The Hawks divulged their starting five for the postseason, and they’ll do battle with the Wizards with a group of Dennis Schroder, Tim Haradaway Jr., Taurean Prince, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard.
Prince is the surprise name, and it means that Kent Bazemore will come off the bench. The rookie really impressed down the stretch, averaging 10.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.0 threes per game over the final month. He may have earned himself the same role entering next season, though we’ll wait for the offseason to unfold before making any claims about that. The Hawks are set to engage the Wiz in what should be a competitive series.
