walk the plank swabby. the wizards were struggling in dst of a 3-9 stretch in february, arrr, but wittman is proving to be a wizard when it comes to playoff road games, pun intended there. round two eastern semis in atlanta. hawks were supposed to be the tired team, but al horford starting fast. hawks led by 11 after one. atlanta jacked up 38 three- point shots. that one went down, but they shot themselves out of rhythm a lot in this game. late 3rd wall to drew gooden, dr. drew, what's the recipe? yeah, right there, washington's bench players plus nine compared to atlanta. 4th quarter bradley beal parmesan was good. he had 28 but injured his ankle. back to the bench otto porter, ottomatic, 10 points, 11
rebounds. washington taking advantage of the rest to win 104-98. >> that's only one. that doesn't mean nothing. we want to come out and compete. we know this is a resilient team. i had one careless turnover. they'll come back more aggressive tuesday. that's only one win. >> wall banged his wrist but came right back. as for bradley beal's ankle, he returned after landing on al horford's foot, but he'll need every hour of rehab before tuesday's game two. wizards have won four straight road playoff games. that's an nba record. to the nats taking on the mets. that's a beautiful shot right there. doug fister only needed 89 pitches and most of them looked just like this, baby, good wine and good cheese. shutout baseball for him today. all the runs in the 1st. ryan zimmerman's broken bat bloop doing the trick here.
nats win 1-0, same score as last night, first time in franchise history the nats /expos have won back to back 1- 0 games. >> we understand that we got to play well to win. our pitching was fantastic the last two days. the first game in we scored a lot of runs. doesn't matter how we get it done as long as we get it done. it was nice to play against a first place club and play well and win. look who is back in town, the caps working out at kettler preparing for tomorrow night's game three. washington 3-1 on home ice during the playoffs, but the rangers undefeated when skating on the road and the best team in the league during regular season. expect them to bring it tomorrow night. >> we know that they'll come out strong tomorrow and we got to make sure that we do our best to sort of meet their push and cause them to step back on
their heels. >> they are going to bring some energy and we got to do the same. finally mayweather, pacquiao, you spent 100 bucks on this thing, you probably feel a little bit violated by now, the two putting on a hugging expo last night, but mayweather true to form, a defensive fighter and you can't hit what you can't catch. pacman told reporters he thought he was leading the fight which is why he didn't press mayweather. overhyped, boring, bizarre, all of the above. >> i'm very happy because they showed the fight even though i cannot use a lot my right hand, but the fight is still good. >> i can quit boxing today and i'm a-okay. but like i said, i'm blessed and manny is blessed and he's one hell of a fighter.
>> howard asking when the rematch is. with so little hitting last night they could fight today. >> wouldn't watch the rematch if it was free. it's a good day to be you. >> yeah. beautiful evening, tomorrow mid- 80s and we could get a thunderstorm or two by tuesday afternoon. >> good day to be howard? >> thanks for watching. we'll see you back he lets say this is your tv and these are the channels you pay for with cable but these are the types of channels you actually want to watch what if you could pay for what you want, and not for what you don't so you could get kids channels sports... or entertainment mix and match, or get them all. now fios brings you a totally new way to customize your tv starting at $74.99 -- including internet and phone. cable just gives you channels. fios gives you choice.
