The Say –

John Wall is essentially the reason the Wizards pulled in Game 1, finishing with 32 points (15 pts in the 3rd) and 14 assists, and breaking down the Atlanta defense at will.

At Tuesday’s practice, Hardaway and rookie Taurean Prince came up with the idea of setting up a “wall” of defenders quickly to prevent Wall from doing his thing on the fast break.

The Wizards seem to have the Hawks where they want them, and with this so called “wall” in the playbook, expect  20 assists from the man in question.

The Say –

Houston put the Thunder to the sword in Game 1, rattling them to the tune of 31 points. The Rockets scored 62 points in the paint and 31 2nd chance points against the bigger Oklahoma City forward line.

A telling statement following Game 1 from the MVP favourite –

“I don’t watch the other team, I just watch what I’m doing,” Westbrook said. “I never worry about what other guys are doing. It doesn’t bother me; I’ve seen it all already, and it doesn’t worry (me).”

We’ll take the spread the way of the home team once again, with the Rockets just having too many ways to score.

The Say –

Is KD sitting tonight after 32 point return in Game 1 after sitting out the Tuesday workout?

That’s the big question coming into Game 2 with Durant listed questionable with a strained left calf. Shaun Livingston is also a “maybe” with a finger sprain.

“If he didn’t practice (Durant), there’s concern,” Coach Kerr said.

Watch for lineups, but even if Durant sits we’ll be taking the overs, with the line for the Warriors our Feeling Lucky.
