A lot of the higher seeded NBA playoff teams are feeling the heat and not playing well at crunch time. Atlanta is the No. 1 seed in the East, but trails this series 2-1. Atlanta power forward Paul Millsap struggled in Game 3 with just eight points and two rebounds while plagued with flu-like symptoms, and is just 14-of-39 shooting in the series. Atlanta is on a 3-8-1 ATS run, 1-4-1 ATS on the road, plus 3-13-1 ATS in its last 17 Conference Semifinal games. Washington has been in command of much of this series, leading by 21 points with under 10 minutes to play in Game 3. Paul Pierce banked in a jumper at the buzzer to give Washington a 103-101 victory on Saturday, and the fifth-seeded Wizards now have a chance to take a commanding lead. Look for a fierce battle and grab home court as the home team is 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings, and the Hawks are 2-5-2 ATS at Washington. Play Washington in this one.
