    Atlanta never does well in playoffs, no matter what they have done in the regular season. This will be a somewhat surprisingly lopsided series.

    Wizards in 5.

    Are both Milsap and Howard are healthy? If so, Atlanta could surprise folks.

    I will watch at least 1 or 2 games of every PO series, except these. I really don't have any interest in watching these 2 teams play each other.

    Ranking every NBA playoff series by upset potential

    3. Washington Wizards (4) vs. Atlanta Hawks (5)
    Given their point differential (plus-1.8 ppg) is the weakest of the teams with home-court advantage in the first round, the Wizards should be vulnerable -- except they drew the one playoff team with a worse point differential (minus-0.9 ppg) than the other 15 playoff teams as well as three (the Charlotte Hornets, Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat) that are watching from home.

    One possible edge for the Hawks: They're the other underdog with an advantage in terms of playoff experience. Despite their first-round wins in 2014 and 2015, the Wizards have the fewest playoff minutes on their roster of any playoff team this season.

    Upset probability: 18 percent

    I rile on Dwight a lot, and hate how he just is annoying. Shouldve made it work with Harden...All that being said, Dwight wins in the playoffs...and he has done so throughout his career.

    The Wizards had a nice season, but this is my 2nd upset. I think Atlanta beats Washington.

    NBATV? Try "ESPN 8 The Ocho."

    Great start by Washington, but not for Dwight.

    Playoff Dwight is officially dead, along with his athleticism.

    Now that Dwight is out of the game you know Atlanta will mount a comeback.

    Dwight is like the 6'10 Russell Westbrook. Dwight doesn't contest shots anymore so he can go for the rebound.

    Wizards need to get Dwight in the game as soon as possible.

    It is much less painful to watch Dwert in action when he is not playing for your team.

    You can already tell why Washington isn't a top 3 team in the East. Morris is the worst PF in the league.
