Keep an eye on:
Trae Young/ John Collins: They’re hot right now coming off a win over the Suns on Saturday. John Collins scored a career high 35 points and grabbed 16 rebounds while Trae Young posted a near triple double with 27 points, 8 assist and 7 rebounds. The Hawks have earned victories over the Bulls, Clippers and Suns over a seven game road trip that ends tonight. Atlanta is young, so Washington can’t count on physical fatigue although the mental aspect may be possible. Also, the Hawks rank fourth in offensive rebounds (11.7) and they’re sixth in the league in three point attempts, attempting nearly 35 from deep. If the Wizards come in with a sense of urgency, they should once again be able to pull out a victory over the Hawks. If they come in nonchalant, the Hawks will add a fourth victory on this road trip.
