With two straight wins, the top-seeded Atlanta Hawks are looking to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since relocating from St. Louis in 1968.
If they plan doing that Friday, they’ll have to do so in Washington when they meet the Wizards on the road in Game 6 of their semifinal series.
The Wizards’ John Wall returned from missing 3 games with a broken hand to score 15 points and dish out 7 assists in Game 5, but Al Horford’s last second-shot gave the Hawks the victory and the 3-2 series edge.
The game will tip off at 7 p.m. Eastern and is being televised by ESPN.
Dave Pasch play-by-play), P.J. Carlesimo (analysis), and Chris Broussard (reporter) are on the call.
