierce can't keep on making 3's at this pace. He is too old... Bet the farm on it..

The Braves can't blow a 2-0 lead in the 1996 WS against the Yanks with 3 games at home coming up... Bet the farm.
