Frim crybaby to MMA, bad blood boils over for Wizards-Hawks

Posted April 24, 2017

They've threatened to turn basketball into mixed martial arts. Two of those teams, of course, were in last year's playoffs as the Warriors did it against the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals and the Cavaliers then did the same to the Warriors in the NBA Finals.

ATLANTA (AP) - The Hawks are back in the series, and the bad blood with the Washington Wizards shows no signs of letting up.

"They jumped on us in that first period", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said.

"It's the playoffs, we shouldn't like each other", he said. We're kind of like thinking they were going to give us the game a little bit and they came out, they were more physical. "It's not a friendly contest".

This time, the Wizards are the favored team with home-court advantage.

"They've got a smell of a win, so they're confident now", Bradley Beal said. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Each little slight is magnified. After Millsap's MMA comments went public, Morris began trash talking and going at Millsap even more, regardless of what the score was.

"It's fun to me". The Wizards were a shell of themselves as no one could buy a bucket except for Wall so while the momentum is with the Hawks, I'm sticking with the Wizards to bounce back as I can't see the like of Beal, Morris and Gortat playing that poorly again. "It's been an interesting series. I'm enjoying every minute of it".

After two tight losses in Washington exposed plenty of ill feelings between the teams, Millsap and Washington's Markieff Morris continued to go at it in Game 3.

Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder and John Wall have been in an intense matchup during the first round of the playoffs. Wall acknowledged that he's still ticked off at Schroder for an Instagram post after the Hawks eliminated Washington in 2015. Paul Millsap led the team with 29 points, 14 rebounds and five assists, Dennis Schroder added 27 points with nine assists while Taurean Prince chipped in with 16 points. "You get all the calls when you're a crybaby". And at times I thought they were talking to us, but you know, they're up 25 points, they should be talking to us. "It's frustration. When you lose, sometimes you're saying things that aren't true, maybe".

"I think anytime that happens, I think we rise to the occasion". It's a great series. We're a good team. John Wall kept up his dazzling play in the series, scoring 29 points, but the point guard got no help from his teammates.

"I guess there has probably been just a few choices of words that are somewhat inflammatory", Budenholzer said. I want to take him full court.

To say that Game 4 is a pivotal one would be an understatement. "Nobody's out here trying to fight".

"We've got to take care of business". "That's part of basketball".

Dennis Schroder, right, drives past Bradley Beal in the first quarter of Game 3.

The Wizards came to Atlanta with a 2-0 lead in the series, but were unable to recover after a fast start by the Hawks.
