Wizards Vs. Hawks Score: Washington Leads Atlanta 29-18 Through One

The Atlanta Hawks couldn't have played much worse of a first quarter against a terrible Washington Wizards team.

Andre Blatche netted nine points and John Wall added six to post the Wizards to a 29-18 lead through one quarter at the Verizon Center.

Former Hawk Maurice Evans has four points and Jordan Crawford has two in just 5:33 of action for Washington, which is trying to snap a 12 game losing streak to Atlanta.

The Hawks are getting run all over in this one. They shot just 35-percent (7-for-20) in the first, while the Wizards connected on 52-percent (11-for-21) of their shots. Atlanta's turned the ball over seven times and is losing the battle of the glass by a 15-7 margin.

This one is just plain ugly early.

Atlanta was forced to go to its bench with Zaza Pachulia and Joe Johnson picking up two first quarter fouls. The reserves haven't exactly been spectacular either.

Marvin Williams has six first quarter points while Johnson and Jeff Teague posted four each for Atlanta.

Former Wizards Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong were both scoreless in the first 12 minutes of the game.
