The Spurs invented the style of basketball that the Hawks have implemented successfully this season, and it has consistently presented difficulties for the Wizards going into Tuesday's game.
Last week, Glen Rice. Jr.'s time with the Wizards ended. Now comes the next challenge. The question has been where, a question that has apparently been answered.
The Wizards are 25-12 and that puts them into any contention talk. Learning to beat the best of the best on the road is the next step.
The Wizards may have solved how to beat the Chicago Bulls, but the Hawks are a different story as they've lost to them twice after a 31-point defeat on Sunday.
