Here are five must-see moments or plays from the Washington Wizards' 112-86 win over the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena on Friday night that are worth revisiting...
1. The Wizards blew the Hawks out of the water on Friday night, to the point where most of Washington's starters rested the entire fourth quarter. The Wizards were in control early and outscored the Hawks 37-25 in the first quarter.
Three of those points came on this shot from by Bradley Beal on a fastbreak set up by a turnover caused by Marcin Gortat:
2. This play featured two of the Wizards' youngest players combining for two points. Kelly Oubre, Jr. got the steal and found rookie Tomas Satoransky cutting to the basket for a wide-open dunk. He made the pass while on the floor:
3. This was one of the most impressive plays of the game, but also a bit of a scary moment. John Wall converted an and-1 layup on the fastbreak, but took a hard fall when Paul Millsap nudged him from behind. It may have reminded some of Wall's injury in the 2015 playoffs, a broken wrist that he sustained on a similar play at the same basket in Atlanta:
Wall, who finished with 19 points and nine assists, also ended up in the stands on another play, this one much less scary:

4. Wall had plenty of other sweet plays in the Wizards' win, including this sick finger roll to beat the shot clock:
5. There was also this impressive scoop of the glass where Wall helped put the finishing touches on the blowout:
Yes, this game was out of hand early, so we at CSN had some fun on our CSN Wizards account at the Hawks' expense. Here are some of the best memes we came up with:
